Arts and crafts were her passion, as witnessed through her paintings and portraits. Scrapbooking was also one of her hobbies that she loved.
Those who knew Susan will remember her for her caring heart and sweet nature. She loved her family, and absolutely adored her grandchildren.
A very selfless woman, she spent the last few years taking care of Markey. Although she will be missed dearly by her family and friends, they find some comfort in knowing she has been reunited with her loved ones in Heaven.
