Aug. 4, 1948 - May 31, 2013
Susan Strauss passed away after a short illness in the Carson-Tahoe Hospital.
Susan was born in Woodside Queens, NY, and she moved to Carson City NV with her husband in 1984. At that time she leveraged her previous experience as a para-legal and accepted a position in Carson as a Court Service Analyst. During her 13 year tenure in the Carson Court System she supported many of the Judges in the State Legislature. She developed a program for Native American Indians that enhanced the relationship between the tribes and the police with a special focus on battered women. She was honored by both organizations once the program was implemented.
Susan is survived by her husband, Augie; her brother, John and sister, Lynn; along with her two children, Jennifer and Daniel. She was also the proud grandmother of Gerrett, Sophia, and Kaitlin.
She will be remembered by us all as a loving mother, grandmother and sister.
