Susan was born in Germany on June 2, 1927, and immigrated to the United States after World War II. Susan had worked as a lunch lady in the New York Public School System. Nature found her best friend in Susan.

Susan enjoyed hiking and growing her own vegetables and flowers, just to name a few. In her spare time, she also enjoyed sewing and cooking for her family and friends.

Susan is predeceased by her parents, her husband Carl Boyer, her brother Peter, her sister Marianne, and her son-in-law Walter Dziengelewski. She is survived by her daughter Vivian Dziengelewski of Southwick, MA.
