She was a passionate arts advocate and arts creator throughout her life, often mixing artistic disciplines such as blues music, puppetry and visuals to reveal her progressive vision to adults and children.

Throughout her career, Susan shared her love of dance with children, teaching in Guilford County Schools and Winston Salem - Forsyth County Schools. She served as Arts Administrator for Roanoke City Schools through a grants program. Along with her husband, Susan recently co-owned and operated Loco for Coco Gourmet Chocolates from 2012-2020. Spencer wishes to thank Susan’s caregivers, Hospice team, and numerous friends and family for their loving support of one of the kindest and most positive people to have walked this earth. Many others including classmates, fellow workers, artists and students were glad to have shared the world with her.
