Susan Ann Goodrow 1948-2020

There aren’t words to express how many lives and hearts Susan touched, she worked every day to improve the lives and circumstances of those around her; she will be deeply missed and never forgotten and the world is poorer for her loss. She was a strong, stubborn, kind, hardworking, self-sacrificing, beautiful soul, a “Jane of all trades” she cared deeply for others.

Susan is survived by Todd Richards her husband of 27 years, her daughter Amanda Gribben-Gleason (Jamie), her granddaughters Caoimhe and Tobaira, her brothers “Butch” (Laurie) and Kent (Denise) and their families.

A native New Yorker, Susan passed away at home on June 26, 2020. Susan graduated from SUNY Plattsburg, became a teacher then moved on to a career in Social Work helping children and families with true passion. Susan was a gardener with a deep tie to nature, a painter and an avid reader.

Susans graveside service will be held Friday July 3, 2020 at 11 a.m. at Mound Hill Cemetery in Nicholville.
