Prior to transitioning to a full-time homemaker, Susan managed multiple food establishments, namely Cinnabon which she managed with Patrick for 10 years. She was a devoted Army wife that made friends at every duty station she shared with Patrick. She was well known for cultivating an enviable yard wherever she and Patrick resided. The last couple of years, she spent a great deal of time painting rocks and handing them out to random people just to see them smile.
Susan and Patrick moved to Florida in February 2021 to retire and spend more time with family and friends
