Susan Kaboth Grenewald

Susan Kaboth Grenewald  died peacefully in her sleep December 2017, in La Jolla, CA after a long battle with cancer.  She was 71.
Born in Tulsa, OK, in 1946, to Jane Hammett Kaboth and Jack Ware Kaboth, her family moved to Amarillo, TX in 1955, where she attended grade and middle school, graduating from Tascosa High School in 1964, and subsequently studying at Baylor University.
Her adult life was spent raising her family in Amarillo, Jacksonville, FL, Summit, NJ, Washington, DC and Chicago, Il, before retiring back to Amelia Island, FL. She was a well-known and active resident of the Amelia Park community and served as president of the home owners association. Over the years she was served her community in many volunteer positions, including the Board of Directors of Jacksonville Art Museum, Theatre Jacksonville, and the Junior League.  A world traveler, she loved theater, museums, and culinary excellence, but ballet was her great passion.   In addition to a somewhat encyclopedic knowledge of dance, she also relished her time working on staff in the development department of New York City Ballet.  A highlight was appearing with Ray Charles on stage at the New York State Theater with the entire corps de ballet.  She was a “collector” of performances of Apollo, and saw it performed by the best of the male dancers of her time.
She was a remarkable woman of grace and elegance, known always for her remarkable mind and shrewd sense of humor. She had a wide-reaching collection of devoted friends from everywhere she ever lived, and always stayed in close touch.  A seemingly effortless hostess and a wonderful cook, she cherished entertaining her family and friends.  Her stylish and charming homes, wherever she lived,  reflected her flair for interior design as well as her natural curiosity for life.
She is survived by her two daughters, Elizabeth Claire McDonough of Alexandria, VA and Megan Alice Cox of La Jolla, CA, their husbands, Bob and Tom, and three grandchildren, Vivien, Katherine and Quinn Cox.  Predeceased by her parents, she is also survived by her brother, Dennis Kaboth and his wife, Linda, of Denver, CO, two nephews and her ex-husband, William Grenewald of Aventura FL. They all thank her for her love and support, and her amazing determination and strength of character. She wil be sorely missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation in her memory to the LaJolla Garden Club or the Junior League of Jacksonville.
