Susan was a devout Catholic and a parishioner of the former St. John the Baptist Church. Her love for God and her beautiful heart showed in the generosity of the many organizations that she contributed to.
In 1972 Susan married the love of her life, Lewis MacNeil. They would share twenty one years of marriage, until Lewis' passing in 1993.
"Sue and Lew" loved to travel, especially enjoying the outdoors on their boat in Sacandaga, or taking yearly vacations to Wells Beach, Maine.
Susan will be remembered for her strong faith, her strong will, and generosity.
Susan is predeceased by her parents, William and Margaret (Moolick) Joos, her husband, Lewis MacNeil, a brother William Joos, two sisters, Marguerite Porter and Marion Plaus, stepdaughter-in-law, Penny MacNeil and a grandson, Eric MacNeil.
