    I knew Susan since Junior High School. She was and is the Cutest, Sweetest person I have ever known. I will never forget her beautiful smile and the twinkle in her eye. She was so friendly and kind to others. She always greeted people with that smile and positive words to make you feel good about yourself. Even though we lived miles apart since High School, I know she had a full life. She touched many people through her service to others and made their lives better. She was a great Wife, Mother and Grandmother and will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.

    Pat and I were so sad to hear the news of Susan’s passing. The LaGrange High Class of ’69 will miss her dearly. Her beautiful smile and personality to match will never be forgotten.
