Susan grew up in England. Her maiden name was Susan Scoones. She met Colin (the father of her children) in 1966, and they got married.
In 1967, they had a duaghter, Samantha, and and in 1969 a son, Anthony whilst still living in London. The family then moved to South Africa, where
dad Colin had been offered a job. Their chance of having another child was slim, so the couple turned to hormone treatments. In 1973,
Susan got pregnant, and the doctor thought it would be triplets. But as we all know, it turned out to be twice as many babies -
Susan's marriage to Colin became strained. In 1987, she met Terry Wilson, her sons' soccer coach. They fell in love, which led to the couple's separation.
