In Memoriam: Susan Woods, State Government Media Relations Professional

Susan Woods (61) of Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County passed away on August 21 at Carolyn’s House and served as Auditor General Eugene DePasquale Press Secretary at the time of her death.
Susan had more than 25 years of experience in media and public relations, with particular emphasis in state government public affairs and advocacy issue outreach.  
She started working for the state of Pennsylvania as an information specialist in 1985 for the Department of Environmental Resources.  
She went on to work as a Special Assistant and Deputy Press Secretary for Gov. Bob Casey.  Susan also worked as Deputy Director of Communications for Gov. Ed Rendell.
From 1996 to 2003, Susan worked for the State of Maryland as the Director of Communications for the Department of the Environment and the Director of Public Events for Gov. Parris Glendening.  
She returned to Pennsylvania to work for Auditor General DePasquale.
“I got to know Susan when she worked for DER in 1985 when I was in the DER Office of Legislative Affairs,” said David E. Hess, former Secretary of DEP.  “She was always the professional and worked hard at her job. She also got a kick out of being spokesperson, at times, for DER’s Bureau of Forestry. Her humor and professionalism will be missed.”
All are welcome to join Susan’s friends at her Celebration of Life service at 1:00 p.m. at the State Capitol East Wing on September 8.  Please use the East Wing entrance. Cremation was private.
