Susan was born Dec. 3, 1954 to John Q. and Billie B. Hanshaw. She went on to be with her Lord and Savior on July 21, 2017. Susan grew up in Bremerton, Washington.

Surviving her are sisters Diane (John) Aasness and Rachel (John) Mortensen and brother John D. Willis and 15 nieces and nephews, 30 great nieces and nephews and 8 great great nieces and nephews. Susie loves music. She groove to the oldies and danced to the Gaithers...and oh how she loved her cats! She was involved with Women's Bible Study at Sylvan Way Baptist Church on Tuesdays. Her favorite Bible verse was John 8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed". Susan graduated in 1976 from East High School. She went on to work for NUWES Keyport as and o-ring inspector, earning her numerous commendations for her exceptional and tireless service. She worked there 17 years. The trials Susie endured throughout her life would have been daunting for someone else, but she knew that she was being held in the righteous right hand of her Lord. She knew Who holds tomorrow and her final achievement would be her greatest..... to be free indeed in the loving arms of Jesus. We love you Susie Q. God bless you!
