Susan Flemming Marx

I was wanting some background information on the Marxes. Was Susan Flemming much younger than Harpo? I noticed she died almost 40 years after her husband and I thought since Harpo was what about 75 at the time of his death it would put Susan over 100?

I love this tribute page! It's one of the best I've seen.

thank you,

Hello Deirdre,

I am so glad you are enjoying the Harpo Tribute Site!
Harpo was 20 years older than Susan, if I'm not mistaken. He was born in 1888 and I believe she was born in 1908.

Honk Honk,


Re: Re: Susan Flemming Marx

Cathy is correct. Susan Flemming was 20 yrs. younger than Harpo. Her parents were Welsh and she's origionaly from Long Island, NY> In fact, in the early 20th century, her family spent many a summer out on the North fork of Long Island in a home in Greenport. How do I know? She told me. She spent her last 15 yrs. in a condo complex in Palm Springs. She had memory loss and would repeat herself after 5-10 minutes or so. Her exact words to me were: "I know I must be repeating myself. My brain just can't hold all of the information that a woman my age has aquired....that's my theory....ha,ha,ha,!"

Hello Robert-
Just read your old message. Were you a neighbor of Susan Marx? I knew her quite well, and stayed at 37-631 Palm View Road back in 1997.
