Susan Kay Fuller Stipp was born May 30, 1941 in Ft. Wayne, Indiana to William D. Fuller and Leora G. Lowe Fuller and died Thursday, September 13, 2022 in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Susan received her Bachelor of Science in Education and taught elementary school for several years, before returning to school to work on her Master of Library Science.  After having two children, Susan spent time working within the home, managing all of the things that were necessary for a minister’s  family to run smoothly.  After moving to Hot Springs, AR, she also took on the responsibility of keeping children in their home.  She often took the children on rides on the city bus which stopped right in front of their house.  After moving to Lafayette, LA, she began working for the Lafayette Public Library in the children’s department.  The last position she held there required that she prepare weekly story time activities for daycares and head starts.  Each story time included a story, song or finger play as well as a craft.

She is preceded death by her parents, William and Leora Fuller; brother-in-law, Dick Johnson; and sister-in-law, Janice Stipp.

Stipp-Bethune, Simeon Stipp-Bethune, Beulah Stipp-Bethune, Maddie Gnann and Lauren Gnann; sister, Connie Johnson; brothers, Gerry Fuller and wife, Carol, and Denny Fuller and wife, Kim; brothers-in-law, Ed Stipp and Jim Stipp, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and dear family friends.
