While there she met life long friends and enjoyed seeing New England. Susan graduate Class of 1972. After coming home Susan worked at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital and at the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance in Penn Yan, NY. Susan loved her family and loved visiting with them and telling them stories. She loved bright colors and wearing fun colorful patterns. You could see it also in her drawings and paintings. The wilder and crazier the better. She had a love for reading and was always going to the library for a stack of books. Another passion was ancestry and our roots. She loved nature, the sounds, hiking, camping and traveling and her black eyed susans. Susan loved her coffee and was rarely seen without a cup in her hand. She absolutely loved candy bars and donuts. She helped anyone she could and dreamed of having a bird sanctuary. Every year she looked forward to having a birthday celebration with twin uncle and aunt and her aunts son. All sharing a birthday together. She enjoyed and looked forward to her time with Anne Raner who meant so much to her. Anne is an aunt who is more like a “sister”. The love of Susan's life was her cat Molly.
