Susan Massey Stawasz of Greenwood, LA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 20, 2021, surrounded by her family after a lengthy illness. Susan was born on March 29, 1945, in Shreveport, Louisiana to Bess Faucett and Theophilus (Theo) Massey.

Susan grew up in Shreveport. She graduated from Fair Park High School in 1963.

Susan went on to marry her lifelong love, Frank Stawasz. Upon marrying Frank, she joined First Presbyterian Church, Shreveport. She was an active member of the church, serving as a Youth Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and Deacon.
Susan loved the outdoors; whether at Caddo Lake or the backyard, the outdoors made her happy. Susan was blessed with a green thumb. She was often found working in her garden, growing vegetables, and beautiful flowers. As an avid reader, you would often find her reading.

Our hearts are hurting... Susan was a sweet friend. We enjoyed our times together planning reunions for Fair Park, class of 63 reunions. Frank always had some news to report about their favorite city... Greenwood. Thinking of all the family during this time. Our prayers continue.

My heart is sad today but what fun memories I have of time spent with Susan as we grew to adults and later with Susan and Frank as a couple. Memories last.

I went to high school with Susan, not jr. high as I can remember. I´m certain we had classes together, but time has dimmed lots of those memories. We both graduated from NSU, but were in different strains of pursuits. My husband and I attended First Pres. for about a year or so as was raised Pres. at Fairfield, but don´t remember running into Susan there or anywhere all those years. So sorry to hear of her passing. Do plan to attend the memorial service next week. It´s scary at our age and all those that may be lined up for those pearly gates; at least plan to be in that line like Susan. Comfort and care sent to her family.
