Susan was preceded in death by her parents as well as husband David Simek, son John Bradley (JB) Mikeska and brother Delbert Peters. Susan always loved a good thrift store or bargain. There was not a garage sale she would pass up. She was a kind and gentle person who enjoyed life and loved spending time with family and friends. She was always there to brighten the lives of others. Susan was loved and adored by all those who knew her. She could light up the room with her beautiful smile and sense of humor. Susan valued family above all else. She talked often about the love she felt for her family and how extremely proud she was of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The best way to honor Susan’s memory is simply to make someone smile today. Memorials may be made in Susan’s memory to a charity of your choice.

To my dear Susan, My Dearest Friend. We grew up together, went to school together. You were in my wedding and I was in yours. Your family was my family and my family was yours. You are truly dearly missed. Heaven has gained an angel.

Susan- what fun you were to be around. We met at the clinic. You and David. We had some laughs. Whenever I would run in to you it was like old times.
What a special person : always a smile, always a good laugh, and always always the gift of making others feel comfortable and right at home.
You are with the love of your life now and I know how much you missed him.
Rest In Peace Susan. ❤️❤️❤️
