Susan was a wonderful caring person. She loved the residents and staff of Peterson and was very proud of Taylor and Jack and loved Jim greatly! I will always have precious memories of her. She always smiled and had a positive attitude, even though she was facing hurdles, she never let others see it. I will always have wonderful memories of her!

I only just learned of Susan’s passing and still want to include my memories of some special times with her. Susan asked me to play the piano for the first Christmas Tea (almost 9 years ago now) that she organized at Peterson, which turned out to be the very day my mother died there earlier in the day. Being able to play anyway was a blessing to me and created a bond that remained with Susan, who asked me to play every year since. When my father died at Peterson this past September she shared her pain at also having just lost her father, and it was so meaningful to be able to share the experience with someone who understood. I had many opportunities to see her at work in the Activities Department, witnessing her creative spirit of encouraging patients, family members, and other staff with enthusiasm and much love, even when sometimes struggling with her own pain. She has left a heritage, I believe, that remains there. And I know that she has left a rich example of care and compassion for me personally.

Susan was rare gem who shone brightest when talking about her family especially her children, that’s how we met – our daughters were friends! She had that infectious laugh you never forget, a smile that held warmth. A beautiful girl inside and out. We are all better for knowing her, she brought with her a true compassion for everyone. My heart hurts for all her family especially Jimmy, Taylor and Jack. This is hard to believe and I will never forget all the memories we shared together. Sending deepest sympathy to all.
