Susan was my cousin on my father's side. My father, John O'Brien was the younger brother to Susan's mother Mary (May).

I remember her laughing! We would visit aunt May with my Dad frequently and he would let us tag along. Susan was very kind to us children (we were about a decade younger), since my Dad was the youngest of 7 of the O'Brien clan. Susan would be doing her nails and have her hair up in curlers getting ready to go out. OH! I was so envious of her. She was funny and gracious at the same time.

I am sorry for you loss, but she remains in peace, now.
God Bless her family.
