The first time I met Susi, she was laughing and having fun with people that we all became friends with thru the years. I always will remember when she came to stay in Saginaw with us for the weekend and cooked alot of food, of corse Mexican food and my dad just loved it, well we all did. Dad used to tease and chase Susi to give her a pinch and her beautiful face would turn redder then red. Sus will be missed by all that knew her and shared a great laught with her. RIH Susi cue. My prayers & Condolences to her family.

Susi was a wonderful woman and will be missed very much. I was one of the students she worked with at crystal and Carson City. I also knew susi away from school and she was such a caring and a sweetheart. I give my prayers to her family and sorry for your loss. I just want you all to know she made an impression on me and went to college and graduated from high school and Cincinnati College Of Mortuary Science. Thank you susi for all you encouraged and helped me through when you were there, I will always have you in my heart and mind.

I am very sorry for your loss. Susi was truly a friend to everyone and will be missed greatly by many. Susi was a big part of my childhood and I can remember her and Mandy being at many family events. I was always happy to see her and enjoyed my visits with her when I was in the area. I’m glad that I got to catch up with her when I was last in the USA. Ill miss you Susi and I’ll try to be a friend to everyone just like you.

Susie was a wonderful, caring person, who wore her heart on her sleeve. She cared deeply for all the students at school and always wanted to help out. I've had the great pleasure of knowing her for many years and she has always been in my thoughts. She will be sadly missed by many.

Amanda, please accept my sincere condolences. Your Mom and I were High School friends and noted as the best dancer in the Class of 74. In addition to her dancing skills she was a great person with a huge heart. Your Mom left a positive and sparkling light on all of her classmates. I was lucky enough to call her my friend. Tom Herald

I still can't believe she's gone. I was so brokenhearted to hear of her passing. She was an amazing, sweet, caring, wonderful person. I was one of her students years ago and she was so good to me, and to all of us. Throughout my life she was always there to support and love me. I will forever miss her smile, her hugs, and her words of encouragement. I am now a published author, and if it hadn't been for her I would have never persued my dream. She always said to me how she knew I could do and be anything I wanted to be as long as I had a dream and worked hard to make it come true. She always knew I could do it, even when I doubted myself. You changed all of our lives for the better Susi. You changed everyone you touched. I will miss you my friend. Rest in peace Susi, until we meet again.
