Susan Smith

SMITH, Susan Lee, age 72 of Eugene, Oregon, passed away on Sunday, December 11, 2016. She was born October 29, 1944 in Oakland, California to Russell and Lucille Smith. She was a graduate of Pacific High School in San Leandro. Susan retired from Xerox Corporation before spending many years as an instructional assistant for developmentally disabled children in local school districts. Once fully retired, Susan became an artist in many realms, including painting, glass, jewelry making and more. Art became her passion. Susan cherished her family, especially her nieces. She loved her animal family, taking her beloved Oscar to the San Leandro Marina for sunsets and snacks. She was a lifelong active member of All Saint’s Episcopal Church in San Leandro before moving to Eugene, Oregon to be near her brother, Tom Smith, his wife, Stephanie, and their daughter, Sydney. Susan made friends easily with her disarming smile and ability to strike up a conversation with anyone. She is deeply missed by many. Susan is survived by her brother, Thomas (Stephanie); her cousin, Jim (Joyce); nieces, Stephanie (Jory), Michelle (Adam) and Sydney; great-niece, Emmalena; and cousins, Joey (son Cory) and Christine Smith. Her memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 26, at 2 p.m. at All Saint’s Episcopal Church, 911 Dowling Blvd., in San Leandro.
