Susan B. Jensen, 81, passed away peacefully on 13 November 2020 at her home in Richmond, VA. She was born 14 August 1939, in Newton, Massachusetts to Gorham and Eleanore Cottle. Growing up in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, she maintained a love for New England her entire life. After high school she earned her associate degree in Nursing – bringing cheer and compassion to so many as a registered nurse for over 30 years. She is survived by her husband Roger, and their two children: Peter and Kristen, as well as two grandchildren, and many loving family and friends.
Susan was known for her willingness to care for anyone with open arms. She developed a love for the game Scrabble from playing with her mother, and enjoyed playing – and beating – her family and friends throughout her whole life. A constant reader, she explored many areas, subjects, and cultures – but most loved to share her finds with others and talk about books. In her last years, Alzheimer’s disease took away her mind, but never diminished the bright light of her spirit. She will be dearly missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Children’s Literacy Initiative. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
