Biography

I was born 15 Dec 1956 in Rochester, New York as Elizabeth Ann Johnson, to Marge, and was relinquished for adoption. I was adopted March 1957 at which time my name was changed to Susan Vetter. My birth mom Marge choose my birth name, she told me. I grew up in Rochester, NY, graduated from Brighton High School in 1975 and achieved an A.S. in Liberal Arts at Monroe Community College in 1979. I spent several years in the U.S. Army and married 29 Sep 1989 to Garnard (Gary) Wemett. I have 2 children, 1 grandchild, 1 step-child, and 2 step-grandchildren.

Much of my employ has been in medical jobs, trained in the Army as a Basic Medical Specialist and Behavioral Science Specialist. I have worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Home Health Aide, Phlebotomist, Emergency Medical Technician, and Patient Care Technician. My husband was employed in the ambulance business for 54 years, working as an Emergency Medical Technician, Dispatcher, & supervisory Dispatcher positions. He also was a volunteer firefighter for 7 years, achieving a rank of Lieutenant when a medical situation made it was necessary for him to resign.

I am a very musical person, still active in musical ventures. My earliest memories of bonding with my adoptive family were singing rounds together. I remember my 4th grade music teacher handing out 100 pages of popular song lyrics. I used to sit on the end of my bed for hours after school for hours and sing these songs. I desperately wanted to sing more and sing better. In 4th grade I also began clarinet lessons which I played into early high school via school bands, orchestras, woodwind ensemble, and a NYSSMA Solo Festival. I took a semester of flute in high school, and picked up soprano recorder. I've casually taken up guitar a few times, and now play ukulele and mountain dulcimer. I've actively been part of a senior citizen mountain dulcimer group for about 8 years. I had sung in church choirs for years but also sang locally with semi-professional choirs from 1993-2012, including the Rochester Oratorio Society, Eastman-Rochester Chorus, Finger Lakes Choral Festival and a few others. I once asked my maternal half-sister if anyone else in the family was musical. She told me our grandmother had been organist at their church and she thought just about everyone in the family was musical in one way or another. My first musical crushes were Burl Ives and Danny Kaye, Davy Jones of the Monkees and Bobby Sherman. Other favorite music includes John Denver, Celtic Woman, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Josh Groban, ELO, Blake Sheldon, Coldplay, Phil Collins, Lady Gaga, Phil Schwartz's "State of Grace," Windham Hill, David Arkenstone, Yanni, Two Steps From Hell, Bing Crosby, Gordon Lightfoot, and a world of others. Choral favorites to sing are Handel's Messiah, Brahm's German Requiem, and Beethoven's 9th. I can proudly say we sang with the Rochester Philharmonic multiple times, Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra nine times, the London Ontario Fanshawe Chorus & Symphony Orchestra four times, as well as others.

In our retirement, genealogy is my addiction. I was privileged to find both my birth families. Creating my trees has been fun and several family members in each family have corresponded by email, collaborating on our trees. I grew up with one adoptive brother. He left for college when I was in 7th grade and I rarely saw until retired in 2012 and he moved home. Our parents were both transplants from the midwest so I grew up with no local family, no cousins, or aunts and uncles, etc. This is why family is important to me. I have 2 biological half-sisters and 4 half-brothers.

We also enjoy New York state travel, eating out, agritourism, camping, movies, farm markets, and festivals and fairs. I'm very interested in anything French since learning of my French ancestry. I'm also a big fan of interior design, architecture, landscape design, and other home-related arts. My favorite home design styles are Traditional, Shabby Chic, French Farmhouse, Hollywood Regency, Rustic, Modern Farmhouse, and Modern Rustic. Is Pottery Barn a style? I'm kidding....

Hi Susan,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Susie

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.
