LYALL--Susan,

died peacefully at home in Bedford Hills, NY, on June 6th with her children by her side. Born on June 12th, 1935, she worked over the years as a journalist, an organic-farm owner and a garden-furniture designer. An unforgettable woman of great wit and originality whose generosity touched many lives, she loved Africa, her dogs and her grandchildren most of all. She is survived by her son, David; her daughter, Sarah; her daughter-in-law, Blanche Belliveau; her stepsons, Philip and Adrian Utsch, and nine adored grandchildren and stepgrandchildren: Louise, Charles and Adelaide Lyall; Alice and Isobel McCrum; and Josiah, Lucas, Phoenix and Wyatt Utsch. A private service of remembrance will be held July 21 in Northeast Harbor, Maine. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Lewa Nature Conservancy. http://www.lewa.org/
