Susan A. Sujka Obituary
Sujka, Susan A.



Susan A. Sujka (Sue), 71, of Chandler Arizona, died on February 1, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born October 3, 1944 in Moberly, Missouri, to Dr. CA Stryjewski and Mary Stryjewski. She grew up in Artesia, NM where her father was the town's physician. She graduated from New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in 1966, and then moved to Albuquerque NM to pursue her career. She retired in 2004 from a long and successful career of teaching math, physics, and photonics at TVI Community College. After her retirement, she moved to Chandler, Arizona to be closer to her daughter.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bernard Sujka (age 50); her only son, Eric Sujka (age 12); and her parents.

She is survived by her sisters, Sylvia Johnson of Lake Arthur, NM, and Bonnie Sego of Los Lunas, NM. She is also survived by her daughter Kristin Diegle of Gilbert, AZ; her son-in-law Chad Diegle, who she loved like her own; and her two grandsons Dylan and Collin Diegle.

Sue will be remembered as a wonderful teacher, friend and mother. She loved to cook, travel, and read, but most of all she loved spending time with her friends and loved ones.

The memorial service will be held as Desert Cross Lutheran Church (Gilbert Campus), 3225 S. Lindsay Rd., Gilbert, Arizona at 10:00am on 2/6/16. A casual celebration of her life will be held that same evening at 5:30p at Sue's house, 1258 E. Thompson Way, Chandler, AZ 85286.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Desert Cross Lutheran Church, 8600 S. McClintock Dr., Tempe, AZ 85284.
