Susan loved reading, traveling and talking on the phone.  She was a Steeler fan and made her chocolate candy. She was an avid card club member with friends where she would play Hand and Foot among other games. One of her favorite past times, was  being a band parent for both of her children. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

A great cousin! Loved her! I loved the fact you knew exactly what she thought, a lot like her father, who was my Uncle Bob. I will miss her with dearly and deeply held memories. Blessings to her family and friends.
