Susie was devoted to her family and was a loving sister, mom, and grandma. The joy of her life was her grandchildren and her Gracie, “Grammy's Baby.” Susie was an honest, faithful, and loyal friend. She loved her Baue family and her work daughters, as well as her Flower Stand family.
Susie loved going to the beach; it was her happy place. The beach was her sanctuary, a place where she felt most relaxed and content. Susie made her yearly trips to the beach with her family and forever friends, a time for them to reconnect, strengthen their bonds, and create new memories together. Their trips were filled with laughter, shared stories, and countless memorable moments. Susie was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
