Susan lived her life for her Lord and Savior. She was a very loving Mother and Grandmother. Though she was considered to be legally blind, her love for Jesus and wanting to share his ministries led her to helping others. She always put the needs of others before her own. Family was very important to her and spending time with them, especially her grandchildren, whom she adored, was a top priority. Her beautiful smile and love for laughter is just one of the many things we will remember and miss forever!
