Susan “Susie” Havran was born in Orange, California in May 1958 to Wallace Louis Trochesset and Joan Badgett Trochesset, and was later joined by three siblings, Wallace, Mary Ann, and Stephen. Spending the majority of her childhood on Galveston Island in Texas, Susan took great pride in her education and extracurricular activities from a very early age. Knowing that she wanted to be a pharmacist, Susan worked diligently to be the first from her family to attend college. She received her Bachelor Degree with honors in Pharmacy in August 1980 from The University of Texas in Austin. Although this was a great accomplishment, it was not the greatest moment of her life. She met the love of her life in the fall of 1976 in line for tickets to a Longhorn football game. John Mark Havran spent much of his time with Susan over the course of her college career and they were married at Sacred Heart Church in November of 1980. The happiness and memories they shared were gifts neither of the two could ever repay the other. Seven years after they married, John and Susan had their first child, Mark Edward Havran, and soon after were joined by their daughter, Holly Clair Havran. Susan was an exceptional wife and mother, devoting any time not spent as a pharmacist to her husband and children. She was involved in every one of her children’s extracurricular activities from sports to Girl Scouts. She was a vivacious, kind, loving, enthusiastic, and spirited woman. She would do anything she could for her family and her friends. Her greatest character trait was her kindness. She took a great passion in her crafts, photography, and scrapbooking. She leaves behind a great catalog of memories for her friends and family with which she poured her spirit into. Susie was so thankful and proud of her father for the way she was raised and the way he took care of her mother Joan. She knew exactly what it took to bravely battle breast cancer and while her mother lost the good fight. She learned exactly what it took to be strong from her father and successfully beat breast cancer. She is survived by her husband, John; her children, Mark and Holly; her father, Wallace; her siblings, Wallace, Mary Ann, and Stephen; and a number of dear and beloved friends. She is predeceased by her mother, Joan; her father-in-law, Edward Havran; her mother-in-law, Muriel Havran; and her nephew, Barrett Havran.
