She graduated magna cum laude from Arlington Heights High School in 1964 and entered the University of Texas at Arlington, where she was a charter member of the University's Tri Delta Sorority and where she met her future husband, John.

Playing with her grandchildren, whether swinging from ropes, treasuring hunting, or swimming in the pool was one of Susan's greatest joys. She was a friend to many including friendships that began in junior high school and close friendships with fellow sailors and was a friend to anyone who needed her. Her sister described her as "the best little sister ever!".
Susan and John would have celebrated their 53rd anniversary on June 8. He loved her well "in sickness and in health".
A friend of her sisters who said she had always wanted a sister like Susan recently said of her "Susan is certainly one courageous woman who loves the Lord and her family so very much." Her family certainly agrees with this statement.
