Born on January 13, 1942, in New Iberia to Paul Elliot Taylor and Gertrude Conrad Taylor, Susan is preceded in death her parents and her brother, Elliot Dwight Taylor.

A delight of Susan's later years was the inclusion of a loving Labradoodle "Midge" into her family.

A native of New Iberia, Louisiana, Susan attended New Iberia High School and later pursued her passion for education at Louisiana State University, where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education (Mathematics). A committed student, Susan was a member of several honor societies, including Alpha Lambda Delta, Mu Sigma Rho, and the Louisiana Beta chapter of Pi Beta Pi.

On June 29, 1963, Susan was united in marriage with her loving husband, Raymond "Ray" Pellerin. Together, they built a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. Susan dedicated ten years of her professional career teaching mathematics and physics at Breaux Bridge High School.

Beyond her academic pursuits and dedication to teaching, Susan possessed a vibrant zest for life. She excelled as a golfer and skier, displaying remarkable skill on the slopes and the fairways. Susan's adventurous spirit extended to her love for travel, with family vacations to Vail, Colorado and Tan-Tar-A, Missouri, with her extended New Orleans family including Sue and Norvin Pellerin. Susan obtained a pilot's license, fulfilling her desire to soar through the skies. She also adored fast, convertible sports cars.
