A lifelong Kokomo resident, Susan was a proud graduate of Northwestern High School. During her senior year, she began working at the Credit Bureau of Kokomo where she spent 19 years until it closed. After a brief period at Rochester-Midland she was employed at Eastern Howard School Corporation for 19 years.

Susan enjoyed gardening. She was a collector of baskets, something that brought her joy. For 18 years Susan was a member of the Hoosier Lighthousing Club and volunteered at the Old Michigan City Lighthouse helping to maintain the grounds and building.

A lifelong member of Shiloh United Methodist Church, Susan enjoyed working with several other ladies on prayer quilts for members. After her stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis she was presented one that she took with her whenever she was able to attend services.

Susan is survived by her husband, David; her daughter, Heather (Mohamed Soliman) Hannum; grandchildren, Zahara, Adam and Noah Soliman; sisters, Verna (Philip Keith) Rush and Anna Jean (Jim) Kuhns; brothers, Edward Spraker and David (Clarinda) Spraker; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
