Susan was born in Baltimore, Maryland, the second daughter to Frances Arlene Freeburger and Norman Elmer “Curley” Freeburger.

She is grandmother of 4, Halie, Cierra, Reagan and Riley. She met the love of her life in 2012, Robert P. Harvey, M.D. They married on the beach of Chesapeake Bay July 4, 2014. Together they enjoyed biking, kayaking and just being together. In 2017 she was diagnosed with lung cancer and had her right lung removed. The cancer never re-appeared but complications from the surgery placed her in the hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia where much of that time was spent on a ventilator. After a miraculous recovery, she returned home in March, 2020. She then had a wonderful year with her husband even though they were under strict covid isolation. On February 9th she experienced a myocardial infarction which in hours proved fatal.
Susan was special, unique, irreplaceable, beautiful and one of God’s special people. She is loved dearly by her husband and family who will ever love and miss her.

My favorite memory with Susan is when we went to her and grandpas apartment and we spent the whole day playing in the pool and Susan always made sure there were good snacks and toys to play with. After a long day of playing she wanted me and my siblings to spend the night. We were spending the night there and Susan pulls out ingredients for sugar cookies , and ritz crackers with peanut butter covered in bark chocolate. I will always be reminded of Susan when we eat those and we even have it written down in our recipe book as “Susan’s sugar cookies”. After we made The cookies we spent the rest of the night watching the life of pi and it’s just a really good memory. There’s so many good memories with Susan and truthfully I can’t even remember a bad one. Never a dull moment with her . You gonna be missed dearly Susan.
