Susan was a devout Christian and loved the Lord. She was a loving and supportive mother and grandmother. To her…. family was everything. She spent a lot of time with her grandchildren, who she loved dearly. Susan was a fabulous cook and passed on her talent and love for cooking to her son and daughter. One of her specialties enjoyed by her children, grandchildren, other family members and friends were the artistic cakes and deserts that she created through the years. Her banana pudding was a family favorite enjoyed by all. Over the years she enjoyed gardening, reading, gathering recipes and collecting rare dolls. Hallmark movies were a favorite. And yes, it is hard to believe but Susan loved to wash dishes!!

Finally, no matter the situation she made sure that her hair was always styled and rarely missed her weekly appointments!! Susan was well respected and loved by all those she met and was truly a wonderful person.
