Dr. Susan Bardwell

Dr. Susan Bardwell was a beloved mother, wife, community servant, and pediatrician in the Plymouth area. Sadly, in 2012, we lost Susan to illness, all too soon, at the age of 48.


Throughout her life, she had an outsized impact on the people of Marshall County, giving her talents and energies to many noble causes. Chief among those were the interests of children and her passion for swimming.


Susan had seen the benefits of swimming first-hand through her boys' involvement in swimming programs, and she knew it to be one of the most important life skills that any child should learn.


When the indoor swimming pool at Plymouth High School closed, the area was left without a year-round community swimming facility. It was Susan's dying wish that Plymouth once more have an indoor aquatic center.


At about that time, a group of committed leaders went to work to make Dr. Bardwell's dream a reality to serve the needs of our community.
