A beautiful smile and infectious laugh left this world on September 21st. Susanne Talbott Haverstock, 71, passed away that morning in the home she loved in Bloomington, IN.
Sue was born on July 2, 1946 in San Jose, CA, to Robert L. Talbott and Mary Evelyn (Fowler) Talbott. She was a graduate of the IU School of Education, earning both Bachelor's and Master's degrees. She taught in MCCSC schools for 39 years, serving her students and their families at McCalla, Hunter and University Elementary Schools. She was honored in 1996 as Monroe County's Teacher of the Year.
She leaves behind her husband of 43 years, James Haverstock. She also leaves her brothers, David Talbott, of Ontario, Canada, Donald Talbott and wife, Nancy, of Bloomington and sister, Marilyn Cloud, also of Bloomington. Sue is missed by her in-laws, Jack and Ronda Haverstock and Tim and Becky Haverstock, all of Rolling Prairie, IN. She also leaves behind her loving cousins, Peggy Price and Dick Fowler, as well as cherished nieces and nephews.
Susanne was preceded in death by her parents and by her mother-and father-in-law, Georgiana and Lloyd Haverstock, who loved her very much.
She was never afraid during her illness. She was at peace, knowing that her Father has prepared a place for her to enjoy an eternal life. She was a lady of faith and dignity and joy.
Sue requested that she be cremated. A memorial service will be held at the Day & Deremiah-Frye Funeral Home; 4150 E. Third St. on Saturday, September 30 at 1:00 p.m. Friends may call from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service. The service will be conducted by her close friend and guide, Clay Humphreys, of the North Central Church of Christ.
Sue loved to spend time with friends and family members. She was a kind and generous person, and she believed in giving back to her community and to the world.
In lieu of flowers, she requested any memorial contributions be made to Community Kitchen, where she was a volunteer for years, or to the North Central Church of Christ Honduras Mission Fund, one that builds homes for those so desperately needing them.
