Susanne was born on October 06, 1946 in New York City the daughter of the late Bobby and Mattie (King) Donaldson. Susanne grew up in New York and graduated from high school there. She worked after high school in administration for AFl-CIO and NABET-CWA UNIONS.
Susanne, as the matriarch of her family, led by example. She set the bar incredibly high as a mother and she raised two successful sons. Singing, music, travel and dancing were her interests. Although Susanne was extremely proud of her Gospel Music Award and a Gospel Music Album; her great pride and love were her two sons. Her son, Aaron said that his mother was always working hard and hustling. Their home was filled with family and friends. He remembers in the 1970’s friends being there for Pearl Parties and there was always constant laughter and fun. Susanne was never afraid to try new things. Susanne was a strong Christian and member of Emmanuel Baptist Church and she was kind and always caring for others.
Susanne was the loving mother of Aaron D. Roberts of Eagle River, Alaska and Ronald Roberts of Franklin Lakes, N.J. She was the proud grandmother of 7 grandchildren.
Services will be held on Monday November 16 at the Emmanuel Baptist Church 20 Hillside Ave. Malden. A period of visitation will be held from 10:30 to 11am with the Funeral Service at 11am. Arrangements by the Murphy OHara Funeral Home 519 Broadway Everett.
