Susan Marie Loscutoff

Loscutoff, Susan

d. Jan. 8, 2014

Susan Marie Loscutoff died Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, after living with multiple sclerosis for more than 20 years. Susan is lovingly remembered by the families of her three sons (including two granddaughters), all Loscutoff and Carlson relatives, her generous neighbors, a host of nurses and an army of UC Davis students who helped her with dinner and provided immense support.

Despite her disease, Susan maintained an enormous degree of independence and control: planning her own care, maintaining a household and hosting family dinners and events. The unexpected loss of a mother, teacher, confidant, taskmaster and friend shocked all. Susan battled against devastating setback time and time again, helping those around her find solace and normalcy in a storm of disease and hardship.

Her strength, positivity, character, and love lives in all who had the opportunity to share time with her. We move forward knowing tomorrow is a little less bright but that the world is better immensely for her being in it.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at University Covenant Church, 315 Mace Blvd. in Davis.

    Susan, You sound like an amazing woman and I never met you. My loss. You will be truly missed. Your children lost a great mom and friend but they will never lose the powerful positive influence you have left on there lives. May God's peace be your whole family! Maybe God assure everyone that everything will be alright. You fought the big fight and in my opinion, you won big time. Tim DiGuardi (a friend of Will's)

    I am so sad to hear that Susan passed away so suddenly. I spoke with her in October and had planned on visiting her on her upcoming birthday, Feb. 5th this week. It would have been a special day as she and I always teased each other about who was getting older first. We were only 3 1/2 months apart in age. We had so much to talk about when we saw each other and I will truly miss her courage and positive attitude. We met working for the State Food and Drug Branch over 20 years ago and a true friendship began. She was so proud of her three sons and was so happy to have such beautiful grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this sad time. Susan was an amazing individual and I am so proud to have called her my friend. Rest in peace my friend. Rhonda Gardner
