Our neighbor and friend Susan Johnson passed away on February 9th.
Read her beautiful obituary here:
Robert and I got to know Susan and her husband Fred (who passed away a few years ago) when we moved from the southside of Savannah to the downtown historic district, just off Washington Square.
Susan was a beloved Savannah teacher and author.
Robert and I were fortunate enough to be married in the courtyard of one of those crooked little houses — the beautifully tiny house on Saint Julian Street where Susan and Fred lived—after they sailed the world and settled in Savannah, that is.
A while after Fred passed, Susan cornered us in the square one day and heralded us to her little house.
“Robert, I want you to have Fred’s old cashmere overcoat.”
It smells of adventure, travel and a life well lived.
We loved and love you, Susan Johnson. Tell Fred we said hello and miss his glorious stories.
