Sue Ellen McFarland passed away on March 30, 2022, at 78 years of age. Sue is survived by her daughter, Rebecca Ambrose and grandsons, Anthony Ambrose and Alexander Ambrose. She was preceded in death by her husband Ronald, daughter Deborah and brother Bill Olofson.

Sue was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the age of seven, she moved with her parents and brother to California. Growing up in Long Beach, Sue graduated Millikan High School, attended Long Beach City College and worked at Douglas Aircraft Company. Sue met Ron and they married in February, 1967.

Those we love don’t go away.

  1. Sue was my friend during our teenage years and continued through out our 20’s. We married twin brothers and became family (we were actually family already). Our lives were meant to intertwine and I will forever be thankful for our friendship. I love you Sue and will forever, until we meet again.

  2. May God comfort you with wonderful memories as you grieve the loss of your sweet mom.
