Susan Gelarden, who with her husband Joe, helped lead the revitalization of our neighborhood in the late 1970s and early 1980s, has died. She was 80 and had moved with Joe to her native Maine in 2004.
In the late 1970s they fell in love with 1325 N. New Jersey Street and restored it with great care. There may be ONS friends who remember the Gelardens and may find the story of her life and legacy meaningful. The obit mentions ONS and that lovely house. Susan Gelarden.
