Susan was a member of the Harvest Bible Chapel and a former member of the Henry County Farm Bureau and the “Singing Bells.”

She enjoyed traveling in their motorhome, sewing, quilting and especially being with her family. Susan was an avid Cubs fan and it was her desire that family and friends wear Cubs attire to her visitation and service.
