Susan Frank Lippard

LIPPARD: Susan Frank Lippard, 77, of Point Breeze, on Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021. Beloved wife of Thomas Lippard; loving mother of Gregory (Ninka), Adam (Michael), Jed (Todd); grandmother of Max, Bryce, Owen, Abraham, and Ari; daughter of the late James A. and Ruth O. Frank; sister of James, Linda, and William. Married happily to Tom for 55 years, Susie lived life to the fullest, playing by her own rules, forging her own path, and dedicating herself unconditionally to the care of those she loved. A 1962 graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School in Squirrel Hill, Susie never professed a knack for formal schooling; in fact, her true genius was self-taught. Whether curating her magazine-worthy backyard garden, whipping up gourmet home-cooked meals, planning epic family vacations, learning to transcribe Braille for the Greater Pittsburgh blind population, volunteering as the “Plant Lady” at the East End Co-Op, or taking up and ultimately excelling at golf in her 40s, Susie was a winner at life. An ardent adventurer and cheerleader, she derived her greatest pleasure from being with and enhancing the lives of her children and grandchildren. In fact, in recent days, countless loved ones have referred to Susie as a “second mom,” indeed her first calling. Despite contending with cancer for 32 years, she persevered without complaint and demonstrated an indefatigable zest for life until the very end. Services were held at Rodef Shalom Congregation. Interment West View Cemetery of Rodef Shalom Congregation. Contributions can be made in her honor to UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, 5115 Centre Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15232, the National Aviary, 700 Arch Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212, or any other charity of a donor’s choice. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc. schugar.com PJC
