In memory of
Susie Franklin
Susie Franklin December 1949 - July 2021 Carmel Valley Susie Baron Franklin, 71, of Carmel Valley died on July 5, 2021, of a heart attack while traveling with her beloved husband Charly. Susie left an enormous legacy in nonprofits and philanthropy, and as family matriarch. She left an indelible impression on everyone she encountered. Born in Los Angeles to Henry and Joan Baron, Susie was an outstanding student. She attended UC Berkeley, pledged to Alpha Epsilon Phi, and took part in some of that school's now-famous political demonstrations. After receiving her bachelor's degree, she earned a master's degree in Social Work from USC. Susie excelled in fund-raising and had a very successful career in the field, culminating in seven years as Executive Director of Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, one of the country's leading camps for children with cancer and their families. During that time she led a multi-million dollar campaign to purchase a permanent site in the San Jacinto Mountains. Susie provided guidance on many nonprofit boards including the Los Angeles Children's Museum, the Center for Early Education, and Youth Arts Collective in Monterey. Susie founded the Franklin Legacy Fund, which provides funding and technical expertise to nonprofits in the Monterey Peninsula and beyond looking to take the next step in their growth. Stories of the Fund's work and impact can be found at franklinlegacyfund.org . She was an active Carmel Valley resident for almost twenty years, including eight as a participant in the Muffins of Carmel Valley. She fund-raised and organized for local organizations and causes. She orchestrated reunions and supported family and friends in need. She hosted countless guests in her home, and spent time sharing the family legacy of stories and traditional skills like knitting with her descendants. Susie overcame significant health challenges. She was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's Disease while still in her 40s. This never stopped her from doing the things she loved, including travel, exercise, writing by hand, and even playing piano. Susie is survived by Charly; her sister Deb; her three sons, Zachary, Seth, and Judd; their wives Sofia, Kristen, and Tybe; and her grandchildren, Molly, Clara, Adena, Maccabee, and Robin. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Susie Franklin Memorial Fund at Cal State Monterey Bay, online at donate.csumb.edu or via mail to University Advancement, CSUMB, 100 Campus Center - AVC, Seaside CA 93955.
