    I am so sad to hear about Susan. I will always remember her wonderful laugh, her great sense of style and her kindness. My thoughts and prayers to all of you, especially her beautiful daughters; Hayley and Liz.

    Obituary Correction: The insurance company Susan worked for was NASE, (National Association for the Salf-Employed) NOT “Susan Ashleman”.

    Hello Lorraine Johnson, this is Susan’s sister, Patti…Susan always remembered you fondly, as well. Thank you for your kind comments.

    I remember stirring up trouble with Susan when we were kids in Omaha. She also taught me what a salad spinner was when she came to my home when I was in the Navy in San Diego. She was a sweetheart.

      Hi Barb,
      I don’t know why I am only seeing your note now and it’s February 2016. I guess I should have checked back sooner, but I would have thought I would have gotten some kind of notice. I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner because I would have replied!! How good to hear from you! I would love to talk to you if you’d like to catch up. Please email me at I’d really love to talk to you. Scott and I were just talking about you and your family the other day.
