Susan Taylor-Conner, 66, of Chestnut Hill, a longtime therapist and a cofounder of a counseling center in Glenside, died Thursday, Oct. 31, at her home from lung and brain cancer.
Mrs. Taylor-Conner worked at several agencies before joining Roy Shirley to establish Cornerstone Center for Change in 1987. She led retreat groups with a focus on finding meaning in later life, said her son, Matthew Taylor.
Mrs. Taylor-Conner was born Susan Stryker Dunn in White Plains, N.Y., the youngest of three children.
She was raised on Manhattan's Upper East Side and graduated from the Nightingale-Bamford School. She graduated from Wheelock College in Boston in 1969, and in 1980 received a master's in counseling from Philadelphia's Antioch College.
