Please keep her family, and our PCSO family, in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Susie will be laid to rest at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 6, 2015, at Crestview Baptist Church in Lakeland.
Susie became a part of the PCSO family when PCSO and Polk County Animal Control merged in 2002 – she was an animal control enforcement officer. Over time, Susie decided to become a deputy sheriff, and went to the law enforcement academy. She was sworn in as a PCSO deputy sheriff in September 2006. Susie has been assigned to the Southeast District night shift patrol (Lake Wales area) since that time, and has grown very close to her shift members. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. She fought bravely and maintained the positive spirit for which she was known, throughout her battle with this deadly disease.
