I am sadden to hear about Susie's passing. My little brother and her grandson started Cub scouts together and also school. My grandmother and her were doing the same things raising their grandsons. They said their goal was to get them boys grown and they did just that. My grandmother also passed away week as well. Heaven is getting two of the rares roses that walk this planet. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I was saddened to see where Mrs. Foley died. Gazing at the objects on her desk and her down to earth smile made paying my SEPCO a little less painful. My condolences to the family.

I am so sorry to hear about Suzie's passing. I met Suzie on a few of the Marine Corps League Detachment's events, Marine Corps Birthday Breakfast at the Pancake House, and at our Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. Suzie was so fun to talk to. She always had a smile and nice things to say about everyone. She will be missed. George, you have the support of the entire detachment, if you need anything, please reach out.

To the family of Susie Foley. God saw the road was getting rough. The hill was hard to climb. He gently closed those loving eyes and whispered peace be thine. Servant of God. Your job was well done. The battle is fought. The victory is won. May God continue to strengthen you all. It was a pleasure working with Susie at Savannah Electric and Power Company.

She will be missed. She was so great and caring. Always treated me as one of her own.

- Tonja R Linton, Savannah, GA

Susie was a beautiful person with a heart of gold. I will always remember her funny sayings and smile. She never met a stranger and would treat everyone she met like family. I so enjoyed the years we worked together at Savannah Electric. I always considered her to be a very close and dear friend. My prayers are with her family now and in the weeks, months ahead. I pray Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus". I love you and miss you my dear friend. -Until we meet again, Liz
