She attended the University of Oklahoma and graduated from Sam Houston State in 1965 with a degree in Home Economics. Susan continued her collegiate education and earned her master’s degree from the University of Texas San Antonio.
After graduation, Susan joined Montgomery Ward to start and foster their Home Fashion Forum, a program offering decorating courses to the public. She impacted the lives of many students teaching Home Economic Cooperative Education at MacArthur High School in San Antonio for 35 years. She was active in the Bexar County Home Economics Cooperative Education Association, the Vocational Home Economics Teachers of Texas and the Future Homemakers of America.
