Susan Dolores Prevatte Todd-Adame

Susan Dolores Prevatte Todd-Adame passed away on Thursday, May 19, 2022, in the comfort of her beloved beach home surrounded by the ones she loved and who loved her. Susan was 91 years old when she went home to her Lord, although she didn’t look a day over 25. Susan fought a strong and graceful fight against cancer for nearly 10 years, never allowing her sickness to keep her down or change the way she lived every day. Even on her hardest days she rose every morning, did her makeup, fixed her hair and took on the day with that Hollywood smile on her face.
