Susan Lee (Szekely) Oft  

Feb. 8, 1950 ~ Jan. 25, 2019

Teacher, farmer, artist, mentor, librarian, rancher, gardener. Loving wife, sister and Auntie; lover of dogs, cats, calves, basketball, tennis and antiques. Our Susie was all of these and so much more. Although she lost her hard-fought battle with cancer on January 25, it was one she took on with unwavering graciousness. Her spirit remains with us and always will.

Susie was born to Gene and Lena (Schneider) Szekely on February 8, 1950, in Portland, Oregon. She was raised in a loving Catholic home and attended Holy Family Grade School and Marycrest High School. Then it was on to Portland State College and a degree in elementary education. Her first teaching job was at Lynch Terrace Grade School in Portland . . .
