Central Florida's Independent Jewish Voice

On Saturday, March 6, Suzie Kusnetz Bobele, loving wife and mom, passed away. She was born on April 15, 1947, in Brooklyn, New York.

Suzie "Sheindie" wanted to be remembered as a beloved wife, mother, sister and aunt. But she was much, much more. She worked on Wall St. in New York City for many years as a mutual funds administrator at a time when women didn't hold these positions. She met the love of her life at the Altamonte Publix leading to a 40-year dream marriage to Ron and raised two fantastic children, Rod and Skye.

Suzie was an accomplished 12-string and Martin guitar player. The joy of her life was as Delta Blues photographer and historian. Her photography has graced the covers of Blues albums and several international Blues concert posters. Many hotels display her works in their rooms and hallways.

She was honored to have a number of musicians select her portraits to be displayed at their funerals. Big thrill for her was meeting and spending time with numerous famous "Old Blues musicians" and sharing a drink. Her knowledge of Blues music was so extensive that she was regarded as an established historian with a blog that was viewed internationally. The University of Mississippi has requested all of her photography for their archives.

Suzie was preceded in death by Rod, her son. She is survived by her husband, Ron, and Ezah (Rod's dog). Burial will be at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery.

She will be a light in our hearts forever. May her memory be a blessing.
