Susie was in my 7th grade math class at SHMS and a member of our Y-Club; Susie was an excellent student and contributed to Y-Club activities. She was definitely the "teacher's pet" as far as I was concerned and we could always count on her vivacious laugh and sparkling eyes. Mr. Gallagher taught her daughter Kristy and loved her dearly, always keeping a special snack for her in his desk drawer. You and your family remain in our hearts and prayers for your loss; we are sure that as a nurse Susie's presence made a difference in the lives of many patients. She was loved by many and was a light in our hearts.
