  • I have known Susan since 1st grade. We were best friends all through Middle School and lost closeness in high school. I am so sorry and give my condolences to Susan’s family.

  • Susan was an insightful, diligent. honest, and trusted co-worker. Always willing to present the difficult perspective; her perspective I respected. Pacem-

  • Susan was the Core Lab Manager for the GCRC. I was the Informatics Core Manager. Susan and I had much fun designing a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that is still used today! Susan was a demanding and precise customer so there was little ambiguity in the specifications for her applications. Her legacy continues!!!

  • So sorry to hear about Susan. I have not seen her in years, but her family lived not far from mine in Ostrander, and we spent lots of time in 4-H and on horseback together. Thoughts and prayers to her family, and I hope the dogs are OK, too–if I was closer I would help! Blessings–

  • I was a part of Haresuite back in the day when Susan was our manager. She demonstrated an almost endless supply of patience at any given time–quick to smile or shoot a knowing glance–you were never blurry about what she was thinking. In large part because of Susan, I got the opportunity to create some of the best memories of my life. I am astonished by how quickly she left and more impressed by the impacts she had whilst here. Susan is someone I will always hold dear in my heart . . .

  • I meet Susan and Michele through real estate. I am a realtor. I sold Susan’s home in Grandview Heights and sold her the Ashley home. I found her to have a grounded sense of fairness, love of life, a compassion for her pets, a quick wit and sharp mind. I feel myself blessed to have developed a friendship. Our times together, although few, always left me with a smile and an appreciation for life. She has made me a better person and I am honored to have known her.

  • Michele, you and Susan were such wonderful neighbors on North Star. Your wildflower front yard was always a picture to behold. Susan always had time to stop and talk and share her love for her dogs. She had such a short time on her new farm, but did get to see her life’s dream fulfilled. Please stop and see us when you are in the neighborhood. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    Cindy and Doug Hartsook.

  • I have awesome childhood memories of Susan. We went to school together from the lst grade @ Warrensburg thru our freshman year at OSU.
    We spent a lot time at each others home, lawn chairs in the truck at the drive thru movies, and many late nights at the dorm.

    Susan, Karen Crook and I were best buddies. I miss both of them very much.
    Class reunions will not be the same without both of them.
