Remembering Susan Saxton

The Will Flores Fund was saddened to learn of the death of our contributing artist, Susan Saxton, on June 21, 2022.

When we met last year in September, Susan had just learned about WFF and she donated a large number of her earrings and pendants to sell at the 2021 Show. Her obituary mentions that she was “a collector and seeker– of beads to make jewelry that she generously bestowed on her friends… ,”  and The Will Flores Fund was a grateful beneficiary of her generosity.

Although she mentioned at that first meeting that she was fighting cancer, pointing to her very short haircut, she dismissed any expressions of sympathy and promised to donate her jewelry to every show to come.  Susan’s grace and spirit will be remembered.
