Susan A Coleman was born February 6, 1949 and resided in Blacksburg, VA with her devoted husband Bernard L Mayr.
Susan has, in her own memorable style, danced her way off this mortal coil and is twinkling brightly above us……
Susan has often been referred to as a force of nature, which is so fitting because for many years her spirit was drawn to earth based traditions, observance of the seasonal cycles of the earth, and the corresponding cycles of life. Susan used her considerable intellectual talent and research skills to explore whatever sparked her interest, whether starting her own soap-making business, making quilts for her grandchildren, writing a novel, or acting as a fearless advocate for patient rights.
All in Susan’s life surely have tales to tell of the sister, the daughter, the mom, the aunt, the grandmother! There is much cause for celebration and joy, to have experienced this bit of the journey of life with Susan, sadness too, of course, as she steps off of this path and onto another part of the journey. We fondly remember the belly laughs, the silliness, the fondness, the fun, the dancing, the singing, the love; the good times and the bad; the scary and the sad.
She leaves to cherish her sweet memories, son, Michael Bolling and wife Carrie, Step-daughter Ericka Deemer and husband Steve, Step-son Bernard Mayr Jr. Mother, Mary Coleman Brown. Sisters, Margo Miller and Betsey Gibson. Brother, Phillip Coleman. 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
