Susan Mildred Jean (Niehus)

January 23, 1955 - July 1, 2021

Susan Mildred Jean (Niehus) passed away July 1st, 2021. Sue was the fourth child of six children born to Doyle and Viola Niehus on January 23, 1955. She was born and lived nearly all of her life in Tacoma and attended Saint Leo’s High School. She spent a few years living in the California sun, but ultimately returned to Tacoma where she raised her family. Sue was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, and partner in life. She had a lovely smile and a contagious laugh that will be missed and always remembered by those that knew her best. Sue always enjoyed spending time with her family and loved singing, playing with her grandchildren whenever she had the opportunity and enjoyed shopping at estate sales and antique stores. Sue is survived by her sons Dominic (Nicole) and Gregory (Michele), her five granddaughters, Lauren, Natalie, Danielle, Nora and Keira, her life partner Gary Hayden, her brother Gary Niehus, her sisters Debbie (Dick) and Roxy and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her daughter Kathleen (Katie), both of her parents, brother Loren and sister LaVonne. Her Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, July 17th at 1pm at Tuell-McKee Funeral Home 2215 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98403.  In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to a charity of your choice in her honor and please be kind and loving to those around you.
