Susanna loved life and to joke and have fun anyone who knew her had to appreciate her great sense of humor. She thought the world of her grandkids and her children. She was a great cook and loved to prepare big meals which she enjoyed herself as well. The last meal she cooked was on Friday a batch of beans and homemade bread. She loved her garden and greenhouse, that was one of her great passions. When Susanna wasn’t cooking or gardening she loved to dress up and took great pride in her appearance. She also loved to look good when she went shopping, another thing she loved to do. Susanna was married 57 years to the love of her life David and had 4 beautiful children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Her family will miss her humor and wonderful presence always but they have beautiful memories to cherish. In remembering Susanna think of her wonderful sense of humor and great ability to laugh. Memories live forever.
Flowers gratefully accepted or donations in her memory may be made to the family.
