Susan was born on January 24, 1949, in Syracuse, New York. Her family moved to Lititz, Pennsylvania where she graduated from Warwick High School. After a blind date at the bowling alley, she fell in love and married Jerry on October 21, 1967, and they were happily married for 35 years. She was a proud Air Force wife and stay-at-home mom. His military career would allow them to reside in Mississippi, Michigan, Colorado, Montana, Florida, and Virginia.
