Vero Beach, FL: Susan Mary Cort McHugh, died at her home in Vero Beach on December 5, 2013. She was born in Yorkshire, England, attended Ackworth School and worked for Elizabeth Arden in London. On February 22, 1958, she married Dr. William D McHugh and they lived in London and Birmingham, England, and Dundee, Scotland, before immigrating to Rochester, New York in 1970. Susan is survived by: two children, Moira A. Douglas of Lake Worth, Florida and Alan N.C. McHugh (Jeanne Heffernan) of Tuxedo Park, New York; two grandchildren, David W. Douglas and Cordelia E. McHugh; her husband; her sister Margaret R. Rothchild (Eric) of Seattle, Washington; and her brother Geoffrey M. Court (Jean) of Kent, England.

Susan was a caring mother, as well as a lively elegant lady. She was very active in philanthropy, in Rochester, where she was a Board member and President of the Council of the George Eastman House and International Museum of Photography, along with many other charitable causes. Susan enjoyed playing tennis, golf and bridge, and especially, entertaining which she did superbly well.
