Susan Lee Teeters

July 6, 1945 — September 21, 2017

Susan Lee (Monaghan) Teeters was born in San Francisco on July 6, 1945. She was a bright, sweet and curious little girl. She grew up in Vallejo California graduating from St. Vincents High School and then UC Berkeley. Spending time with her extended family was a highlight of her childhood. Her favorite childhood memories were the family trips to Yosemite. She loved to tell us about the ride to Yosemite in the back of their '49 Plymouth with her and her sister, Pattie, on top of all the gear. In Yosemite she developed a deep love for the outdoors.

After meeting on a blind date and then falling in love, she married Glen Teeters in 1968. They lived together in Concord, California for over 30 years, raising their children there. She was a devoted and loving mother to her 2 children Brian and Stacey. Brian has special needs. No one has had a greater advocate and champion than he had in his mom! Her children would tell you that their mother was brilliant, fun and devoted. She went back to school to become a marriage, family and child therapist doing an amazing job of juggling motherhood, graduate school and a job. She was an inspiration to those around her in so many ways. As a christian family therapist, she was able to touch many lives and share her wisdom and amazing faith in her Almighty Savior.

Susan and Glen often dreamed of living in the mountains with better access to God's beautiful creation. Following that dream, they moved to Auburn in 2002. She loved kayaking, fly fishing, and was content to just sit for hours on or near water. Lake Tahoe was particularly dear to her.

With the birth of her two beautiful granddaughters, Hannah and Abigail Bowman, her nurturing and creative passion bloomed spending as much time with them as possible. They relocated to Loomis in 2012 to be even closer to their grandkids. Her grandchildren would tell you she was loving, helpful, creative and could make anything. She was an excellent seamstress. Sewing up just about anything they could think of from doll clothes to a hanging parachute chair.

Susan was an amazing woman who accomplished much, but that is not the legacy she chose to leave behind. All who knew her well, knew that the most important thing in her life was her relationship with Jesus Christ. The desire of her heart was to serve Him and be an instrument for others to know Him and experience His love for them.

She will be greatly missed, but her legacy of faith is an enduring gift for us all.
