Mrs. Susan Miller Lovell, of Bloomington, Indiana, died on December 26, 2021 at IU Health Bloomington Hospital after a brief illness. She was born on April 30, 1946 in Madison, Indiana, to the late Earl Miller, Jr. and Mary Catherine (Scheser) Miller. She was 75 years old.
Susan was a 1964 graduate of Lee High School in Huntsville, Alabama. She attended Indiana University with a focus on Sociology. Susan married Roy Lee Lovell of Madison, Indiana on September 9, 1966 at St Michael’s Church in Madison. Susan was a proud mother of two sons – Marshall Brian and Matthew David.
After a brief stint in Madison, Susan and Roy settled in Bloomington to raise their family. Susan worked for 30 years at the Indiana University Student Health Center. An area of her work she was most proud of was her involvement in assisting sexual assault victims, where she took great pride providing guidance through the process of health education and available next steps. She kept in touch with many of her patients over the years, which shows the impact she had on those she helped.
Susan was an avid fan and season ticket holder of Indiana University Men’s Basketball for almost 50 years, but loved supporting all IU Sports. During her retirement years, Susan became a Master Gardener and enjoyed tending to her garden. Most of all, she loved watching her grandsons play soccer, basketball and baseball.
Susan will be greatly missed by her loving son, Matthew David, and his wife Kristen, of Indianapolis, Indiana; Susan’s 3 grandsons: Ryan, Tyler and CJ; and her sister Julia Miller, of West Hollywood, CA.
