August 7, 1953 - June 6, 2022
Susan Elaine Hockett, 68, died on June 06, 2022, following an emergency surgery. She was a born again Christian and is now at peace and at home with the Lord. Susan was born August 07, 1953, in Longview Washington. She attended public school in Portland Oregon and graduated from Oregon College of Education in Monmouth Oregon, with a Bachelor of Science degree.
Susan met her husband of 46 years, Steve at a Christian Fellowship while attending OCE. Susan and Steve were married August 23, 1975, in Portland, Oregon. Susan is survived by their three children: Sam and his wife Lindsey Hockett and their four children Billy Benson, Nick Hanson, Elena Barela, and Xander Hockett; Sarah and her husband Chad Hildebrandt and their two children Courtney and Savannah; Stacie and her husband Lorne Martin and their three children Kaylie, Kendle and Kolby.
Susan also had two sisters, Ann Flanigan and Linda Barrett. Linda (deceased) and her husband Tom (deceased) and their four children; Debbie and her husband Mark Solie, Jackie and her husband Gene Bowen, Richard and his wife Cheryl Barrett, and Mike and his wife Kendra Barrett were all a very important part of Susan’s family.
Although Susan wanted to be a Paleontologists her parents, Rolf and Bernice Didrickson (deceased) convinced Susan to study education. Her education became a passion and evolved into a 30-year career. Susan loved the third graders but also taught 1 – 3 and spent several years as a Librarian. Because of her desire to not only teach but love her students she quite often was given the “tuff” kids. After retiring Susan helped at Experience Church Co-op School, traveled to Nepal with a mission team and enjoyed traveling to new places and crafting. The most important part of retirement was connecting with her children and grandchildren.
Susan was preceded in death by her parents Rolf and Bernice Didrickson, sister and brother in-law Linda and Tom Barrett, son Joseph Didrick Hockett, and granddaughter McKenzie Hildebrandt.
