Suzanne graduated from Westmont in 1964 and then went on to earn her B.S. at The University of Pittsburgh. She taught English at Richland School District before devoting her life to her beloved children. She also managed Hickory Farms in the Westwood Plaza. She loved trying new recipes, knitting, and spending quality time with her husband, family, and her beach friends at the “Crab Shack” in Myrtle Beach, SC. Sue also loved to read. After finishing a book, she would always declare that it was “the best book ever!” But more than anything, Sue was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was a member of the Second Presbyterian Church, where a memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Second Presbyterian Church 565 Park Ave. Johnstown, PA. 15902 or St. Jude’s Hospital 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN. 38105.
