Delitch was know for his jealousy and before long, Susanna grew impatient with him and suggested that since they could not 'get along,' he go on a long ocean voyage. She told him by the time he returned the legal matters of the divorce would be resolved. She went to Nevada and on Nov 2, 1932 filed for divorce.
She was at lunch with her niece at a prominent Los Angeles hotel when she received a note. She read the note and quietly tucked it into her pocket book. The note said that Delitch was dead and had hanged himself on board the ship and was to be buried at sea. Without any concern, she continued her luncheon and conversation with her niece. That makes three husbands dead and her name just keeps getting longer...Susanna Bransford Emery Holmes Delitch.
