Einan's Funeral Home

Susan L. Monk 'Suzie' age 60, passed away Saturday, January 2, 2010 at her home in Richland, Washington. Susan was born July 31, 1949 in Richland, Washington, to Ron and Peggy Stull. In 1968, she married Todd Gilmore Jr. at the Richland Alliance Church. Susan lived in the Tri-Cities most of her life.

Susan is survived by her only daughter Kristina Gilmore, of Spokane, WA.; sisters Peggy Johnson, of Cle Elm; Brenda (Don) Draper, of Richland; and two brothers: Ronnie (Katie) Stull, of Olympia; and Steve (Norma Corrado) Stull, of Richland. Susan had many nieces and nephews which she loved dearly.

Susan was preceded in death by her father and mother, Ronald and Peggy Stull, maternal grandparents, Jesse and Ruth Kelly; and her great-uncle Everett and Ethel Selman of Republic, Washington.

The love of her life was her daughter, Kristina. Her passions were her cats, horses, fishing, container gardening, ceramics, floral arranging, and taking long walks at Howard Amon Park. She enjoyed reading books, and for many years she had been a bible student with the Kingdom Hall. In her teens, she was featured in an article in the Tri-City Herald about how she saved her horse during a flood on the Yakima River.

Many of her family and friends will gather on Saturday, January 16, 2009 at 2:00 PM near the boat dock on Lee Blvd in Richland for one more walk in Susan's memory. At 3:00 everyone who wishes may join the family at the home of her sister Brenda Draper, 1255 Chardonnay Drive, Richland, Washington.
