"When Susie served on the Reynolds Institute on Aging at UAMS, she quickly became my favorite Board member! Her smile and personality could literally light up the room - and she would cheerfully help with any task we had. It was a pleasure to work with her. I particularly enjoyed her random visits to my office and our generally hilarious conversations. Susie always had the coolest "tennis shoes" and she seemed to delight in keeping up with her grandchildren where fashion was concerned. She spoke so lovingly of her family - Maggie, she adored you. I loved Susie Pugh - it was easy to do - and I miss her. You will all remain in my thoughts. Fondly, Marsha Hines "
