Susan Kay Syvrud, 58, of Polson, passed away at St. Joseph Hospital on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, of natural causes following a brief illness, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born to Bob and June Syvrud on Nov. 16, 1960, in Bismarck, N.D. Susan graduated from Polson High School in 1979, and attended the University of Montana.

As a young adult, Jesus became the center of Sue’s life. That relationship became the core of her commitment to the disadvantaged. She worked as an Activity Director at nursing homes for more than 20 years in Seattle, Wash., and Helena, Mont. For the last 10 years, Sue served as a caregiver and job coach at Mission Mountain Enterprises in Polson.

Sue was a student of the Bible, and enjoyed music and fellowship at Polson Community Church.

“Sweet Sue” loved animals, especially the family pets. Nieces and nephews were like daughters and sons to her. She loved them dearly.

She was a proud member of Griz Nation and attended many Griz football games.

Sue was an avid swimmer and loved Flathead Lake. She rarely missed a summer day without a swim.

She is survived by her father; two brothers and their families — Kevin of Helena and children Haaken (Jessica), Keegan, Jabin, Ayanna and Malachi; Eric (Dana) of Missoula, Mont., and children Ciera and Soren; and grand-niece, Elsie June.

She was preceded in death by her mother and best friend.

Memorial services for Sue will be held on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019, at 11 a.m. at the Polson Community Church, 1814 First St. E. Memorials may be made to Samaritan’s Purse, David Harriman Ministries or a charity of your choice. Memories and condolences may be sent to the family at www.thelakefuneralhomeandcrematory.com.

Arrangements are under the direction of The Lake Funeral Home and Crematory.
