Susan (Sue) Jean Evenson

She loved life. Those 3 words best describe Susan (Sue) Jean Evenson. She was a gift born to the world September 7, 1951. In her short lifetime, Sue gave back to the world unconditionally. She was a bright spirit, positive, loving and kind to everyone she met. Her favorite things were volunteering, the beach/water, doing things for others, celebrating holidays (especially birthdays) sending cards (with lots of stickers), giving and getting gifts, parties/celebrations, spending time exploring/antiquing with her husband, spending lots of time with her grandchildren children and BFF’s Chris, Barb and Linda (and we cannot forget her love of cigarettes and coffee). She was a free spirit with a childlike soul. Her beautiful Spirit is carried on by her husband Edward Evenson, her two daughters, Shannon Fricilone Long (Alex) and Sarah Fricilone Varisco (Joe), four grandchildren (Sophia, Vincent, Xavier and Felix), three surviving siblings Sharon Delewski, Sandra Clemmenson and Robert Buczak and an extended family of nieces and nephews, relations and friends from every walk of life. To Sue, everyone she met was a friend. She is now in heaven celebrating with her beloved grandparents (Jaja and Busia), her parents Edward (Lil) Buczak and Delores Buczak. Happy Birthday Sue! We love you.
