Celebrating the life of
Susan "Susie" King
Passed away on September 02, 2023
Susan ‘Susie’ King of Savannah, GA, age 83, died on Saturday September 2, 2023. Born Susan Cadle in Indianapolis, IN on March 25, 1940, Susie graduated from Indianapolis’s Shortridge High School in 1958, and then with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi in 1962. She met future husband Frank King (then a naval officer) on the tennis courts of St. Simons Island, and they were married in September 1963. She and Frank raised children Jeff, Scott and Allison primarily in East Windsor, NJ, where she was a beloved elementary school teacher and administrator for generations of local kids. After leaving NJ, she became the director of a Chicago area children’s museum, and then the admissions director for a California private school whose enrollment more than doubled during her tenure. Susie retired to The Landings at Skidaway Island in 1997 and spent an amazing 26 years forming scores of wonderful friendships and positively impacting the Savannah community. Her many volunteer efforts included work with P.E.O. International, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the Children’s Hospital of Savannah. At The Landings, she was former head of the New Neighbors organization and hosted countless fund-raising events. She enjoyed meeting her many friends for coffee and bridge, trading stories about grandchildren, and travelling to visit friends and family. She is deeply missed by husband Frank, children Jeff, Scott and Allison, and grandchildren Francie and Charlie, who called her Mimi. The outpouring of love and support during her difficult illness attests to the number of lives she touched during her many years in Savannah.
A memorial service is being planned for Fall 2023.

I am so sorry to hear of Susie’s passing. She was one of the first people I met at The Landings and remained a friend forever. Susie and Frank opened their home for so many events and made all feel so welcome. I will miss our annual “catch up” via Christmas cards. God speed, Susie

Our most sincere condolences to Frank, Jeff, Scott and Allison. Susie was a most delightful, up-beat and considerate person whom we enjoyed knowing. We are sure she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. We are so thankful for the recent opportunity to have renewed contact a few months ago in Pittsburgh at her granddaughter Francie's graduation affair.

Heart broken. Susie was the glue that held together our monthly New Neighbors board breakfast for guessing 23 years. She really cared about us and we treasure our shared friendship that she beautifully nurtured. She will be so missed.

Jeannie and I spent a decade at American Express knowing, traveling, and socializing with Frank and Suzie. They were a great, friendly, and engaging couple whose love for one another was transparent and inspiring. Their relationship was a blessing to each and to all who knew them. We know that Suzie rests in peace with the Lord and wish Frank can find strength in those wonderful memories.
