Susan was a resident of Shreveport. She received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from LSUS University and was a music and grade schoolteacher for 20 years.

She was an accomplished pianist and vocalist. She created cantatas at her church where she led children in song. Her love of music allowed her to share and teach generations of children to play the piano and hosted an abundance of piano recitals. Susan gave countless time to the music ministry including children’s ministry, church services, and special family events.

When not playing music, she enjoyed working in her flowerbeds and planting a vegetable garden.

She loved animals, especially her dogs and cats. Susan was a sweet and wonderful daughter, sister, niece, mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be greatly missed by her family and all those that had the privilege of knowing her.

Susan is preceded in death by her father, Warren Crothers; mother, Gladys Crothers; brother, Timothy Crothers; and sister, Shelia Hunt. Left to cherish her memory is her children, Sheri (Aaron), Shane (Valerie) and Carrie (Billy Ray); grandchildren, Jayden, Brystal, Brennen, Dakota, Josh and Jake; sister, Ellen Horn; brother, Joseph Craig Neat; and Uncle Bob and Aunt Barbara Parnell.

Susan will never be forgotten. She will live on in our hearts forever.
