GREENSBORO - Mrs. Susan Weinstein Nash, 54, of Greensboro, formerly of San Antonio, TX, died Friday, December 28, 2012.
A graveside service was held at 12 p.m., Sunday, December 30, 2012 at The Hebrew Cemetery in Greensboro.
Born in the original Wesley Long Hospital, on February 10, 1958, in Greensboro, Susan went to General Greene, Kiser, and Grimsley High School. She graduated from UNCG with a degree in food and nutrition. Upon graduation she moved to San Antonio, TX and became the Food Manager for the Jewish Home there. Susan later furthered her education to receive her teaching degree. She then began teaching 6th and 7th grade Science. Susan was an excellent teacher, always striving to really get her students interested in learning. She even used crossword puzzles to get her students motivated to think and taught right up until she felt she could no longer give it her all. Susan had five dogs. Kota, her Chocolate Lab was the only one she had schooled to become a Delta Dog, which was in essence a therapy dog that she took to nursing homes and to homes for disturbed children. Susan was the editor for The Coaster of Gulf Coast-GSMDC paper. She returned to Greensboro in 2011. Ever since Susan was a teenager, she had suffered with the disease Lupus. That illness is what finally took her life, but it never took her spirit. She was a brave, caring, and loving person who will be greatly missed. A close friend may have said it best, "Susan was a miracle". She was preceded in death by her father, Maurice M. Weinstein and her brother, Roger A. Weinstein.
Those left to cherish Susan's memory include her mother, Helene C. Weinstein; many friends and extended family.
Memorial contributions may be made to Beth David Synagogue 804 Winview Dr., Greensboro, NC 27410 or to The Lupus Foundation of America 2000 L St., NW, Suite 410, Washington, DC 20036.
