Kiernan, Susan "Sue" - Columbia  
Susan "Sue" Kiernan COLUMBIA - Susan "Sue" Kiernan died at Agape Hospice House in Columbia, SC, early Wednesday morning, March 25, 2015. The cause was complications related to pancreatic cancer. She was 66 years old. SC Cremation Society, Lexington is assisting with arrangements. Sue was born in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, NY, to Frank Giovannone, a steel worker, and his wife Mary (nee Lamia), a homemaker. An only child, Susan moved with her parents to Valley Stream, Long Island, where she graduated from Central High School. She was married to David Kiernan for 20 years and raised two daughters, Denise and Christine. She was a band mom, a dance mom, a chaperone, and more, for her kids and their friends. While married, Sue traveled across the country and the sea, but it was when she came to the southeast that she truly found her home. A self-described southern gal born in the north, Sue lived in Columbia for nearly 33 years. She worked in bookkeeping and sales, most recently for J.J. Haines and Co., Inc., the nation's largest floor covering distributor. Over the years, she has won several awards for her sales achievements. A remarkable cook, Sue loved nothing more than to fill her kitchen with family and friends and to share her Italian culinary talents. She was an avid runner who competed in many races, both locally and throughout the southeast, including more than a decade's worth of appearances in the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. Though raised Roman Catholic, Sue chose to be baptized again as an adult after accepting Jesus Christ as her savior, and her faith was an integral part of her day-to-day life. She supported various charities and missions. After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last yearthe same disease that had taken her father, FrankSue inspired many in both word and action. She shared her difficult story with others, encouraging them to live life while they could. Following her first bout of chemotherapy, she traveled to Florida with her family and fulfilled a long-held dream to swim with dolphins. Her spirit during her sickness astounded everyone who met her as she outlived even the most optimistic expectations of the medical community. Sue's family remain indebted to the caregivers from Compassionate Care Hospice and Agape Hospice House who helped ensure that their mother's final days were comfortable. Sue is survived by her mother, Mary Cipriano, of Columbia, and by her two daughters: Denise Kiernan, who lives with her husband, Joseph D'Agnese, in Asheville, NC, and Christine Kiernan Fisher, who lives with her husband, Todd Fisher, in Greensboro, NC.
