No job was more important than that of a mother. Susan was involved with many civic, charitable organizations, and church. She was a life-long member of Marsh Lane Baptist Church. Her Christian faith enabled her to be an extraordinary example of a devoted wife, mom, and MeMe, who presented love, joy, commitment, sacrifice, humbleness, protector and defender for others and her unique genuineness. Finally, she will always be remembered for her contagious laughter and living by the motto of "once a friend, always a friend."
