Remembering Reva “Susie” Ruth Press, Class of ’49

My cousin Susie was a beautiful, bright, feisty woman, who overcame life’s exigencies with grace, humor, and –ultimately – outstanding success. A Philosophy major at Bryn Mawr, Susie was a single mother with three children when she entered the commercial work force by way of the per- sonnel department in a N.Y.C. department store. From there, slowly but steadil , she rose to become a global marketing director, providing future financial software systems to the international banking industry.

She was living an active life in NYC, retired, and a grandmother of six, when her life was brought to a sudden end. She is and will be sorely missed.
