Suzanne K. Devorsetz

Suzanne K. Devorsetz (“Zsuzsi”) was born in Budapest in 1939. She was a “hidden child”
during the Holocaust in Hungary. Her immediate family miraculously survived the war,
escaped Communism in 1948, eventually resettling in Munich, Germany.

Suzanne studied and spoke six languages, was hired by Lufthansa and then by El Al
Airlines as an interpreter-hostess, and was transferred by El Al to JFK.

Suzanne met Sid, her husband of 59 years, moved to Syracuse and raised three sons,
Marc, Andy, and Cary.

She founded Advantage Travel of CNY, Inc. which represented scores of colleges
and universities in their international travel semester-abroad programs.

Suzanne particularly enjoyed her work, theater, dance, tennis and skiing, and was
profoundly devoted to her family, friends, and her faith. Suzanne was a very private
person; those who were fortunate to know her enjoyed her continental charm, grace,
hospitality, and wisdom.

She is survived by her husband, sons, daughter-in-law, and four grandchildren. .

Funeral services and burial in Frumah Packard Cemetery are private. There will be no Shiva.

Dear Sid, Marc, Andy & Cary My connection with all of you go back to Sumner School - our early elementary school. It's an absolute joy for me to be able to say "yes, I knew Suzanne." She entrusted me with the care of her boys, and therefore with another generation that she loved very, very much. She was a remarkable lady who helped me through enormously difficult times. I send you all my most heart felt sympathies. I am greatly saddened.
