“Sue and I often lived in the same commune in Redwood Valley and worked on the same projects - the files and mailing lists. She was a very hard worker and always put forth her best effort to learn a job and do it well. She was thoughtful, but also made sure to get her opinions heard. She wasn't silent about her complaints and felt self-confident enough to bring them to the attention of others to get them fixed. She was determined that Jonestown should be the best it could be. I liked her a lot because she pushed for these improvements.” - Laura Johnston Kohl

“Susan and I were in the same class in junior high in a suburb of Indianapolis. She was somewhat withdrawn. I believe she had no friends, being new to the school district. I don't believe that anyone in our class got to know Susan before she transferred to another school following either 7th or 8th grade. A rather large girl, she was subject to being mocked a little. Interestingly her appearance changed very little, if at all, between the 7th grade and the photos on this Web page. I don't recall Susan ever wearing anything but a shirtwaist dress with a belt and brogan shoes, neither of which would have been considered stylish for a girl her age, not even in those days before the Internet and social media created the unfortunate peer pressure under which today's teens struggle toward adulthood.” - Ron Miller
