PORTLAND, Ore. – Susan Krohn, 74, of Hampton Roads, Va. and Estero, Fla., having lived a vibrant and full life, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones at the Hopewell House in Portland, Ore. on Dec 29.

Susan was born on Oct. 3, 1949 to Margaret and Edwin Scott in Pine Bush, N.Y.

A voracious reader and gifted artist, Susan obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Philadelphia College of Art. She went on to rise through the ranks of the Virginian Pilot as a marketing director, and then founded her own upscale women’s consignment and retail boutique, Worth the Wait. After a successful 12-year run, Susan sold her business and retired to Florida, where she enjoyed a creative renaissance making jewelry out of vintage Mah Jongg tiles. Susan was a fixture at Mah Jongg games and tournaments, as well as bowling leagues, book clubs, foreign film clubs, art shows and operas. She was a beloved mother and wonderful host; she loved to cook, travel, make strangers laugh, and mentor young women she met throughout her life.

Susan was predeceased by her older sister Mary Rolnick and two husbands, Paul Sincoff and Rabbi Philip Krohn. She is survived by two sons, Paul Sincoff and David Krohn, as well as her granddaughter, Sydney Sincoff.

A celebration of her life was held at Congregation Brith Shalom in Houston, Texas. Susan requested donations be made to Brith Shalom.
