Susan Cordelia Anderson, 62, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021, at her residence in Longview, Wash. “Susie” was born Feb. 17, 1958, in Sedro-Woolley, Wash., to Kenny and Rema (Mathis) Anderson.
She attended school in the Winlock, Wash., school district. Susie truly lived life with compassion for others. Her heart didn’t discriminate and accepted all those in different walks of life as God’s children. Despite enduring two separate tragic losses of both of her sons’ fathers before her 24th birthday, her sense of humor and most notably her infectious laugh remained. She was known for her intelligence and more than her fair share of quick wit. Susie used these gifts throughout her life to help others, especially other women who may have been struggling and found their current situation unmanageable. She loved Native American culture, trips to the ocean and dogs. She enjoyed a good secondhand store with a bountiful abundance of treasures and an affinity for a slot machine that liked to pay out. Above all, she loved her family and friends. The unconditional love she had for her boys was fierce, unwavering, and always felt.
Susie is survived by her father, Kenny Anderson; her sons, Joey and Billy; her older brother, Rick; and younger brothers, Jeff and Sylvan; and younger sisters, Kelli, Gina, and Dana. Susie also leaves behind her lifelong best friend and partner in crime, Teri (Fazekas) Sieler; as well as a large extended family that includes numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews, with a large contingent of family residing in Skagit County located North of Seattle.
She was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Rema; stepfather, Sylvan Newton; and grandparents, Homer and Glenora Mathis, Charles and Sylvia Anderson.
