Obituary of Susan Elizabeth Roth

Susan Elizabeth Roth was born on November 27, 1952 in Monroe.   She was one of three children born from the union of Harold Roth and the late Bettie (Harmon) Roth.    She attended Ida Schools.

Susan was blessed with the birth of four children, and for the past twenty-nine years she had shared her life with her significant other, Ross Brown Sr.   She also thought of Ross’ two children as her own. Spending time with family was most important to Susan and the memories made will be forever cherished.

Susan was a devoted member of Crosspointe Church, where she had many close friends, some of which became family.   She worked as a Secretary for the Senior Ministry and for the Love Lifters within the church.

Susan loved the outdoors and tending to her immaculate gardens that filled her yard each year.   She would often watch the birds and nature as they came to enjoy her beautiful flowers.   Susan enjoyed traveling and taking cruises.   Her kayak adventures brought her to Lake Superior and the Myakka River in Florida.

In her spare time, Susan enjoyed crocheting and reading novels, but most often the Bible.   She played cards with friends and made amazing baked/ canned goods for her loved ones to share, including monster cookies and jelly.
