Susie was a bright light in many people’s lives, she always knew how to put a smile on the faces of those around her. She was a true fashionista, always dressed to the nines, all eyes turning to her when she stepped into a room. She always knew how to tear up a dance floor, but still, her favorite activity was snapping photos of those around her until someone snatched the phone from her hands, she was paparazzi Susie. Susie worked in title/real estate services and thrived at sales and marketing. She loved meeting new people and making personal connections because it gave her a reason to talk.
