Susie enjoyed gardening, her roses and her gladiolus, which she planted every year in her garden, and her sewing. She enjoyed quilting and has shared her love of this by gifting her family with many of her handmade quilts over the years. Her greatest joy came from her family. She loved her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great- great grandchildren more than they could imagine. She and her husband Bill enjoyed being strong supporters of University of Kentucky basketball.
