Elkind, Susie - Oakland  
Susie Elkind April 9, 1949- May 22, 2015 Oakland resident Susie Elkind died peacefully at home in the wee small hours of the morning. In the weeks before her death, she was visited by legions of loving friends and family members, including her niece, nephews, and two of her great-nephews. Susie had many special gifts and talents: cooking, gardening, photography, tap-dancing, quilting, and doing crossword puzzles in ink. In recent years she worked at Oakland Rotary and volunteered as a gardener at Children's Fairyland. As a freelance copy editor for McGraw-Hill, she could spot a typo or a misused apostrophe a mile away. Susie held a variety of interesting part-time jobs, which allowed her to see the world and seek out adventures, including a solo trip to Kenya, a recent visit to Italy, multiple theatre-going jaunts to London, and many excursions to New York City. Her lifelong passion for theatre began in childhood, watching the plays her father directed at El Cerrito High, from which she graduated in 1967. She earned a BA in psychology from UC Berkeley in 1971. Susie never missed a new play, a jazz concert, or an opportunity to attend the opera or a dance performance. She was a longtime volunteer usher at Berkeley Rep and the Aurora Theatre. In addition to her love for the arts, Susie was an avid baseball fan, following the Giants from Candlestick Park to China Basin. She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Risa and Bruce Nye; niece Caitlin (Christian) and nephews Myles (Laurel) and James (Ashley-Renée); great-niece and nephews Madeleine, Ezra, Fenton, and Samuel. She is also survived by beloved aunts Ruth and Rockie, her uncle Chuck, and dear cousins.Susie is predeceased by her parents, Sam and Betty Elkind. Susie nourished many friendships, and stitched together a life full of "small-world" stories. She will be remembered for her generous spirit, positive energy, sense of adventure, devotion to family, and her lovely smile. A celebration of life will be held in Oakland, later this summer. Memorial donations may be sent to the Alameda County Community Food Bank ( http://www.accfb.org/ ) or Children's Fairyland ( www.fairyland.org ).
