Susan "Susie" Selleck Memorial Fund

Susan was born in Willimantic Connecticut on Nov. 5, 1943.  While in Connecticut Susan worked for Stop & Shop Supermarket for more than twenty years and then went on to purchasing, renovating and flipping old homes.

In 1989 she came to Port Charlotte for the winter with a girlfriend and loved it so much she decided to make it her home. She obtained her real estate license and lived there until she retired to Hiawassee Georgia in 2006. She loved her retirement and living in the mountains. She had a great love for nature, animals and the many friends she had in the area.

Susie had a passion for life, a love for others and a contagious smile. She was known for making intricate pine needle baskets and was a member and past president of the Shooting Creek Basket Weavers Guild. She also enjoyed her card and book clubs although it is believed she liked socializing at the clubs more than reading the books or playing the card games. Susie also loved history and was involved in the creation of the Sunshine Selleck Genealogy Club. She was a member of Unity Church of the Mountains in Blairsville Georgia where she served on the hospitality committee and was known to throw the best church picnics ever.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to the Susan Selleck Memorial Fund at the Charlotte Community Foundation, 227 Sullivan St. Punta Gorda FL 33950.
