She was the oldest of five children. The Turners were a very close knit military family that moved often. Suzanne attended elementary school in Germany and Ohio. She graduated from Randolph High School located on Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. While at Randolph, she was very actively involved in school activities such as Student Council Secretary, concert choir, theater production, varsity cheerleading, homecoming court and voted Sweetheart Ball Queen. Following high school, she attended Kansas State University where she studied Fashion Merchandising. While at Kansas State, she became a proud sister of Pi Beta Phi sorority, a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon “Little Sisters of Minerva”, a yearbook “beauty nominee”, a varsity cheerleader and was crowned Military Ball Queen. During her freshman year she took a chance on a blind date suggested by a sorority sister and met a guy named Bobby Nichols, who, as it turned out, became the luckiest and most blessed guy in the world. On June 17, 1967, Sue and Bob were married in a military ceremony in the chapel of McConnel Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas and set out on a lifetime adventure.

The family moved in 1972 to Atlanta, GA shortly after the birth of their daughter Kimberly. They bought their first home in Marietta, GA and live there still some 50 years later. A son, Rob, was born in 1979 and from that moment on, it was all kids all the time. Sue loved taking Kim to dance classes and performances and attending all of Rob’s athletic events. She was excited to get to replay all of that with the arrival of her adored grandchildren, Nick & Carsen. Along with family, Sue found time to be a highly successful business woman.
