"Susan was a member of the AAUW Omaha Chapter and I always enjoyed working with her and seeing her. These last years, I would chat on the phone with her. Even with her health issues, she generously participated in AAUW's December 2022 project providing new blankets for elementary students of an Omaha school that AAUW partnered with. "
