Birth: Jan. 31, 1870, USA
Death: Apr. 16, 1960
Cripple Creek
Teller County
Colorado, USA

Doc Susie is best known as the role model for television's 'Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman". Dr. Anderson lived near Cripple Creek before and after persuing her medical degree. She eventually moved to Fraser, where she practiced for 60 years. She requested that upon her death she be buried in Cripple Creek next to her beloved brother John. The family plot could not be located and she was buried in another area. Eventually the family plot was found with Susie's tombstone already in place; Doc Susie is the only resident of Mt. Pisgah Cemetery to have two grave markers - but only one grave.
