Most of all, she enjoyed spoiling her family with parties, gifts and elaborate decorations during the holidays and on their birthdays. Christmas was a special time and Susan took great pride in decorating her home both inside and outside, including a 17-foot tree in the living room. She also cherished annual family spring vacations on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. An avid sports fan, Susan enjoyed rooting for her favorite teams, the Ohio State Buckeyes, Duke Blue Devils and Cleveland Indians, as well as her favorite athlete, Roger Federer.
