MADISON/LONG LAKE -Susan Fahlberg-Erway, age 85, died on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012. She was born on June 4, 1927, in Morgantown, W.V. She graduated from Stephens College and the University of West Virginia and earned her Masters of Library Science from Rutgers. Susan loved to read and travel. She enjoyed spending time up north at her summer home in Long Lake. But above all else, Susan was devoted to helping those in need. She impacted the lives of many people through her support of work done by organizations including World Vision and Heifer International. She contributed generously to the Lutheran church and local charitable groups. She travelled to Peru and Central America on missions of mercy. She supported a poor, widowed woman, Dona Mercedes, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for many years until her passing. It was typical of Susan to meet people in need and try to help them.

Susan married T.A. Fahlberg in 1950, and is survived by their four children, April, Linda and her husband, Vito, and her sons and their wives, Thomas and Victoria and Timothy and Beth. Also surviving are five grandchildren, Anjuli (Wil), Marissa, Brandon, Kevin and Sarah; and a great-grandson, Jordan (Anjuli & Wil); beloved sisters-in-love; and nieces and nephews. Susan was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Georgine (Ritland) Harris, John Erway; and her husband, Donald Joseph Lunde.
