We are very sadden and sorry to hear the loss of Susan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Her smile was uplifting and she made time for others always. She was the first face I saw in our journey with hearing loss over 16 years ago. I remember fondly being told of a wonderful lady, a strong advocate with a twin same as me. It was a connection we both had. I will forever be grateful for you always being there for support and will treasure the memories of all the functions we attended together especially our trip to Florida for the Hard of Hearing Conference and the Family Camps and events with CHHA.

Susan’s Family
From the first time I met you all, you made an outstanding imprint on me that I will never forget!1 The accomplishments, the love & the fun that radiated from all of you was so outstanding!! No one ever taught me so much about family, commitment, standing for what you believe in, faithfulness and hard work as you all did. From the Halloween cape & youth group, to teaching me how to wish a congregation Happy Birthday in sign, to the smiles and hugs that brightened a room when either of you entered; my life is richer because of you all. Susan was an instrumental and positive force in helping to mold you all into the wonderful family she was so devoted to. May God give you all strength to take one day at a time;
Sandra & Frank

Dear Mark, Maggie, baby Clara and your families!
I was so shocked to read of Susan’s passing this morning! How heartbroken you must be!
Last June when three of The Celtic Fiddlers played for your rehearsal party we were so impressed with Susan and her happiness and overjoy to see you married to each other. And now with the little one, Clara, she must have been over the moon!
I can’t tell you how sad I am to learn of this!
She was a wonderful and happy person always, her family was first and she will always be remembered as a beautiful mother and wife!

God bless you all, Korona Brophy
