Susan was an active member of Freedom Baptist Church of Wilmington; she loved helping others in need and spending time with her church family. She loved to cook, always trying new and interesting recipes. She lived a quiet life, enjoying simple pleasures like gardening, tending to her home and spending time with family and friends.
