Susan Myers (Kowalski)

Troy, Michigan

SUSAN MARIE KOWALSKI (nee: Myers) April 5, 2019 age 76, of Troy. Dear wife of Roger for 58 years. Beloved mother of Stewart (Tricia), Robert (Melissa), Steven and Kendall (Kristiann). Dear grandmother of eleven, 3 granddaughter in-laws, 2 great grandchildren and predeceased in death by 1 grandchild, Daniel, her parents, Stewart and Priscilla Myers and step mother, Lillian and her uncle, Lewis Darling. Loving sister of Sean (Laura) Myers.

Susan was devoted to her family and felt blessed to be able to be an active part of their lives. She loved writing poetry and never missed a grandchild’s birthday with a newly composed poem. A closet artist that took first place at an art show while in high school where she also enjoyed her time as a cheerleader. Susan enjoyed a good laugh even generating it herself when opportunity presented itself, like singing at the top of her lungs to her sleeping children to get them out of bed in the morning! She was also known as the queen of Spartan tailgating on football weekends. Susan and Roger enjoyed the many years they spent in Florida during the winters at Ft. Myers and St. Augustine. Susan was a founding member of the Troy Nature Society, longtime member of Zion Lutheran Church and retired after 23 years from the Smith Middle School in Troy where she said the staff was like family and they indeed provided many hours of comfort and support during her fight with cancer.

A Memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes to the Zion Lutheran Church Food Pantry, Ferndale, MI or Stage Nature Center, Troy, MI.

In our sophomore year, I was severely injured in a near fatal automobile accident. During my 3+ month recovery period, Susie’s frequent, compassionate visits to my hospital room and home gave me great comfort. She was a great friend to me and many others. She was a truly bright light at Eastern High School-- she made a difference in life.
