Dear Family and Friends of Susan L. Young,
I worked as a bedside nurse at Ephrata Community Hospital from 1991-2003. Susan was the CNO during this time. I remember her as being a genuinely kind and professional person. I respected her very much. One memory I have of Susan is Y2K (1999-2000). Supposedly the computer systems around the world were going to crash and chaos would follow. That night I worked 3-11 and stayed over in case the prediction of came true. I remember Susan calmly coming around to the ICU just a few minutes after midnight confidently declaring the computer systems transitioned without a glitch and stating, "You may go home". I figured if Susan was confident, I will be confident. It was just that way with Susan. She was someone you wanted to emulate. I had the privilege several years after leaving Ephrata Community Hospital to reconnect with her. It is a small world and I was glad to catch up with her. I am sad to learn of her passing. Please accept my sincere condolences. Sincerely,
Melody Dillman, MSN, RN
