Allen Treadaway, but we take solace in the knowledge that she is free from cancer and experiencing a joyous peace that only God and Heaven can provide.”
“Serving in the Alabama House is an all-in commitment that requires the dedication of both our representatives and their families, which is why we have a club exclusively for legislative spouses,” Ledbetter continued. As a result, when a representative loses a dedicated partner like Susan, we feel like we have lost one of our own colleagues. At this difficult time, our members are joining together and lifting Allen and his family up with our love, support, and prayers for solace and comfort..”
