YORK – Susan Cauthen Gipson Bennehoff died Dec. 28, 2018, at her home in York.
Born in Lancaster, Susan was a loving daughter of the late Lib Roddey and Richard Cauthen and a devoted sister of Libby Woodruff and her husband, Jeff, of Columbia and Merrio Morton and her husband, Jim, of Lancaster and Hendersonville, N.C.
She was predeceased by her former husband and the love of her life, Ray Gipson.
Following her former husband's death from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Susan pursued a degree in nursing and became a loving and compassionate registered nurse. She was a dedicated hospice nurse who put the care and comfort of her patients and their families above all else. Her tender care was acknowledged and appreciated by so many families she had the privilege of encountering.
Susan was known for her selfless generosity, always finding ways to show she cared. She loved giving little surprises to her sisters, and no sister was more loving and loyal than "SueSue." She also enjoyed having fun with her friends and buddies in Clover.
Susan loved and cared for her pets as if they were children. She sadly lost her precious 19-year-old Harley, along with Kit Kat and Hayden, all within a short time in 2017.
Honoring Susan's instructions, there will be no memorial service. She requested cremation with her ashes to be scattered at the beach along with the ashes of her beloved Harley.
Surviving in addition to her sisters and brothers-in law are her son, Jason Lee Stroud, and her nephew, U.S. Army Capt. Will Woodruff (Lesley) of Killeen, Texas. Other survivors are her aunts, Irene Harper of Lancaster, Faye Wilson (Jerry) of Memphis, Tenn., and many wonderful cousins.
After struggling with depression for many years, Susan is no longer suffering. Though heartbroken, her family is comforted knowing that she is at peace. Her beautiful face, beautiful smile, beautiful blue eyes and kind-hearted spirit will be terribly missed. May God bless her.
