Susan L. (Norris) Filer, 68, of Pittsburgh, formerly of North Huntingdon, died Wednesday February 5, 2020. She was born May 15, 1951 in Pittsburgh, a daughter of the late Lee and Jean (Calmus) Norris and was also preceded in death by a sister Pamela Mitall.

Susan was a caregiver in the healthcare field, but she devoted her life to raising her three children and, in recent years, “Grammy” delighted in helping to lovingly care for her five beautiful grandchildren. When not spending time with her family, she treasured time with numerous close friends, including card club, shared meals, and fun travels.

Whether family, friend, or stranger, Susan had a smile, warm hug, and kind word for every person who crossed her path. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Irwin.

She is survived by her children Jason (Tara) Filer of Franklin Park, Brian (Erin) Filer of Ross Township, and Laura Filer of Mt. Lebanon; her 5 grandchildren Hazel, Elsie, Simon, Jude, and Dylan Filer; siblings Michelle Norris of Pittsburgh, Sharon Clauson of MN, and Dennis Kennedy of TX; also nieces and nephews as well as countless friends. Family and friends will be received from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Saturday at the William Snyder Funeral Home, 521 Main Street, Irwin. A funeral service will follow at 1 p.m. in First Presbyterian Church, with Dr. Ronald H. Wakeman, officiating.
