Acomb.Susan graduated from Loveland High School and went on to receive her Bachelors Degree in Anthropology from University of Cincinnati, then traveled to France to study at the Sorbonne. She held a career as a speech writer during her employment with GE Aircraft Engine. Susan was a passionate Democrat and spent countless hours fundraising and promoting her political values. She loved to garden, entertain, and decorate her immaculate home.In her later years, Susan took much joy in caring for and loving her grandchildren, spending time hiking with them in Winton Woods and Hocking Hills with her husband, Greg, an avid photographer who documented those special memories. Susan always loved Christmas, but when the grandchildren and their cousins arrived she poured herself wholeheartedly into making it special for them, with a homemade gingerbread house for each of them to decorate (in the garage, of course). She made dozens upon dozens of Christmas cookies, going so far as to carefully package them and send them to grandchildren living far away. She was also known for her fabulous Christmas parties and homemade eggnog.A private celebration of Susan's life has been held. The family wishes to extend a thank you to everyone for their care and support during this time.
