Suzanne Grubbs, Susie, passed away in her home in Bandera, Tx on April 9, 2023.
Susie was born on September 27, 1953, to Claude and Ruth Grubbs, her siblings Claude “Larry” and Laurelyn “Lauree” Grubbs.
Susie served the state of Texas for many years working in the Employee Retirement Division. She lived most of her adult life in Austin, Texas and then moved to San Antonio, then Bandera, Texas once she retired.
Susie was an avid fan of Grateful Dead; she went to many shows and genuinely loved their music. In fact, Susie was a fan of all music, she was often heard singing lyrics in conversation, as they may, or may not apply. She would sing and it seemed she did not care who heard her no matter the situation. Susie was a joy to be around. She was not afraid to make others laugh, she was always quick with a funny story or antidote often about her cats. Susie was loving. She would listen to your tale of woe, and find a way to encourage you, and if she did not have any words of comfort, she would just sit and hold your hand. Most importantly, Susie loved the Lord and was quick to pray for and with those she loved.
Susie is survived by her Sister Lauree Wilkerson of Bandera, Tx, and her brother Claude “Larry” Grubbs of Pilot Knob, Mo. She is also survived by her nephews Jeremy and Josh Wilkerson, Daniel, and David Grubbs, Nieces Laurel Bromme, Jessica Stone and Phoebe Grubbs as well as 7 great nieces and nephews.
Susie was preceded in death by her Father Claude Grubbs, and Mother Ruth Grubbs Parker.
Services will be held at the united Methodist Church in Bandera, Tx. Date and time are to be determined.
"Reach out your hand, if your cup be empty
If your cup is full, may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men
There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone
Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow” –
“Ripple” by The Grateful Dead
