We are sad to announce that on September 27, 2021, we said goodbye to our beloved daughter and sister Susan Denise Walker of Tyler, Texas. Susan was born on December 2, 1970, in Little Rock, Arkansas. There will be a family-led graveside ceremony at Cedars Memorial Gardens cemetery in Mineola, Texas on October 09, 2021, at 2:00 , followed by a celebration of Susan’s life.
Susan is preceded in death by her father John Walker of Houston, and her loving dad Kenneth W. Fancher of Mineola, Texas. She is survived by her mother Mary Lanell Fancher of Mineola, her sisters Marsha D’Laine Ivy (Darrell) of Flower Mound, Amanda Jonell Davis (Brandon) of Frisco, Christine Michele Hill of Tyler, Kathleen Jane Tucker of Highland Village, Deborah Sue Rettedal (Kerry) of Denver, Jackie McCutcheon (John) of Fayetteville, and her brothers Kirk Alan Fancher of Tyler, Darren Elliot Fancher (Sonia) of Tallahassee, and J. Michael Walker (Nohemi) of Los Angeles.
Susan is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, including Kiersten Ivy, Kaden Ivy, Kennedy Ivy, Kirsten Davis, Caroline Davis, Harper Davis, Michael Sullivan, Taryn Sullivan, Jonathan Tucker, Miles Tucker, Dan Rettedal, Joe Rettedal, Amanda Rettedal, Elizabeth Fancher, Luke Fancher, Robyn Walker-Wessels, and Jacobo Carrasco Walker.
Susan graduated with honors from Edward M. Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas in 1989, where she was active in the drama club and the student council. Susan attended North Texas State University and thereafter began a productive and enviable career in restaurant management. Susan loved her coworkers and often referred to them as her extended family.
Susan was an avid Kansas City Chief’s fan and, moreover, she was an even more enthusiastic science fiction fan. She often traveled to Comic Con conventions to meet up with friends who shared her love for science fiction. She had a passion for all things entertainment, and knew every line from almost every movie. Her love for the band Duran Duran spanned 4 decades, and she saw them in concert all over the country. Susan also had an endearing love of animals, which most recently included her cat Oakley. Susan will be lovingly remembered by her family as a humorous, imaginative, theatrical, and intelligent daughter, sister, and aunt. We will miss her keen wit and generous spirit. Susan, we will love you always.
