Our Sincerest Condolences: Herman, Susan

It is with deep regret that we inform you that Susan Herman passed away on Friday, October 14, 2016 at home in Chicago after a heroic 14-year battle with cancer.

She was the daughter of Benjamin and Ethel Mitchell and was born in New York City.

Yet she was known quite independently for her role in the community, promoting the Women's Resource Center and the arts, being a moving force in the creation of 40 North. She and her husband were frequently seen at KCPA and KAM and other venues, sharing a joy of the arts and promoting the idea of the public good.

She will be remembered for pride in, and devotion to, her family, her passionate joy of life and bringing that to those around her.

Donations in Susan's name can be made to support Anshe Emet Synagogue, 3751 N Broadway Street, Chicago, Illinois 60613, the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund c/o Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, 420 E.
