Katherine Fox (Ryan) Lanham and Thomas E. (Deborah) Fox; dear sister-in-law of Mary Anne McGuire, Stephen T. (Sarah) McGuire and John P. McGuire; fond aunt of many nieces and nephews. Susan was born on March 6, 1958 in Evanston, Illinois. She grew up in Clarendon Hills and Hinsdale graduating from Hinsdale Central High School in 1976. She attended Ripon College in Wisconsin and graduated in 1980. She met Matt while both worked in the Government Bond Department at Harris Bank. They married in June of 1990 and moved to Hinsdale in January of 1991. Susan has always felt lucky to be the mother of three wonderful boys and has said many times that she really loved being a part of their teenage years. She was an accomplished photographer and enjoyed taking pictures at all her son's games and events. She also loved to read, travel and cook. Another of her favorite activities was to gather with a group of friends on Monday evenings to watch Dancing With the Stars. Susan was very active in the community and her son's schools. She served on the boards of The Community House in Hinsdale and the Wayne and Helen Fox Community Center in West Chicago. She was very involved with the Union Church Preschool Programs and at Madison School. At Madison School she started, edited and produced the first school newspaper helping boost the skills of many budding journalists, comic strip artists and sports reporters. Susan had a great sense of humor and was fond of saying, "It's all about me!!" but in fact it was really all about the people she loved.
