Susan graduated from John Randolph Tucker High School. She loved knitting and enjoyed her grandchildren; they were everything to her. She and her husband, Keith, met in 1973 in the breakroom at Vepco, where they worked. It was immediate love for Keith, who proclaimed at the first sight of Susan that he was going to marry her. The next year they were married and this July marks 47 years of their love story.
