Susan J. Haldeman, 92, of Manheim, went home to be with Jesus on Saturday, October 23, 2021. She was the daughter of the late David S. and Katie Greiner Hollinger, and the loving wife of the late Lloyd I. Haldeman (decd. 2016). A 1948 graduate of Elizabethtown High School, Susan went on to be a dedicated homemaker and served 18 years at JC Penney before retiring in 1992.
Serving her Lord and others was the foundation of her life, the fruit of which was evident to all who knew her.

Other volunteer activities include serving as a member of the Mastersonville Fire Company, the Manheim Historical Society, and the Pleasant View Communities Spiritual Department where she enjoyed story writing and public speaking. But above all, giving her love and time to her beloved children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren was the joy of her life.
