Susan was born in 1966, raised in New Castle, DE and resided in Pike Creek, DE. Susan graduated from Padua Academy in 1984 and obtained her Associates Degree from Delaware Tech. She was employed by Pathmark/Acme for over 35 years as a pharmacy technician.

Susan was a fiercely dedicated mother of her two daughters, raising them to lead successful careers. She was very involved in her children’s activities by volunteering as Brownie Leader, Homeroom Mom, and attending all sporting events.

She and her loving husband, Jim, enjoyed walks at Winterthur and traveling the United States. She spent many summers at the beach in Fenwick, DE with family and friends. Family came first and was her number one priority in life, a value she instilled in all those around her.
