Susan was born Sept. 22, 1961 in New Jersey. After high school Susan received a BA degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pa. Susan was extremely talented and loved the simple pleasures of life, working in the arts, reading, throwing pottery on her kiln, doing beautiful needlework, tending to her farm and mostly being with her animals. She is survived by many family members who loved her dearly.

I’ll look for you among the stars, and each dawn’s pastel sky, and whisper words of love to you, but never say goodbye.
