    Dear cousins, after not hearing from your mom I resorted to google and found this obituary. I am so sorry and sad to hear of her death. We were so fortunate to spend time with her in October and that time will always be a precious memory for me. Your cousin Laurie Walker Severs

  20. Sally Walker Says:

    To Susan’s children and grandchildren, I was so sorry to hear of Susan’s passing. I just heard about it last night from our cousin Laurie. Susan was the one who periodically emailed each of her cousins both individually and as a group. She was our contact with the rest of the family. We will miss her. I have called my parents Ken and Iris Walker (Susan’s aunt and uncle) and my brother Steve (Susan’s cousin) and they were each very sorry to hear their favorite niece had passed away. Our prayers and love are with you at this time.
    Sally Walker
