My sympathy to your family in the passing of Susan. We attended school together from 4th grade through graduation and I always found her to be a kind and caring friend with a unique laugh and beautiful smile. We'll miss her at our BHS reunions. Prayers of comfort as you deal with this loss.

To John and Family our hearts were broken when we heard the news. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She deeply loved her family and friends. I know she is with the Lord, Mom and Dad. Especially with Earl. She’ll be deeply missed God Bless.

Even when we were small children together, Susan was an "old soul" who never seemed to doubt her place in the world. Later, while I wondered from place to place, career to career, and even once from husband to husband, Susan remained steadfastly on course, devoting herself to her family, her friends, her church, and her community. Only she could have filled the shoes of our beloved grandmother as matriarch of our family - and she did it seamlessly, with love and grace. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Saddened to hear of Susan's passing, and my heart goes our to Eloise, John, and all of the family. I met Susan in late 1958 when my family moved to Barboursville and my brother and I began attending Steele Memorial. Susan's parents, Earl and Eloise, were our MYF counselors and hosted many get-togethers at their home. They took me and my good friend, Danny Swanson, under their wing and became semi-surrogate parents for the rest of our high school years. I had many a delicious meal at the Altizer home and Earl used to love to take me and Danny fishing up to Lake Forked Run and give us a fishing lesson. He and Eloise would also find little projects for us to do around their yard just so they could send a little money our way. If Susan ever resented her parents' attention to us, she never showed it, and knowing her as the kind and generous soul she was, I believe she whole-heartedly approved of it. Susan was the embodiment of the phrase "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree". She will certainly be missed, but she leaves a great legacy. We are all better people for having known her.
