In Memory

Susan Robertson (Horton)

On Monday, March 3, 2003, Susan Leigh Robertson Horton won her battle! She began her new life with the Lord she loved and served. Susan was a Raleigh native, where she graduated from Sanderson High School and North Carolina State University. Susan's professional career covering 24 years was with AT&T. Susan was Area Manager for National Projects and received numerous recognitions including two Golden Boy Awards for outstanding performance. She recently completed work for her certification as Professional Project Manager.

Susan was married to Kenneth Johnson Horton in 1997, who survives her. She is also survived by her mother, Sue Coltrane Robertson; her sister, Lucinda Robertson Corry.

She is predeceased by her father, Jack H. Robertson and her brother, Jack H. Robertson Jr.

Susan witnessed to her faith in a happy and loving way. She faced her illness with serenity as she shared her vision of victorious living. She was not afraid of death, because she saw it as an open door that lead to a new and different life for her, and she shared this vision with groups and individuals. She talked and laughed as one who knew first hand the adventure she faced and she tried to get those she loved to catch her vision as well. She would want from those who loved her, not sad and mournful remembrance of her time of illness and suffering, but joyful and happy recollection of the good days and the memorable moments. She leaves us with a joyful thanksgiving and the fact that all is well.
