Susan F. Lawrence (nee Johnson), 94, a resident of Hoffman Estates for 11 years and formerly of Monticello, New York was born on July 6, 1922 in Jamaica, West Indies, to the late Miriam Johnson and the late Uriah Johnson, and passed away on December 29, 2016 at her daughter’s home. Susan loved to cook, especially Jamaican cuisine, and was an avid fan of the Wheel of Fortune or as she called it, the “Money Show”. You could always hear her singing Calypso, Jamaican and church songs. She enjoyed travelling the country with her son-in-law and daughter to places like Connecticut and Philadelphia.

Susan was the adoring wife of the late Balfore Lawrence; loving mother of Novlyn Smith, Daphne (Owen) Thompson, Jean (Dudley) Ferguson and Fay (John) Cobb; proud grandmother of Omar Ferguson, Denise Ferguson, Dionne Ferguson, Sheryl Nichols, Craig Cobb, Sophia Lewis-Kimmey, Roy Smith, Errol Wright, Maurice Smith, Lester Smith, Sylvan Smith, Michelle Marsh, Camille Wright and Berris Smith; dear sister of the late David Johnson, the late Richard Johnson, the late Charlie Johnson, the late Johnathan Johnson and the late Marian Johnson; friend to many. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.
