Susan F. (Geddes) Love, age 73 years, of Stoughton, peacefully passed away unexpectedly surrounded by family and beloved friends on Monday July 27, 2015.
Raised in Hingham, the daughter of the late Dorothy (Campbell) Geddes and H. Paul Geddes Sr., sister of H. Paul Geddes Jr. (Natick, MA) and niece of the late Jean Campbell, Mary Elizabeth Campbell and Raymond F. Campbell. A graduate of Hingham High School, Susan attended The Chandler School for Women in Boston and pursued a career in office administration. Soon after graduation, Susan married Robert Bruce Love (Weymouth, MA) and raised their family of four children in Stoughton: Merideth Scott Love (Hull, MA), Matthew Ryan Love (Weymouth, MA), Robert Sean Love (Nantucket, MA), and Michael Thor Love (New York, NY).
Blessed with an immense heart, a warm, caring, engaging personality, and a beautiful "gift to gab", she made friends wherever she went. She enjoyed the ocean and loved visiting her daughter Merideth and soon to be son in-law Jeffrey Shaheen, and "Grand Dog" Cisco at Nantasket Beach. She also regularly enjoyed visiting her son Sean and girlfriend Shannon and her "Grand Dog" Cash on Nantucket Island. Susan was fortunate to have enjoyed world travel with her daughter and friends. Constantly surrounded by family and friends, she shared her caring ways, nurturing soul, and loving heart. Susan was a spit fire. Bursting with energy, full of life, she loved to be around people. She was a straight shooter, as honest as it gets. She was full of laughter, and hilarious to those who knew her. She had a way to laugh it off and move on with her day. She exemplified the true meaning of unconditional love. We have lost an amazing person, but have gained an angel.
She was awesome!
