So sad to here about Susan. My memories of her go way back to when Chris and I were kids. I do remember playing games and hanging out a bit with her when our families got together. She always seemed to be a jolly person! I will always remember her as a little girl, having not seen her as an older adult.
I&m sorry I was not back in Indiana to pay my respects and to see Bill and Bob. It would have been nice to touch base with them.
Thinking about you. Take care.
We were so saddened to hear that Susan had made her transition. She was truly a special human being, always cheerful, loving, and attentive to everything and everyone around her. She especially showed those helping, social skills with the elderly residents at Regency (I (Bette) saw her ""in action"" several times there, ministering to someone in the dining area - delightful as always!).
Your obituary was beautiful, and so appropriate in describing her talents and interests. She was truly a teacher/role model for so many of us who knew her -
a true angel.
We&re sorry we won&t be able to attend this afternoon&s memorial service, but please know that our thoughts and loving memories are with her and her loving family.
She will truly be missed!
With love and fond memories,
Bette and Joe Rubinstein
I worked at Wabash Center many years ago with Susan, She was always one of my favorites. She always had a smile on her face and always gave me a big hug. I to was very lucky to have a down&s child. I lost my daughter when she was 5, that is one reason I went to work at the center. I was blest by working there with special people like Susan. I also helped in Special Olpymics so again I shared time with Susan. I am so sorry but like myself you have a very special angel looking down at you now. Thank you for sharing Susan with so many of us. Jackie
I was sorry to hear of your loss. I read on Facebook about your trip back to WL for this sad occasion. My thoughts are with you
We was sorry to hear of Susan&s death. We have such fond memories of her when she and Ruth Ann attended Kingston with Mrs. Thomas as their teacher. Susan was such a joy to be around and always had big hugs to give everyone. May happy and fun memories comfort you during this time of loss. Our thougths and prayers are with you.

I knew Susan when I worked on rec programs during much of my time in Lafayette. Susan also lived across from my parents when she lived at a group home on Central Street in Lafayette.
Susan was always thinking about something, something she could do, would do, was doing, had done... She was busy and happy and always had some good words. My parents were especially impressed by Susan. She would go out walking, and while clearly NOT her favorite activity, she always took a minute to make Dad laugh. And Dad would wave and have something to say to her.
I remeber Susan playing music and singing. She loved an appreciative audience! Lively and fun.
I am truly sorry for your loss. I hope you are able to draw strength from your memories of her laughter, courage, willfullness (yes, she had the right opinion much of the time - just ask her!), and integrity. The world is better because she was in it.
We were sad to read today of Susan&s death. You were all such a large part of our lives when we lived in the neighborhood and Susan was a great companion for our girls. Chrissy and Susan had many wonderful adventures and laughs with Hillary tagging along when possible. Susan had a joyful soul.
Susan has indeed had a full life and we know that your advocacy for her has helped many others do the same.
We send our sincere sympathy to you all for this loss.

God bless you in this time of your great loss of your sweet daughter.
