Forever Friend with Susie. We always caught up for some girl time. She often spoke of her love of her children and the light of her life her grandchildren. The loss of her syblings and she grieved so to see her little sister again. A loyal fan of Jackson Browne. She was Susie homemaker with her beautiful garden and gift of a green thumb. Her house was always flawless. She was an intellectual and fascinating on most subjects. Her friendships were many and compassion born from her own experiences. I grieved with her about her passing. Love my friend.

I would like to offer my sincere sympathy to Susan's dear children, grandchildren and family. I am just shocked by the word of her passing. She and I had been close (like sisters) friends since we were around 12 years of age. I spent as much time at her house (growing up) as I did at my own. Her parents were just like my own parents, and treated me like one of their own. I loved her dearly, and will miss her. She and I hadn't seen each other in person for a while, but always communicated frequently via social media. Please know that she was loved by many. So sad! Carla Bock
