Susan Marie Richards (Suzy-Q) born on December 6, 1967 passed away February 29, 2016, at the age of 48. She was born in Houston, grew up in College Station and graduated from A&M Consolidated High School in 1986.
Susan worked for Texas A&M University since 1997, most recently in the Health and Kinesiology Dept. Susan loved her job and the people with whom she worked.
Susan was a proud mother and loved her children and grandchildren deeply. She loved life, lived it fully and never met a stranger. Anyone who knew her felt privileged to have been able to call her their friend. She had an infectious smile and brought joy to those around her.
She is preceded in death by A. J. Richards “Papa”, and numerous aunts and uncles.
Survivors include her father, Robert Richards and his wife Marilyn; her mother Sandra Ellis; sister Rebekah Craig; daughter Gabrielle Allen; son Preston Foster; and grandchildren La’Jae and La’Jerrien. She is also survived by close friends that she considered family; Leslie, Danielle, and Dawn.
Thank you to Dr. Erin Fleener and her staff for their wonderful care and compassion, the Oncology Dept. at St. Joseph, and Hospice Brazos Valley. Though the nursing staff spent only a few hours with Susan, they were wonderful and caring.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to Hospice Brazos Valley.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, March 8th @ 3pm at St. Lukes United Methodist Church, 2700 W. Villa Maria Rd. Bryan, TX 77807.
