Susan Diane Walker Tranchell August 26, 1952 - May 13, 2021


August 26, 1952 – May 13, 2021


The love of my life for over 40 years passed away peacefully in her home on May 13th, 2021.
Although our hearts are broken, we know now she will be able to do the things she always loved such as crafting, painting and fishing. She is now with those she loves who went before her. Some of her favorite things were spending time with her grand-babies, who adored her, as well as her 3 chihuahuas. She appreciated the love and support of her close friends, Roma and Maynard Fullmer and Joel and Renee Crouch, Erica and Cole Kinyon who were with our family through good times and bad. In her short 68 years of life she always tried to see the best in people and made everyone laugh with her sassy quick wit. Susie gave the best gifts and was always thinking of others. She loved the holidays, especially Christmas. She loved to decorate and to supervisor Tony while he worked in the yard or on the house.
Our sweet mom, wife, grandmother and friend taught all of us to BELIEVE. She had a heart as big as the moon and a laugh that could light it up. She may be gone physically but she will be in our hearts for eternity.
Sue is survived by her loving husband and best friend Tony Tranchell, her children Amanda Kwiatkowski (Brandon), Anthony Griego, Brandon Tranchell, and Sheri Peterson, her grandchildren and great grandchildren, many friends and her three furry babies; Lulu, Lucy and Kahlua.
A viewing will be held in Sue’s honor at 4:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M. at Walker Funeral Home in Payson on Monday May 17th, 2021.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Sue and I are first cousins even though we just found this out three years ago. I thought I’d have time to meet her. RIP cousin. I love you and sorry I never got to meet you.

    I think of you every day. I miss you so much. I miss our talks, the shared memories of growing up together, the laughter. I miss sharing things with you. Having someone on my side. Having someone who had loved me all my life and was my big sister, through good times and the not-so-good times. I miss your smile and warped sense of humor. And I miss being there and being my silly self singing and dancing and making you laugh. I just miss you, and I always will.
