A public memorial service for Susan and her baby girls, Reyna and Lucy, was held on Monday, March 9th at 11 am at Villa Montalvo, where Susan was previously artist-in-residence at Montalvo Art Center. Guests wore bright colors in honor of Susan.  After the ceremony, guests were invited to take "A Healing Walk," one of Susan's recent installations, which was on view during the memorial. (Montalvo will be working with the county to permanently install the piece.)  


A public celebration of her life and contributions as an artist and curator was held on March 22, 2- 5pm, at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street, San Francisco.  An audio recording of the event is available below.
