Sylvia “Suzy” hahn of Chal­font passed away peace­fully Satur­day, June 22, 2013, at Abing­ton Health Lans­dale Hos­pi­tal sur­rounded by her loving fam­ily.

She was the beloved wife of the late de­orge hahn.

Born in Philadel­phia, Sylvia Su­san Lane was the daugh­ter of the late Isadore and Anna Lane and sis­ter of the late Carl Lane.

She grad­u­ated from West Philadel­phia High School. Suzy owned and op­er­ated Suzy’s Lounge for over 40 years. A true en­tre­pre­neur and al­ways seek­ing a new ven­ture, Suzy also owned sev­eral other busi­nesses dur­ing her life­time, in­clud­ing Ne­shaminy (War­ring­ton) Lum­ber in War­ring­ton; the Maples Bar and drill in Hor­sham; two ho­tels in trendy South Beach, Fla.; and a mo­tel in Deer­field Beach, Fla.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­woman, Suzy en­joyed a pro­fes­sional singing ca­reer. As a high school se­nior, she won a singing con­test spon­sored by WDAS ra­dio in Philadel­phia, award­ing her with her own sum­mer ra­dio show, “The Melody Mati­nee, fea­tur­ing Sue Lane.” Suzy later re­ceived a schol­ar­ship to the pres­ti­gious Set­tle­ment Mu­sic School in Philadel­phia, where she stud­ied opera and pi­ano. She then had the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend the world renowned Cur­tis In­sti­tute. She went on to per­form in some of the most ex­clu­sive ho­tels and night clubs in Mi­ami Beach, Fla.

Suzy loved to en­ter­tain friends and fam­ily. Peo­ple ad­mired her tal­ent and en­joyed her beau­ti­ful voice, of­ten re­quest­ing her to per­form at their cel­e­bra­tions.

Suzy’s pas­sion for mu­sic com­bined with her dy­namic per­son­al­ity in­spired what would be her most grat­i­fy­ing ca­reer; teach­ing pi­ano and voice to chil­dren of all ages. She loved help­ing young peo­ple re­al­ize their dreams and po­ten­tial.

Suzy gave of her­self with­out hes­i­ta­tion. She was a leader, an in­no­va­tor, a truly lib­er­ated woman, and a shin­ing ex­am­ple of liv­ing life on your own terms. Her legacy will live on.
