Susie and Clyde both enjoyed Wolverine football and traveled with the team when Tim and Bob played.  She was a member of the Community Church and Eastern Star, and she loved to read.

Susie fought a long and brave battle with cancer. She always had a positive attitude and smile.  Susie was “One of a Kind”!!
