Our beloved mother and grandmother, Susan Marie Olechea, age 77, peacefully flew home to be with Our Heavenly Father on Monday, Sept. 21, 2020.

Susan Marie Olechea

She was born Jan. 25, 1943, in Bremerton, Wash., to James Clarence Burt and Berta Black. She spent her life working for public health.

She was the most loving and selfless mother to Sativa and grandma to her grandsons and their friends. She was Grandma Susan to all who knew her.

Family was everything to Susan. Spending her time with her loving daughter, Sativa, and her precious grandsons, Michael and Joseph, was what she enjoyed most in life.

Susan taught her friends and family to love without condition, talk without bad intention, give without reason and most of all, care for people without any exception.

Susan is survived by her daughter, Sativa M. Ridsdale; grandsons, Michael Anthony Ridsdale and Joseph Peter Ridsdale; and many friends and children of the community.

A celebration of life will be held in the future.
