Susan A. Freece, age 74, of Milwaukie, Oregon, peacefully passed away November 28th, after a five plus year battle with symptoms associated with Corticobasal Degeneration Syndrome. She was surrounded by family and will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
Susan was born July 22, 1948 in Longview, Washington to Wilbur and Lorraine Traglio. Later she and her family moved to Aurora, Oregon where she graduated high school. After graduation she obtained her beautician cosmetology license.

In addition to a career as a beautician, she went on to work in a variety of other settings most recently in the accounting field before retiring in 2016.
