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.
