About this Article
Suzy Yehl Marta, the founder of Rainbows for All Children, whose mission 30 years ago to help children struggling with divorce or the death of a parent grew into a worldwide movement, died Sunday from pancreatic cancer. "Suzy's life work was helping families as they faced some of their toughest challenges, such as death of a parent, divorce or deployment," said David Christian II, Rainbows' governing board chair.
