Susan was born in Eunice, Louisiana on June 24, 1959. She was a parishioner of St. Thomas More Catholic Church where she volunteered and was a member of the St. Martha’s Guild. She had a deep love for her faith and actively participated in church activities. Susan’s greatest joy came from watching her grandchildren play sports and she wholeheartedly supported them in their endeavors. Her loving presence and encouragement meant the world to them. For many years, Susan worked alongside her beloved sisters and family at the Flower House, owned by their family in Eunice.
