In Memoriam: Susan Brown-Leger


The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution announces with great sorrow the death of retiree Susan Brown-Leger on February 28. Susan passed away peacefully in her sun-filled bedroom with her husband, Ed, and two close friends at her side. She was 65.

Susan began her career at WHOI in 1976 as a research assistant II in the Biology Department.  In 1996, she transferred to the Chemistry Department and became a research assistant III.  In 2005, she transferred to the G&G Department and was promoted to a senior research assistant I.  She retired in 2011.

Susan valued her friendships and the support she received throughout the years.

Should you wish to make a donation in Susan's memory, you can donate to the Golden Retriever medical research or Norwich Terrier medical research.

At Susan's request, there will be no services.
