Susan I. Lord • October 2, 2017
Born May 26, 1952 in Lakeland CA, she was a military kid, coming to Pensacola at the age of 11.
She resided here for the remainder of her life. After a fall and brief illness, God took her home to be with him on October 2, 2017 to watch over her family and special friends from another place. She was a gregarious person always giving of herself and a competitor from a very young age, this is why she was a 15 year Breast Cancer Survivor.
A New York Yankee fan, she became while in middle school, then the Miami Dolphins followed. She played softball with the Pensacola Road Runners/Suburban Realty and other various teams in the area.
With her loving family by her side earlier that day, she leaves behind her parents Harold R. Lord, Sr. and Rose Lord; her siblings Linda Edler (Jim), Harold R. Lord Jr., Alexis (Bill); Nephews Jimmy (Wendy), Nathan (Margaret), and three great nephews, Trey, Anderson, and Graham Edler. But most importantly she leaves behind her four-legged daughter, Danielle, the heart of her life for us to cherish and love for the rest of her life. Susan was met at Rainbow Bridge by her other family, Bud, Little Bud, Princess, Jocko and Yukon (Danielle’s brother) Barbara McCullough was her lifelong friend and was always by her side guiding her through everyday life. Thank you so much for this comfort Barbara. She worked at First American Bank, Borden’s Dairy, UPS, Solutia, and Pall Corp. Family is so grateful for the care she received in her final days, Baptist Hospital, Shands in Gainesville, and West Florida Hospital after less than a week. But since she was not as young as she always thought it was too much for her body to repair. Tired and worn out God blessed us with knowing that she is no longer in the pain she was or would have to continue to endure for the rest of her life.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Humane Society or Breast Cancer Awareness in her name is what she would want.
A Visitation will be held at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 1pm until the service starts at 2pm.
