Mary Knight Suchower, 86, died Sunday, July 10, 2016, at Hospice Savannah. She was born and raised in Savannah, attended Savannah High School and Armstrong State College (music and art).

During her lifetime she worked as a professional secretary for several entities – for CEO of Kaiser Chemical, for English and Language Dept. Staff at ASC, for Principal Staff at SHS.
She was extraordinarily proficient in practically all arts, crafts and music, to which she dearly loved to devote her attention without ever missing opportunities to fulfill self-committed motherly and/or spousal obligations.
