Susan Mable (nee Morse) Brungardt
Leavenworth - Susan died 23 July 2021, in Leavenworth, KS, at age 78.
She was born 9 September 1942 in Port Angeles, W A, to Grant C. and Margaret (nee Pope) Morse. She was their only child, though she had a half-brother from her father's first marriage. Around age three, she and her mother moved to Hawaii to join her father, living on the island of Oahu until she went to college. She earned a Bachelors in Mathematics from Pomona College in California, following that up some years later with a second Bachelors in Accounting from St. Mary College.
She moved to Kansas in 1964, and to Leavenworth in 1972. Susan made her home in Leavenworth from then until her death. For 10 years, she worked as a travel agent (ajob she'd previously held in both Hawaii and Kansas) for International Tours. She left there to work for Heatron, Inc, starting in 1982 as an office manager, and retiring as their Accounting Manager in 2003.
In her spare time and especially in retirement, she enjoyed watching sports, particularly Kansas City Chiefs football and University of Kansas basketball, as well as watching or attending the odd Kansas City Royals game. For a number of years, Susan also enjoyed philanthropic work which included working with the Leavenworth Assistance Center, Catholic Charities and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. She also enjoyed reading and keeping up on politics and current events.
Susan is survived by her son, Patrick, of La Vista, NE, his spouse, LeAnne Foust, DMA, -and their three canine "furkids." She was preceded in death by her parents and her half-brother, Richard Twining.
The family requests that memorials be made to the Leavenworth Assistance Center.
Celebration of Life will be held at Davis Funeral Chapel on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 from 5 to 7 P.M. Condolences may be left on Susan's online guestbook at www.davisfuneralchapelinc.com.
