Susan was an accomplished gardener, growing champion tomatoes and flowers. She loved the beach, spending time at home, and especially family gatherings for holiday celebrations. She will be truly missed by all who knew her as a lovely, caring, intelligent person.
The family is truly thankful for the loving care provided Susan at Cape Fear Valley. At all times, staff were exceptionally loving and caring for her and her family and we will be forever grateful. The family requests your prayers, not in sorrow, but in joy for a life lived, the happiness she provided and the knowledge we will see her again.
A golden heart stopped beating and working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. To God be the glory!
