Susan was always known to be the life of the party. She had an infectious laugh that could be heard throughout the room. Susan enjoyed her time with family and friends. She is missed deeply by all.
Susan most recently worked in the Pine River-Backus School Cafeteria and loved to see all of the kids each day. She was looking forward to returning this year as she formed many meaningful relationships with her co-workers before her unfortunate passing. In her free time Susan enjoyed spending time with her family. Some of her favorite activities included being at a ball field, taking her grandkids to the waterpark, spending time with her beloved dog Carley, making different crafts, fishing, and working in her garden.
