Suzanne Alele ’85

Published in Oct.24, 1990, issue

OUR CLASSMATE Suzanne died on June 23, 1990, at the National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C., after a courageous fight with cancer.

Suzanne was born in Nigeria, and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, where she was an accomplished athlete. She moved to Washington, D.C. as a teenager, and attended Walterjohnson High School, where she was a member of the track and swimming teams.

After graduation, Suzanne received her M.B.A. from the Univ. of Maryland, and worked as a computer specialist for the Federal Reserve.

Suzy was a free spirit at Princeton. She excelled as a biology major, managed the lightweight football team, ran track, saved people at the information center from computer center catastrophes, and was a member of Cap and Gown, the Third World Center, and the International Center.

The Class extends its sincere condolences to her father, Dr. Christopher Alele; her brother, Peter Alele, and all of her family and friends who loved her and benefited from her wondrous presence. We salute a remarkable member and friend.

When I heard about Susan's passing 20 years ago, it left a hole in my heart. I barely spoke to her but admired her from afar. She was generous with her smiles and gazelle-like in her movements. I wish I hadn't been so shy and I wish that I had walked up to her and let her know how great she was. I am not a religious person, but I can't understand how such a wonderful person was placed in our midst only to be taken away so soon.
