My memories of Susie are so full of life and positive as she was a fun and interesting soul every time I was able to visit Bobbie and Rod's home. She was always very interested in others & carried on a great conversatiion so holiday get-togethers were a joy plus she was a great cook!! Hmmmm, I'm remembering an artichoke appetizer and a famous dessert, tiramisu I do believe!! You will be missed Susie but we're thankful you're no longer suffering and that you have a new body in Heaven. Love to all the Southworths.

I called her "Mrs Nothin' " and she called me "Somethin' " from the time I was 10 years old. Mrs Nothin' was my very first softball coach, back when CP Girls Softball was played at Wells St Park. She always had a smile on her face, and you always knew she cared. She was bright light in every room she was in. Bobbie and family, I know you will miss her for the time we have left here on earth, but we know Eternity will be a blast with her there when we join her!! ❤⚾️

Sending my love to all. I had the pleasure of spending a summer evening with Suzie and her beautiful children, believe it was a graduation celebration...perhaps a birthday. What I remember most was the laughter, every corner was filled with the sounds of joy, heartfelt celebration and a wonderful time was had by all. I am ever grateful for having had this night to get to know her, and am forever thankful for her bringing my dear and beloved Karen into this world.

I grew up close to the SouthWorth family home . I would say , Herbie [ Herb Jr] was my best friend . I was considered family . We also shared an almost similar last name ( for it’s Worth) . My favorite memory of Mrs .SouthWorth was one time I spent the night for the first time , and she explained the house was haunted . Scared me , and I don’t think I ever stopped believing in ghost s . I thought she was a great person , story teller , and she will always be remembered .. my condolences again to Herb, Lisa , Roberta , and Lori and all the family . Sincerely, Eric South

We are so sorry to hear about your loss, Aunt Susie was always a positive light, always smiling and happy! She was my first employer although I doubt her children will say they loved my babysitting abilities! Love to all of you and your families.
