Susan Lillian McFadden was 82 when Jesus called her home. She took her last breath on Friday, March 30th, 2018. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Susan is survived by her son James, her Grandchildren Susie and husband John, William and wife Amanda, Jimmy, and Ashley. She also was survived by her seven great grandchildren Evan, Cecili, Reuel, Trevor, Trent, Samantha, and Rey. She also loved her great- grandchildren’s fiancé and spouse, Jescelane and Ozzy. Susan was the oldest of her four siblings who she loved very much and served as a role model and strength for many. She came to this country on her own in the 1960’s as a courageous young woman with her son and single handedly brought all her family to the United States where they live today. Susan had a lifelong spiritual journey and she ended up embracing the light and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. She trusted God with everything and enjoyed praying and talking to him daily. Being with her family was her biggest joy and she enjoyed having in depth conversations while imagining the future. Her life had many obstacles and she struggled the last 18 years with different types of illnesses while being strong through it all.
We wish that the last decade had not been lost to her illnesses, that things could have been different for her as she deserved the very best. While we know that she is at peace and that her struggles are at an end, there is a deep pain and sadness that is left with all of us who love her. Although she has left this earth, it is peaceful knowing she is with the Lord, and she has left the legacy of her love and strength. The ways she touched our lives will remain forever and she would want all of us to share all the fond memories of her with one another.
A few of the things Susan loved to do was cooking, eating, word find puzzles, card games, knitting, traveling, writing in her diary, flowers, television programs especially the Korean soap dramas, classic movies like Gone with the Wind and The Ten Commandments, music such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Doris Day, Glen Miller and many others, dancing, giving advice/wisdom to others, and spending time with her family. She was an amazing cook and we will all miss the tasty food that she prepared for so many people. Susan always spoke her mind, stood up for what she believed in, she was strong, intelligent, loving, gifted, and most of all self-less. She did everything for her family and always wanted the best for her grandchildren. Grandma will be truly missed and never forgotten; she will live in our hearts forever, and we look forward to when we meet again.
We love you grandma!
