  4. John, Lauren and Emma,

    I just don’t have the words right now to say how so very sorry I am for the loss of your beautiful wife and mother. I worked with Susan at Dillard’s South County, and was blessed to have met her and become friends. She was an instant match to my sarcastic humor, and we had so many laughs over the years. But more importantly were the tender moments when she would glow talking about her wonderful and amazing daughters and husband. She loved all of you more than life itself.

    She will be so fiercely missed. She touched and made such an impact on so many lives. May she rest in the arms of Jesus.

  5. We were very surprised to hear of her passing. Have known Sue and her family since we both taught Sunday School at First Baptist Church in Affton. I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her .
    Saying prayers for her husband and daughters and all of her family.

  6. Words cannot express the how sorry I was to hear of Susan’s passing. Such a loss to for you John & your daughters
    I was a client of hers at Dillards So County, but I was also retired from Dillards Buying office. My prayers to all of her family.

  7. John and family,
    You are in my prayers. I enjoyed working with Susan at Dillards so much.
    Every time I went into South county I always look forward to seeing her.
    Continued prayers.

  11. So sorry for your family’s loss. I worked with Susan at Dillard’s, I was in the accessories department (Kendra Scott / James Avery jewelry).

    Several times we shared lunchtimes together and she always spoke fondly of her family and her times together. She had a friendly caring personality and she will be missed greatly!!

    I was shocked to learn of her passing.
