Susan Catherine Perich passed from this world the evening of Sunday March 5, 2023 while at rest with her husband Howard Klopak by her side holding her hand.
She felt the presence of family, David, Doug, Wesley and Kristen, in her final weeks and days as well as many close friends that helped so much along the way.
Susan joins her mother Marilynn and father Ted (Theodore) Perich in the journey after life.
Susan had chosen to forgo a formal ceremony. A small celebration of her life will be planned for the future.
All who knew Susan, knew how she absolutely loved all animals, had many rescues, at times to the point of pushing the boundaries of the law. For those who wish to honor her memory in a meaningful way, in lieu of flowers, donations in Susan’s name can be made to Tails of Freedom Rescue.
This really resonated with Susan:
Be compassionate to all living things
Live a simple life
Trust all people equally
Be kind to each other
Respect other people's rights to be different
Do your best in everything you do
And as all of her iPad emails ended:
Sent from Susan’s Tricorder
Live Long and Prosper!
Until we meet again:
Susan Catherine Perich
1960 - 2023
‘You are loved’
A tribute video for Susan will be posted at a future date.
