Susan Elizabeth Keiser-Smith


Susan Elizabeth Keiser-Smith

November 12, 1969 – July 27, 2020

Dazzling life-force.  Infectiously joyous soul.  Fearless adventurer.  Smart, funny, kind, and so many other wondrous things.  Resolute in her convictions.  An inspiring example.  Lover of family, friends, music, food, and fun.  Unwavering believer.  Best friend EVER.  A treasure to everyone who knew her.  And the fiercest fighter of cancer.  Full, forever, of faith, trust and pixie dust.

Susan’s light will shine on in her parents Jim and Pam Keiser, sister Kim and family (Randall McCutcheon, Lane, Keiser, Teague, Harrison and Neve) and brother Jimmy (Christe McGarry), husband Steve Smith, son Parker, numerous extended family members—in-laws, aunts , uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and also her extended chosen family of close friends (a few of whom cannot go unmentioned—Robin, The Watermelon Sisters, Chrissy/Darrin & Heather).

Those wishing to honor her life should do so by living theirs, by giving back in any way personally meaningful, and/or by donation to either of the two organizations below, to which she dedicated so much of her love and time.

Food Rescue US (Columbus):  https://secure.givelively.org//donate/food-rescue-us/susan-keiser-smith

Central Ohio Youth for Christ:  http://www.coyfc.org/how/give/

A celebration of life will be held when it can be done the way she’d imagine it—large, lively, full of music and love (and zero social distancing).  Please visit www.OhioCremation.org to leave her family an online condolence.

    I met susan thru soccer. We were not close but almost everyone knew her. And she always smiled! She was a light. She would have parker and mojo w her at outdoor. And of course was a great soccer player who played w passion and great skill and speed! She was kind and always positive. She will surely be missed. I’m so sorry to you her family, to her friends and to all who love susan. My deepest sympathy to you all.
