So sorry to hear of Susan’s passing. We had the pleasure of meeting Susan about 8 years ago when she became a regular customer of our Jewelry Store. She would come in and spend hours talking, telling stories of her life and give tips on how to make my job easier! I do use one of her tips daily and think of her often.
May all the memories of Susan Be for a blessing always.

When I was a child and teenager, I was blessed to sit one row behind Susan's husband, Manfred Kaufman, at Beth Tfiloh shul every Shabbat. He was such a wonderful, warm, and giving man. He and Susan were so dedicated to one another, to Beth Tfiloh, and to the entire Jewish community. They both always took an active interest in my life, encouraging and praising me when I led services at Beth Tfiloh in the summer or had a role in a Beth Tfiloh school event. After her husband's tragic passing, Susan continued to express her interest. Whenever I graduated from any program: high school, college etc., Susan made a generous contribution to Beth Tfiloh in my honor. I remember that for my last graduation, she dedicated a volume of the Schottenstein Talmud to Beth Tfiloh. She then called my mother and told her how proud she was of me. I cherish the memory of sitting with Susan on a bus trip to a rally for Soviet Jewry in the spring of 1990. Having funded the education of some of the students, she joined our class for this event. Rescuing Soviet Jews and then providing them with their physical and spiritual needs was the her and Manfred's mission, which she carried on for years after his death. And she did all this and expressed all of this concern despite her loss of her Manfred and of her mother and her constant chronic pain. I am saddened by her loss but comforted that her pain has ended and that she is reunited with her parents and her beloved Manfred--who matched her in kindness and generosity of spirit. May she rest in peace.

I thank God for giving me an opportunity to meet Susan. I met Susan in 2015 and we became good friends. As part of Marsha's extended family her blessings extended to me and my family. I will always cherish you Susan for being such a wonderful person and I will miss you dearly. We will never forget your kindness. I will miss hearing you telling me "you haven't the faintest idea"❤

It was with deep sorrow that I learnt of Susan’s passing.
I remember meeting her for the first time in 2015 and we instantly become good friends..She was filled with empathy,love, kindness and humor...she got me hooked on ‘The Stephen Colbert Show’,and her love for clouds and been outdoors just amazed me, her tales from her childhood showcased a deep sense of a sharp memory. One thing I admired about her was her math skills she’d sum up things at the top of her head(math genius)..
She would always say a blessing upon my life whenever I travelled and
challenged me to pursue my masters and make the best out of it.. I will forever cherish the memories we shared and the warm hugs!
Dearly beloved Susan Kauffman you’ll forever be in our hearts ❤️

The day I met Susan is a perpetual new meeting, that the Susan I met summer 2016 wasn't the same Susan I met with her amazing stories, her hilarious personality, and her big heart. However, the moment I realized she was more than all that was when I walked her down the stairs on her routine walk to the dinner table one last time before leaving for work, not realizing it would be my last time with her. I had expressed that after only a month of being away from her, that I truly have gotten used to her, and who she has been for my family and for myself. She is family, and will always hold a place in our hearts as someone who's loved big and gave it generously. Thank you Susan for chosing Auntie Marsha when you did that you could join our family and provide us with rich culture and personality we never knew we were missing. Your compassionate ear for listening and wise words from your life will carry on with me and all you have touched. You are blessed and a blessing to us all.

If I could write about Susan, I would write an entire book. One thing I know for sure is that Susan’s love had no boundaries. She loved everyone across every race, tribe, culture, and nationality. After knowing and taking care of Susan for over 9 years, she quickly became like my mom. Although she was not always an easy person to deal with, the more I got to know her, the more I became patient with her and understood what a special person she is. I have never met anyone quite like Susan who is so loving, generous, and kind. Susan was one in a billion. She became a great blessing not only to me but to my entire family, friends, and even strangers. Susan had an incredible personality. She loved children so much, always had fascinating stories about her life, and an amazing sense of humor. Susan had many sayings we know her by. She used to like saying “You’ve got to be patient or you’ll become a patient.” Even more, she was extraordinarily smart, sharp, and had a photographic memory. Susan also loved shopping so much, she could buy the entire store.

I would now like to give a special thank you to the special people that impacted Susan’s life:

Dr. Leah Millstein (primary doctor)
-I have never seen a remarkable, educated, nice, young doctor, who has immense patience and was extremely kind to Susan like Dr. Leah Millstein.

Dr. Fink(Kidney specialist), Dr. Kim, Dr. Marco Pappagallo, Dr. Jenkins.

The University of Maryland Staff and Faculty: Vickie Fisher, Devin, Ms. Rose, Wendy, Mr.Dave

I would like to also thank the pharmacists at giant and head pharmacists Cathy, Leslie, Ms. Rose, John, and many others whose names I cannot remember but are greatly appreciated. I would like to thank the technicians who worked very hard for Susan. Whenever Susan went to collect her medicine each one had to be counted in her sight.

Susan’s health was not good, to say the least. In fact, it was deteriorating by the day after the go lightly medicine she began taking in 2019. I have not even believed she is gone. Susan was loved by so many. To describe the sorrow I feel at this moment would be nearly impossible. She is going to be in my heart forever and ever and I will truly miss her. R.I.P Mommy.

Susan was a very beautiful, strong, very generous, humorous and intelligent woman. She was priceless and was full of love, no words can express my bond and time spent with Susan. Susan and I were best friends despite of our age gap. Susan shared with me too many memories of her child and adult hood, stories that I will live to treasure. Their are so many things that one can say about Susan, many enough to write endless series of books. Susan was priceless and she taught me what it means to have a generous heart. You will always be loved and part of our family, my dear Susan, my best friend and my love. It may take long for all of us to process everything that’s happened, but God is our strength, and for sure he is closed to the broken hearted and comforts those who mourn. All your memories will be treasured in our hearts. “Don’t do what I wouldn’t do” I’ll keep this in mind Susan (Susan loved saying this). Rest In Peace now you accomplished what God brought you for and we will respect that.

Susan, we love so much but God loved you more. We will forever miss you and forever you will be in our hearts. Thankyou personally for impacting my life in every way and nobody will fill the gap you left only God can do that. I leave everyone with a verse that says Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God, believe also I’m Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if we’re not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself: that where I am, there you may be also.And where I go you know, and the way you know.

26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee and give thee peace.

A prayer to our Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You to our Beloved Yeshua for blessing us with the beautiful gift of Susan. She was a tremendous blessing to countless faces, known and unknown. It is true what You promised us in the Word that all the families of the earth would be blessed through the seed of Abraham. We shall never forget all she did for us. We are grateful for all the blessings. May her soul rest in peace. In the Name of Jesus. Amen

DEAR SUSAN, SO SORRY TO HEAR OF YOUR PASSING. WE HAVEN'T SEEN EACH OTHER IN SEVERAL YEARS BUT WE HAD QUITE A FEW FUN CONVERSATIONS IN THE PAST. OUR MOTHERS WERE "FRIENDSHIP SISTERS" MEMBERS AND WERE VERY FRIENDLY. SO THROUGH THEIR FRIENDSHIP WE FINALLY MET. I WAS YOUR AND YOUR MOM'S HAIRDRESSER FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. WE BROUGHT UP ALL THE STORIES OUR LATE MOMS WOULD SHARE AND LAUGH OUR HEADS OFF. IN THE BEGINING, YOU WERE SO TERRIBLY SERIOUS BUT I GOT TO YOU AND WE HAD A BALL LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY THROUGH YOUR HAIR APPOINTMENTS. TIME HAS GONE BY AND I AM SORRY WE HAVEN'T KEPT CLOSE BUT I AM NOW WISHING YOU A BEAUTIFUL REUNION WITH YOUR PARENTS AND YOUR SISTER. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.

I am heartbroken. 8 years ago I was asked to take Ms. Kaufmann on as a Pt. I am a Medical Secretary for her doctors office. I have help Ms. Kaufmann with making appts, getting her medications taken care of and just being there when she wanted to talk. When my dad was in the hospital, Ms. Kaufmann brought me flowers to give him and she gave me a Mini Palm tree. She didn't know my dad, but she knew I was hurting. She had a kind soul that not many people knew about, I was lucky to know that side of her. She always asked me about my children, grandchildren. She wanted to see pictures of my wedding. She became more then just a Patient to me. She will always hold a place in my heart. Rest in peace Ms. Kaufmann. I will truly miss you.

Susan and her beloved Manfred performed chesed of the highest degree. They encouraged the children of Russian immigrants , in the late 1970s, to send their children to Beth Tfiloh Day School. They helped kids have Bar Mitzvah celebrations. They were persistent in what they pursued. Having no children of their own, they cared for others and wanted them to know about Judaism and their heritage. May her memory be for a blessing.

Susan and I grew up together on the same street in Baltimore City. My relatives lived across the street from us as Susan's cousins, aunt and uncle lived on the same street next door to my aunt and uncle. We had a great time playing outside in those days. I ran into Susan often when my children went to Beth Tfiloh Day School. Lost track of Susan after that. Somehow I was shocked to read that she now passed away. May she now rest in peace with her beloved Manfred, parents, and sister.
