I'm so sorry to hear of Susi's passing. She was truly wonderful & full of life. I could see that immediately, even only knowing her a few days toward the end of her life. I am happy to have met her and her wonderful family members. I am sorry for your loss.

Bev & family,
Susi was very blessed to have you in her life . You were always there for her  & she spoke often of you all. She was a special person in my life since high school days & I have great memories of fun & laughter in over 50 years of friendship.
Union City will never be the same without her. She gave generously to many causes in the community when she had The Shadow& her antique shop...never said no to anyone in need.
She never complained in recent years while suffering through much illness. I know she is in a better place now, but will be sorely missed by many.

Susi, you helped me through a very tough time in my life. You had a heart of gold and you will be missed by so many.  Your kindness and giving nature, without expecting anything in return, is what I'll always remember you for.  You were a beautiful woman inside and out. I hope you and Kimi are having a good laugh like we used to aat The Shadows.  Oh, and your cooking ( my fav the rice with peppers side) will go down as one of the best around.  Rest in blissful peace with no more pain and suffering.  You were love and respected by many!

So sorry for your loss.  Susie was a good friend.  We talked at church many times.  Susie was in Sigma Phi Gamma Sorority with me.  She was a good worker and helped out a lot.

Susi, may you rest in peace, you beautiful lady.  You had such an impact on me in my younger years; working at the Fireside Room and the Shadows.  You were always there to listen.  I love you Susi!  Until we meet again!
