Susan Woods Gilroy, 72, passed away on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, after a valiant battle with cancer. Sue amazed her friends and family by maintaining her sense of humor and her faith during her illness.
Susan graduated from Woodland High School in 1960 and went on to graduate from Stanford University. Sue continued her education at the University of Oregon where she received a Masters Degree in Library Science. She also held a Masters in Education and Public Administration, which gave her the ability to live a happy life in various professions. One of Susan's favorite career positions was as the librarian at the American and Alaskan Indian Art Institute in Santa Fe, N.M. After serving five years as the library director at Travis Air Force Base she retired and moved to Lowman, Idaho, where she enjoyed being an online librarian for the American Public University System. Sue absolutely loved living in Lowman and truly appreciated the love and support she received from the Lowman Community Church.
