Susan was born June 4, 1953, in Phillipsburg, KS to Dan and Norma Jean (Horn) Rundle. As a child, her family moved to Hastings, NE so Susan could attend what was then Hope Training School. Susan was affiliated and spent almost 50 years receiving service and care with Mid-Nebraska Individual Services. Susan was a special gal and touched many people during her lifetime.

One of Susan’s favorite things was taking photos and filling her photo albums. There was nothing better than Susan with a polaroid asking you to say “cheese” and fanning that photo until it dried. Susan loved spending time with her family and friends and was a very social and friendly person. Susan was a beloved daughter, sister, and aunt.

The family would like to express our deep gratitude for the many wonderful caregivers who have taken such good care of Susan over the last couple of years. A special thanks to Hospice for all their assistance.

Susan was preceded in death by her father, Daniel Rundle, mother, Norma Jean (Horn) Rundle; sister and brother-in-law, Sally and Rod Mennenga; brother and sister-in-law, Daniel and Renee Rundle; sister-in-law, Terri Rundle; and nephew, Bill Rundle.
