Susu was born October 14, 1949 in Tyler, Texas and was the oldest of five sisters. A life-long student of the teachings and message of Jesus Christ, she shared her light and love with everyone in her circle of family and friends. Susu was always ready to offer prayers in your time of need. Her time and attention were primarily focused on the success and happiness of her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. But her caring, generous nature extended past her family.
Susu found immense joy in supporting and nurturing her grandchildren and planning and participating in all events from kindergarten to college graduations. She was everyone’s biggest cheerleader and loved to celebrate other’s achievements. Susu always made holidays, birthday and graduations special.
She found solace in the beauty of nature. Susu enjoyed watching birds, butterflies and visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and beaches along the Texas coast and especially loved Smith Woods on High Island during migrations and nesting seasons.
Susu had a huge heart and a kind soul; helping everyone that needed assistance. She was a faithful and kind friend who will be missed deeply by all who were touched by her sweet cards and letters.
