Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Susan Margaret Bandrowsky, 74, of Kennesaw, GA passed away on December 21, 2021.
Originally from Akron, Ohio, Susan was born to loving parents, John and Margaret. It was a close family with 5 children. Susan was the eldest child with 4 brothers; however, she would emphasize that she was the youngest girl. She graduated from St. Vincent High School in Akron and eventually worked for many years with Columbian Chemicals importing carbon black. As a single mother, she worked tirelessly and also sold real estate to make ends meet. Providing for and putting others first was ingrained in her nature.
In her late 30s, Susan left her loved ones in Ohio and courageously accepted a job transfer to the Atlanta area to provide a better future for herself and her son. She later furthered her education at Kennesaw State University, engaged in entrepreneurial endeavors, and ultimately finished her career working many years as a paralegal.
She was a bibliophile with a variety of other interests including photography, music, gardening, cooking, spending time at the beach, and finding great deals. She often used the last skill to acquire items for the benefit of others. She was active over the years in a variety of community organizations and clubs.
Susan is survived by her son, Brian, two granddaughters Genevieve and Josephine, Brothers John (Cathy), Paul (Debbie), Frank (Becky), and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. She now joins her dearly missed parents and her brother David who have passed before her.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2 pm on January 8, 2022 at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 2855 Briarcliff Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329. In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting the St. Catherine of Siena St. Vincent de Paul Society or the American Heart Association.
