Susan Roan Rusk

Susan was born in Westerly, Rhode Island the 25thof April 1949.  She left this world too soon, on the morning of June 4, 2018.

Susan and her family moved to California when she was eight years old.  Susan was always a voracious reader.  As a girl one summer, she read the entire collection of books at the Tustin library. She loved art and literature.

After finishing school, Susan married John Rusk and they began their lives together as young parents and entrepreneurs opening a plant store in Orange called the Half Moon.  In the 80’s Susan moved to San Juan Capistrano with her daughter Jennifer and began a career in technology.

She rode her bike to the beach daily, weather permitting. Her free time was spent bicycling, basking in the sun, and reading.  The best combination of bicycle, books, and beach included her family.  Susan, her daughter Jennifer, and three grandchildren Addison, Shane, and Logan, planned their vacations around camping trips at the beach under the stars.  She will be missed by them beyond measure.

Susan spent her last weekend on earth doing what she loved.  She bicycled to the beach, she sat in the sun, she played in the ocean and sand with her daughter and her grandkids. She read.

Susan was preceded in death by her parents Dorothy and John Roan and her brother Scott.  Susan was recognized by her beautiful smile.  She will be missed by many loving friends, beloved family of co-workers at Kulicke and Soffa, neighbors, and family.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday June 30, 2018 at 10:30 AM at Capo Beach.  Turn right on Beach Rd. from Pacific Coast Highway. Look for the EZ up to the right of the basketball courts.  All are welcome.

    So sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. I was her neighbor/friend next door to The Half Moon. We had many wonderful times together “just hanging out”. I am sad to know we actually lived very close to one another.Jennifer was just a little tot!

  4. I just saw the post today on Facebook that Sue had passed away. I’m so sad to hear that. She was one of my best friends in High School and I have very fond memories of her during those days. We’ve stayed in touch and meet a few times for lunch over the years. She was a very sweet person and will be missed by everyone who knew her. My prayers go out to Jennifer and her children. I do believe she is with the Lord in heaven and we will be reunited with her again one day!
