Susan’s life was centered around her family; she was a true matriarch who built a family foundation of love that only she could foster. She was very creative and often made her own artwork. She grew up on a farm where she gained a love for animals, especially horses. She always had pet dogs that she spoiled rotten including Brutus, her beloved Yorkie she leaves behind. Those who knew her well will remember Susan’s feisty spirit, her kind heart, and soft touch. Susan was of the Baptist faith.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Michael Dennis Cartwright, in 1986, her father, Boyce Taylor Hyde, in 1986, and her son, Matthew Taylor Cartwright, in 2012.
