Susan was a fighter and hard worker. A Jane of all trades, master of nothing, her last vocation, a favorite of hers, was that of an Office Manager at The Water Filter Company. Wife of John T.

Susan was deeply loved and survived by John T. Fenchel, daughters Stasha and Shalyn and son in-laws Steven and Jonathan. She was adored by 7 grandchildren: Kaitlyn, Andrew (Kaitlyn’s husband), Jordyn, Jaden, Lucas, Arrianna, and Kylee. Susan also leaves behind 6 beloved siblings: David, Debra, Gerald, Pamela, Patrick, and Kathleen as well as 5 in-laws: Steve, Ron, Liz, Bobby, and Cindy. Her soul mates and best friends Karen and Amy will never be the same without her. She will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. Her co-workers and bosses were also her friends and she missed them greatly during her battle. Susan was a fast friend to many and never met a stranger.

May her body rest in peace and her soul forever dance in heaven.
