Obituary for Susan Ellen Sobel


Susan Ellen Sobel was born August 6, 1943, and passed away in her Seacrest Home in Encinitas on February 27, 2019. She was a young 75 who loved life fiercely in spite of her many illnesses. If she knew and loved you, she would do anything to make your life better. Born and raised in New York, she had three children. She moved to Arizona in 1972 to raise her family. Tragedy took her son, Adam, in 2001 and her life was forever changed. Susan moved to California to join the Seacrest Family in 2011. It was the hardest decision and one that took many years to make as she was leaving her son, Craig, and daughter-in-law, Donna. Susan made the move to be near her grandchildren, Talia and Jacob, and daughter, Robin, and son-in-law, Ron.
Susan was a determined woman. She fought many diseases but always with a smile. Her Judaism and connection to G-d carried her. Her greatest passion was making jewelry. She was beyond creative and her jewelry beautiful. Her joy was to make jewelry to give to friends and to send packages to the battered women’s shelter. Though Parkinson’s made that difficult at times, she never gave up.
Almost two years ago, she met the love of her life, Dr. Larry Krause. He changed her world and showed her a life and love that she never knew.
Her death was untimely, but the lessons of love, laughter, kindness and pure honesty will teach her children and grandchildren well.
She is survived by her daughter Robin (Ron) son Craig (Donna) grandchildren Talia and Jacob, brother Stephen Sobel and the love of her life Dr. Larry Krause whose sons Jason (Sarah) and Leonard became her family.
Susan was the kindest soul. If you knew her, you know this to be true.
