Mom was a kind, loving person who made sure her children never did without. Mom had a hard life, her father died before she was born. In addition to school and daily chores she did everything from planting to canning for their truck farm. She had to quit school early to work in the family store. Mom married at 18 and lost her first born at 20. In spite of this Mom focused on the love and joy in her life. She loved music, books, crosswords, playing games with her children and grandchildren and being there for family and friends. Everyone who knew her was blessed and better off. Mom is sitting in Heaven listening to The Three Tenors with a bowl of Brach's candy for us when we arrive. Susan's family would like to thank the kind staff at Windber Woods and Hospice 365 for their outstanding personal care. No viewing per Susan's request, a memorial service is to be scheduled at a later date to celebrate her life. Arrangements entrusted to Meek & Dalla Valle Funeral Home, Windber.
