I was shocked to read that Susie had passed away this week. I remember stuffing envelopes with her when her dad was running for mayor of Alton many moons ago. We also headed to Illinois State University together & we were roommates with 4 other gals during our first semester freshman year. After that first semester - we went different directions and seldom saw each other. We had some good & interesting times during that first semester away from home!!! Susie was always a good, fun-loving, and caring person. My condolences to her family. She has left this world too soon.   :)

We all were shocked and saddened about the news of such a strong spirit as this! 

My memories of her begin in Rainbows.  Church and Rainbows were some of the ways I knew people outside of North Alton and Godfrey.  She was a delight to know.  Very quiet but, confident, I think that is what I remember best of her.  I always felt that if you really knew her she might not be as quiet as I remember!

We worked on decorations for the dances, newsletters and I think drill team the years I knew her.

It was great to see her accomplishments in her adult life and more of a maturation of the young woman I remember that was evolving into the woman I saw depicted in the obituary presented to the public.

She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and community!  God must have seen her as an angel he could call home and depend on!

My sympathy goes out to her loved ones.  I'm glad I was graced with your friendship and having known you.  RIP my friend.
