About fifty friends, colleagues and coworkers gathered at the Haskin Lab on June 16th to share memories of Susan Ford, her career at Rutgers, her travels around the world and her life in general. Stories ranged from how she could zero in onto the point of the matter whether at work or home, to her efforts to keep the local breweries in business with her neighbors, where she worked behind the scenes on township committees and with local environmental organizations.
All shared an appreciation for her push toward excellence, her fundamental grounding in science, and her pleasant demeanor that helped bring out the best in everyone.
Afterwards, the group travelled to the Cape Shore to celebrate Susan’s life and career, bidding her a final farewell on the tidal flats as the water rose and the sun set. Susan spent many years on those flats developing her skills, making new discoveries, sharing them with the world and training many young scientists.
