In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her daughter, Margaret “Peggy” A. Riglin, and all of her siblings. Susan was the last of her generation.
Susan was a member of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Bellefonte. Susan loved flowers and tending to her plants; when younger, she enjoyed taking her kids to the movie theater, the park, swimming, fishing, and ice skating. She loved reading, novels, magazines, knitting, Penn State football, ELVIS, the Steelers (especially Bill Cowher) and her beloved Tom Brady. She loved to watch tennis on TV and her favorite was Roger Federer. Some of her favorite shows to watch were Judge Judy, Cheyanne, movies, and anything on the Western channel. She shared her love of music with her children; listened to all the classics of the 60's 70's, 80's and beyond. Susan was a classic pianist, played Chopin, Beethoven and could play the music of many other artists by "ear", a true talent. She would spend hours at the piano playing music into the night with her children by her side, and for all the neighbors to hear too!
Susan was a dedicated mother to her four children, was Mimi to her grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She loved them all more than words can describe. She had an amazing heart of gold, was so very generous and was always fun to be around; she had a keen sense of humor. Susan had special friends and family members that she enjoyed keeping in touch with whether over the phone, through letters and cards, and visits. Susan will be missed by her family and friends. She was a special lady and was loved by all who knew her. Fly high Mimi until we see you again.
