Susan was known for her love for lighthouses and lived a life of service. She was a Cub Scout Master but her most cherished roles were mother and grandmother. Susan loved spending time with her family and was mom to all her children’s friends who called her "Ma Sue".  She loved to travel and lived in many states. Susan was an avid photographer and captured her adventures through her photographs.

Susan's family was everything to her. She documented the many family gatherings with her pictures. Those pictures now offer sweet memories to her family. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  We will always love and miss you mom.
