As a member of St. John's Lutheran Church, she served as an usher, lector, served two terms on the church council, was a member of WELCA and the Prayer Shawl Ministry.
Susi lived a full and active life. She had a colorful personality, made friends easily; she was known for her keen sense of humor and her ability to make people laugh.
