Susan Eileen D'Herde

Died: Wednesday, September 08, 2004
Age: 54
Susan Eileen D’Herde, a 28-year resident of Grosse Pointe Woods, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2004, in the presence of her family at St. John Hospital in Detroit.

Susan celebrated her 54th birthday this year, along with 35 years of marriage to her surviving husband, Joseph. She was the loving mother of two children, Edward Joseph and Jeannette Lea. Susan enjoyed a caring relationship with her daughter-in-law, Patricia, and shared the role of grandmother to Stephanie, Kristin, Andrew and Alyssa Tobin.

She was the youngest in her family, born to Leona and the late Omer Marcotte, and survived by her brothers James (Diane), Michael (RoseAnne), Robert, and her sisters Marion, Dorothy and Barbara (Douglas). Susan was blessed with the honor of being a godmother to many of her siblings’ children, a role she cherished in her heart.

Susan, born and raised in Detroit, graduated from East Catholic High School in 1968. She was a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker Schweitzer Real Estate, and a well-liked manager for Mobil Oil Corp. In May of 1998, Susan fulfilled a longtime dream of owning her own flower shop. A Floral Leaf was her dream, and Susan spent her days at the shop forging a strong and respecting relationship with all of her customers.

Susan was an avid reader, self-taught seamstress, but most of all a woman with a tremendous heart. This showed in her role of “second mom” to many family friends. Those touched by her life will remember her fondly.

Memorial services will be announced at a future date. Memorial donations can be made to the Gift of Life or the Humane Society of Detroit.
