Condolence From: Debbie Kestenberg, Eva Kestenberg
Condolence: In memory of Susie, we watched a Stratford production of The Mikado by Gilbert & Sullivan. Susie had performed in amateur productions in New York, and we thought of her throughout. We miss her.
Condolence: Susie will be always be remembered for her kindness and care for others, her passion for music and dance, and many visits to us in Toronto with Johnny.
Susie had a very long list of birthday and anniversary cards sent annually and phones calls made to celebrate and to console.
Having a far better memory, she served as an endless source of information to my mom Eva, her oldest and dearest friend, on shared experiences with Kindertransport and their years with Dr. & Mrs. Stone in Northampton, England. She had sadly suffered the loss of her entire family in WWII at the hands of the Germans. RIP, Susie.
Condolence: It was with great sadness that I heard of the passing of Susie. Susie and my mother were best friends in Germany through to now. They experienced the Kinder Transport together and then moved on to living full lives as one left for the U.S. and the other for Canada.
We visited with Susie and Johnny almost every year over the past 60 or so years.
