She was always a champion of anyone who needed help or healing from being a regular blood donor to ultimately becoming an organ donor, Susan constantly strived to make the world a better place. But now, she is together again with Grandma, Big Ski, and her beloved cats, Tigger and Fluffy. The extent of her good heart and love of life cannot be described. She belonged to the American Planning Association and was a Life Member of the NRA. She attended St. Joseph s Catholic Church since returning to Topeka.
