Canandaigua, NY

Canandaigua - Susan Haller, age 70, passed away February 16, 2024. She is survived by her husband, Timothy Fossum; her brother and sister-in-law, Timothy Haller and Cynthia Haller; her niece, Jessica Haller; and many, many dear friends and colleagues.Susan was the daughter of Edward and Margaret (Gardiner) Haller and grew up in East Aurora, New York. She graduated from Cornell University with a BS in Statistics and Biometry (1976) and a Master of Arts in Teaching (1977).Susan then taught secondary school mathematics in Spencerport and Iroquois (NY) schools before taking an appointment in the math department at Erie Community College (ECC, Orchard Park campus) in 1981. While at ECC, she started to take graduate courses part-time at the University at Buffalo (UB). She was awarded an MBA from UB in 1984. She also took computer science (CS) courses at UB, where she received her Master of Science in CS in 1988. Her strong performance and interest in CS led her faculty mentors and peers to encourage her to pursue her doctorate in CS. She was awarded her CS PhD in 1995.In August 1994, Susan was appointed to a full-time faculty position at the University of Wisconsin--Parkside (UWP) in Kenosha, Wisconsin. There she met Timothy Fossum, also a CS faculty member at UWP. Susan and Tim quickly became friends and partners; they were married in August 1995 in a simple civil ceremony in East Aurora attended by her brother and mother. Susan was awarded tenure at UWP in 1999. She and Tim left UWP together in 2005 to take parallel tenured appointments in CS at SUNY Potsdam in Potsdam, New York. Susan's mother, Margaret Haller, moved to Potsdam to be with them in 2006, where she lived until her death in 2008.Susan and Tim retired together from SUNY Potsdam in 2016 with Professor Emeriti designations. They chose Canandaigua, NY, as their retirement destination, in part because of their growing interest in sailing. To keep busy during the non-sailing months, they both took on part-time appointments in the CS program at Rochester Institute of Technology until 2022, teaching remotely (and together) from home during two years of the COVID-19 outbreak.Susan's scholarly and professional works include nine refereed journal articles, two book chapters, 26 refereed conference papers, and miscellaneous posters, panels, special sessions, and workshops.Susan was an exceptionally accomplished gardener. Her annual and perennial plantings in East Aurora, Kenosha, Potsdam, and finally Canandaigua -- which she tended to with loving care -- always drew the open admiration of passers-by. She was also an avid hiker and traveler. Susan and Tim hiked together at various times on the trails and in the hills and mountains of France, Italy, Spain, England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Estonia, Russia, South Africa, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, as well as countless locations (including National Parks) in the US. They had envisioned future trips together to the three continents not yet visited, but sadly these were not to be realized.Susan's fierce advocacy for improving the educational opportunities of women in computer science left a lasting impression on her students. She was a principal investigator on federally funded grants that developed a female-friendly CS lab environment at UWP and that offered scholarship support for students transferring from community colleges into the CS Bachelors' degree program at SUNY Potsdam. She was admired by college administrators who recognized the tireless devotion Susan had for helping her students achieve success professionally and personally.Susan was also the loving “mom” to the several rescue dogs and cats whose lives intertwined with hers and Tim's over the years. She volunteered at the Potsdam Humane Society, and she made contributions to many rescue organizations for abandoned horses and other animals. She was particularly interested in helping to fight the cruel conditions suffered by pets in recent war zones such as Ukraine and Gaza.Susan's family and friends plan a springtime Celebration of Life for Susan at the Canandaigua Yacht Club, where she and Tim were members. Memorial contributions may be made in Susan's name to the Humane Society of the United States, 1255 23rd Street, NW, Suite 450, Washington, DC 20037.
