SUZANNE SCHEIRER TELLER

Born St. Louis, MO in 1926. From 1947 to 1958 Suzanne worked at MGM studios where she was secretary to designer Helen Rose. These were exciting times where she worked with many Hollywood stars.

In 1960 Suzanne worked in Tahiti for the filming of “Mutiny on the Bounty”. One of her favorite stories detailed kicking a young and handsome Marlon Brando out of her hotel room!

Suzanne was a member of PEO and Church of Christ Scientist. For twenty years she was an ardent supporter of the anti rail movement and friend to everyone at honolulutraffic.com.

Suzanne had a great zest for life and will be sorely missed.
