December 15, 1955 - September 12, 2021
On Sunday, September 12th, 2021, Susan Jo Booker, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away at the age of 65. Susan was born on December 15th, 1955, in Chicago, IL to Charles and Joyce Good. Susan moved with her family to California when she was 16 years old. Susan received her nursing degree from LA County/USC Nursing Program and started working as a neo-natal ICU nurse. On May 30th, 1981, she married John Booker and after he completed Family Practice Residency Training, they settled in Visalia in 1984. Together they raised 3 children, Sara, Evan, and Emily. Susan worked as a visiting home nurse and, later, she became a school nurse at multiple local elementary schools, retiring in 2012. Susan was a caring, vivacious person who's joy and energy for life will always be remember by her family and friends. Susan was always happy to offer an open ear and be the first to help in any situation. To Susan, her children always came first and she was their loudest cheerleader. Her husband, John, was her best friend and she loved nothing more than traveling the world with him. From skiing at Kirkwood, walking the beach in Cayucos with their dog Jake, snorkeling in Hawaii, and wherever else the wind blew them, John and Sue could always be seen walking hand-in-hand. Susan is survived by her husband John, children Sara, Evan, and Emily, grandchildren Wyatt and Flynn, sister Deborah, as well as several nieces and nephews. Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life service on Saturday, September 18th at the First Presbyterian Church in Visalia at 1pm, masks are encouraged.
