Susan Bolyard

Susan is the third generation of her family to live in their home on Emily Street. Susan spent her childhood in this home and inherited it from her grandmother upon her passing. Before the city began targeting her neighborhood, Susan had recently obtained a loan and fixed up her house, adding new windows and siding. She enjoys spending evenings in her beautiful garden, sitting on her dad’s old furniture and admiring the flowers that remind her of her mother who planted them. Susan says that if the city takes her house, she would leave Cumberland forever.
