Arizona, sister Phyllis Jones of Weems Virginia, brother Kenneth Mclain and Darlene of Milan NH, brother Andrew Mclain and Lynn of Milan NH and sister Gail Beroney and Jimmy of Stark NH. Susan enjoyed playing games with friends, spending time with her family,
playing with her cat, crocheting, wood burning, loved and collected snowmen, watching and feeding birds, gardening especially flowers, enjoying the sun, watching TV. and playing with her kindle.
She had a smile that brightened a room and just made you feel good. Over the years she was a steadfast friend to many and would give the shirt off her back to help you. To usher children, she was our rock. We always knew she loved us with all that she was. She was a generous spirit giving more than she had on many
occasions. She taught her children to be givers by example. She attended Jefferson Christian Church and knew Jesus as Lord and Savior. Susan didn't have an easy life but she managed to get back up when being knocked down throughout it all. She survived many brushes with death over the years. We her family, were so blessed to have been given the
time God allowed uswith her. She is greatly missed to say the very least. She has gained Heaven and Heaven has gained her. We always parted ways by hugging, saying sweet dreams and love you. To this, I add till we meet again. This life is but a blink in eternity. We are here to love one another.Give a compliment, make a meal, lend a helping hand. A simple gesture could leave a lasting mark on someone and change
their life for the better, a ripple effect that lives on. My mom practiced these principles and taught this to her children by example.Make sure you let your loved ones know how you feel because you never know when they will be called home. I have the peace of knowing my mom knew I loved her as deeply as I could love anyone. Now she knows the even deeper love God gives.
At my mom's request there will be no services. She chose to be cremated and to be returned to me her daughter. In lieu of flowers, take a moment and remember a funny memory or time spent with my mom. She wanted no tears just happy memories. Life is to be celebrated and shehas moved on to a higher living.
I know there are many stories out there and I would love to hear some if you want to leave them on the funeral home condolences page for her. If you prefer you can send me your memory/story to 82 Abigails Cir., Jefferson NH 03583. Thank you.
