I am very sorry to see this news.  Susan and I were friends at Jefferson School.  Susan’s parents both worked (her dad was later our physics teacher at CHS), and I was impressed that she was allowed to go home at noon and open a can of soup, by herself, to cook our lunch.  Although our worldviews were very different, we reconnected on Facebook several years ago and appreciated each other’s postings.  She kept a positive attitude despite her illness, often sharing her love of quilting.  She will be missed by many.
