Product Components Corporation is sad to announce that our long-time owner, Susan Lenz, died on January 9, 2021 in Walnut Creek, CA, from Covid-19 complications.
Susan assumed ownership of PCC in 1983, when her mother Mildred died – and five years after the death of her father and our company’s founder, Joseph Saks. The company will now pass onto Susan’s son Scott (the one being held in the picture, 1964). Before owning PCC, Susan had a many-pronged career in social work, from counseling rape victims in Contra Costa County (CA) to working for the Mental Health Association of Prince George’s County (MD).
Susan Hope Saks was born March 31, 1943 in New York City. She was raised and attended high school in White Plains, NY. She married Edward Lenz in August, 1963 and they had two sons, Scott and Eric. After separating in 1973, Susan met Robert Boyd — and the two of them were together until the day she died. Susan is also survived by her four grandchildren: Jaron, Georgia, Sophie and Noah – along with several cousins throughout the country.
Susan will be sorely missed by her family, friends and employees.
