    Susie was a wonderful, compassionate and giving person. It was an honor to know and work with her at Wilson Foods. She was a true friend of our entire family and held a special place in the hearts of so many others. Her dedication to animals and the lives she saved exemplifies her personality. She was a special person and will be missed. May God bless the Bennett family during this most difficult time.

    The number of lives she has touched….both furry and not furry. She was a gem and I will never forget her. I met her when I enrolled our new puppy, Josie the Goldendoodle, in her full course to become a therapy dog. Susie’s ‘gift’ continues to give to others through Josie. I will always listen for.’Sit your dog!’ When I step into PetSmart…and I will continue to smile. Condolences to Susie’s family. She was a blessing to many.

    Susie, you were a wonderful lady. You are greatly missed. You are now pain free and with Jerry. We sure do miss you so much. Training class was so hard yesterday. Sending my condolences to your family.

    Susie was an amazing dog trainer who touched many lives. Her classes were informative and fun! She cheered for each one of us as our dogs mastered a skill. Her friendship was a gift that I will dearly miss. My condolences to her family.
