Susana Dolores Watson Huston Obituary
Susana "Sue" Huston was born on April 18, 1931 to Frances Jane and Alphonse Watson in Pasadena, Ca. A sixth generation Californian, she was a descendant of Juan Jose Dominguez, who in 1784, received the first Spanish land grant in California, known as Rancho San Pedro. Sue loved Pasadena and felt blessed to have lived in the same family home throughout most of her life. She attended St. Elizabeth's Elementary School, graduated from Ramona High School and later Immaculate Heart College. Sue valued and maintained many close friendships, which she continued to make throughout her life. In 1954, Sue married the love of her life, William T. Huston, who preceded her in death in 2011. Bill and Sue were the first couple to be wed in St. Bede's Church in La Canada where both remained active members. The two were happily married for 56 years. A devoted wife and mother, Sue remains in the loving hearts of her eight children and their spouses, Catherine Huston and Jerry Hurtubise, Ann Huston and Ron Hallagan, Helen and Bob Zieman, Thomas and Kathy Huston, Mary and AJ. Coulter, Robert and Beth Huston, Jean and Todd Walker, Elizabeth Huston, her nineteen grandchildren and one great grandson. Over the years Sue and Bill's family enjoyed countless fun-filled reunions with their many cousins and friends on Catalina Island (numbering over a hundred most summers). Sue was renowned for her trademark rendition of "I Left My Heart in Avalon", which she would sing, dockside, to the delight of all incoming and outgoing relatives and friends, along with many a curious onlooker. Quick witted, always with a joke at hand, Sue had a wonderful sense of humor. She was also very devoted to daily prayer and her Catholic faith. Her favorite saying summed up her philosophy of living - "Faith, family, friends and a little humor make for a great life." The Rosary will be held on Monday, November 6th at 7:00pm at St. Bede the Venerable, 215 Foothill Blvd. La Canada, CA. A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, November 7th at 10:00am also at St. Bede the Venerable Church. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Friends of Rancho San Pedro, 18127 S. Alameda St., Compton, CA 90220 or Cystic Fibrosis Foundation/Hook the Cure, 1801 E. Edinger Ave., Suite #135, Santa Ana, CA 92705. Cabot & Sons, Pasadena Directors.
