Obituary: Susan Levy Eberhart 1946-2011

Sunday, July 31, 2011

A memorial service will be held in Chapman Hall, Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church, Edmonds WA 98026 at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 6, 2011 for Susan Levy Eberhart of Shoreline. All who knew Susan are invited to attend.

Susan was born on July 6, 1946 in Seattle, Washington. She passed away on July 30, 2011 after a courageous nine year struggle with colon cancer. Susan was proud to be a third-generation Seattle native. She was the oldest of three siblings born to Edward and Betty Wile Levy. Mark Philip Levy and Paul Laurence Levy were her brothers.

Susan attended Seattle Public Schools and graduated from the University of Washington. She spent the next 36 years giving back to the district by teaching children at Kimball, McGilvra and Coe Elementary Schools. She loved the difference she made in an early learner’s life and was thrilled by the progress made over the course of a year in her classroom.

In 1967, Susan married Nicholas Aldrich, and together they had many children; one of their own and several adopted. After their divorce in 1989, she met and married fellow congregant at Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church, Roger Eberhart, in 1992. Together they served their beloved church in a multitude of ways, and together they enjoyed time together anywhere and anytime, but most especially on road trips traveling the blue highways of America.

Susan is predeceased by her parents and her brother Paul. She is survived by her husband, Roger, her brother, Mark and his wife Marcia Sohns of Seattle, David Aldrich of Bothell; Julie Miles and her daughters Veronica and Haylee of Helena, Montana; Nika Aldrich and his son, Avery of New York City; Kate Josee and her husband, Sanjay, of Everett; step-daughter, Sarah Eberhart of Bellingham; and a niece, Lauren Levy, of Seattle and nephew, Kyle Levy of Fremont, California.

Susan’s life was rich with relationships. She leaves behind a grand circle of loving friends for whom she was a source of inspiration and a model of grace and dignity.

The family wishes to thank Group Health for its many years of compassionate care.
