“Big V”

Sweet Susan gained her angel wings on the evening of Saturday, April 17th, 2021. She passed peacefully at her home surrounded by the immeasurable love of her family.

Susan graduated from Jordan High School in 1975 and then worked at Hillcrest Care Center for 25 years where she poured her heart and soul into taking care of others.

She married the love of her life, Francisco Carreon Valenzuela on February 21, 1986 and he became her lifelong partner. He will continue his journey through life but longs for the day that they will be together again.

Susan devoted her life to raising her 4 children Shawn Barton, Carrie Hernandez (Hector), Francisca Valenzuela, and Maria Ramirez. She was promoted to grandma in 1999 and shared a special bond with each of her 8 grandchildren, Christopher, Kayla, Matthew, and Marcus Hernandez; Fernando and Elizabeth Nava; Natalia and Luis Ramirez.
