Director of MDO Preschool
Susan Gleaton has been a member of LRBC since the church met at Rockledge Elementary School and there was no church building. Her father-in-law was among the first members to come from First Baptist Church of Woodbridge to start LRBC. Susan was an army brat growing up and Woodbridge Senior High School was the first school she attended for 2 consecutive years.
Susan says, "Children are our greatest blessings. The early years are so important to their foundation for the rest of their lives. Parents are their children's greatest blessing." She knows parents have so much on their days and hopes to be a support to be able to assure them their child is on the right track. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29: 11.
Susan is married to Vernon, who is the most talented person she knows since he can fix anything from cars to refrigerators. She is a proud grandmother and feels blessed that both her kids live close by.
Susan loves the feeling of family at LRBC and that her children and now grandchildren are loved the minute they walk into the building. "I love the women who rocked my children as babies; have attended their graduations and weddings and now say good morning to their children when they walk through the building!"
