My memory of Susan goes all the way back to she and I going to grammar school at Episcopal Day School! Then both of us going to Gadsden High School class of 1969. I remember Susan always having a smile and a kind word to say.
Susan you will never be forgotten!

I’ve known of SUSAN for a couple of decades through education. Then we both served together with Etowah Education Retirees Association where she was an active member serving on the Scholarship Committee. I also had the pleasure of socially going out with SUSAN and friends several times. SUSAN was always gracious and smiling. I loved to see her dance and enjoy life.she will be missed by so many. One thing I know: Susan enjoyed life and loved people. I am praying for all who knew and loved SUSAN.
