Then she moved to Wheaton, IL, where she worked for Scripture Press and taught a Sunday School class at the Wheaton Bible Church. During later years she led Bible studies in her home. Scripture was very important to Susan, and she would always quote a cherished verse or psalm at family gatherings. She also enjoyed raising African violets, doing flower arrangements for shut-ins, making pressed flower cards, crocheting, and making baby blankets for her grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends. In 1988 she became a resident of Chapel View Apartments in Hopkins, MN, where she was active in Bible studies, ceramic classes and visiting those who were sick and bed ridden.
