The Fundraiser Has Officially Ended

I feel very proud of having raised over $3,500 for 3 great Marquette charities: Superior Health Foundation, Cancer Care of Marquette County, and Care Clinic of Marquette. I want to thank LaDolce Video for the website,  and Pride Printing for all their help. Thank you to all those who purchased Susan’s Artwork to make this Fundraiser a success.

August 30, 2021, Susan would have been 60 years old. I wish she was here to celebrate it with me. When the Fundraiser ended I was hoping I would get some closure, but I still miss her. The world is a far more empty place without her. Her intellect, beauty, light and laughter is missed by all who knew her. 

Susan left behind more than 75 paintings and picture frames. To honor her, I am having this Memorial Fundraising Art Sale. Certainly, Susan would be thrilled to see the sale of her artworks, and to donate 100% of the profits, to directly benefit those in need in the Upper Peninsula. I have priced Susan’s art based on the prices she sold them. By purchasing her artwork, your support will help me bequeath the funds to Cancer Care of Marquette County, and the Superior Health Foundation, who will benefit from this event.  

  My sincere hope is even more money will be contributed in addition to each sale! The more funds we raise, the more people will be helped in Susan’s name!

To get to know Susan better, you can click on the “About Susan” tab above, and by watching her video on this page. The music on this video were worship songs that Susan requested to be played at her Memorial. I never knew that those were Susan’s favorite worship songs. I hope you enjoy this video I put together to honor her memory.
