Susan Lynn Eisele

Susan Lynn “Susie” Eisele, 51 of Superior, AZ, passed away on Nov. 30, 2013 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona.

She was born in Globe, AZ and moved to Superior soon thereafter. She attended the ARC special education program throughout her childhood. She participated in Special Olympics track and field, earning several ribbons, and even more hugs. Once she completed her education program, she traveled daily from Superior to the Kearny/Ray ARC Workshop. There she was employed and shared daily responsibilities with her co-workers and friends, completing various jobs as assigned, from local and state contracts.

She enjoyed listening to music, watching her favorite movies which included King Kong and The Wizard of Oz. In addition to music and movies, dining out was something she happily looked forward to. Mexican food was a must, and most recently, cheeseburgers and fries were her treat of choice. Her pet cat Bo, was a friend for life, and she enjoyed her niece’s and nephews’ dog, Mr. Peanut.

For the past few years, Susie has enjoyed her Group Home residence in Globe, AZ. She socialized daily, contributed to household responsibilities, was well cared for, and lived out her dream of ‘independent’ living; something she aspired for from an early age.

She is survived by her father, Edward Eisele of Superior and his significant other, Avis Hanks; a sister, Samantha Longenbaugh and brother-in-law Eric Longenbaugh; nephews, Edward Celaya, Mark Celaya and Timothy Celaya; step-nephew, Forrest Longenbaugh; niece, Samantha C. Celaya; and step-nieces, Jordynn Longenbaugh and Paisley Longenbaugh. She is preceded in death by her mother, Marcia K. Eisele.

Susie will be missed dearly by all of those who knew her. To know her, was truly to love her. A small ceremony in celebration of her life, will be held later this week, for Susie’s family and friends.

Funeral services for Susie were held Thursday, Dec. 5, at the Mountain View Cemetery in Mesa.

Mountain View Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.
