Susan Smith Youngblood Obituary
YOUNGBLOOD, Susan Smith Susan Smith Youngblood, 80, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 16, 2018 at her home in Austin, Texas. Raised in Dallas, she graduated from Hillcrest High School and from SMU with a bachelor's degree in Education where she was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She married John Youngblood, Jr. and their union blessed them with three children that they raised in Austin. Susan was a beloved wife, devoted mother and grandmother and a friend to many. Her greatest pleasures were spending time with family, friends, and her cherished dachshund, Dallas. She enjoyed the outdoors with enthusiasm, especially the mountains and ocean. Her hobbies included sailing on Lake Travis and hiking in Colorado and Hawaii. She shared her creative nature through songs and loving words she wrote for special occasions. Her careers expressed her passion to make a difference in people's lives - first as a high school teacher and later as an accomplished real estate agent and broker. She was a member of the Junior League, Austin Board of Realtors and many other community organizations. She will be greatly missed by her survivors: daughters, Jane Buergner and Elizabeth (Eby) Whatley; son, John Youngblood III; and their spouses, all of Austin, Texas; ex-husband, John Youngblood, Jr. MD of Fredericksburg, TX; sister, Jane Anderson of Honolulu, HI. She has nine grandchildren, a niece and nephew. She is preceded in death by her husband, Tom Gunderson; her parents, Richard and Marie Smith of Dallas, TX. Memorial service will be held at 10:00am on Saturday, January 19th at Austin Baptist Church, 7016 Ribelin Ranch Dr, 78750.
