Susan, you were the best big sister that an annoying little brother could ever have! You were the best daughter that parents could have and proved it by looking after mom and dad so well in the twilight of their lives. You put others first, including your wonderful husband Tom. You were a wonderful mother to your children and they are a living testament to your love bestowed upon them.
I think that adds up to a life honourably and successfully lived! You have earned your rest!
We will miss you every day!💕

Susan was very special person. She made me so happy being my wife of 21 years. Susan taught me a lot throughout the years. She made me stronger and made me see the good in people. She will always be in my heart. Love you Calvin.

Your husband

While distance separated us in miles, I will always remember Sue’s infectious laugh. She would burst out laughing during a phone conversation or in person and I would just want to laugh with her. Such a beautiful smile she had as well. Rest In Peace, Sue!
