Susan Maria Vieg

May 8, 1951 – July 19, 2008

Susan Maria Vieg, precious daughter, sister, niece, aunt, and friend to countless many, lost her courageous battle with cancer and passed away Saturday July 19, 2008. She was 57. Susan’s love of life and positive energy was contagious. Her personality was nothing short of engaging – she could light up a room with her presence and smile! Susan’s passions were innumerable but top of her list was her immense love and giving nature for family – especially for her nieces and nephew and close companion – her dog Buddygirl. Dear to her heart was her involvement with Habitat for Humanity. She traveled to many places in and out of the country to participate in the builds and took on any and all tasks she was given. Her stories of those times were delightful; she established an abundance of friends and had the time of her life. Her joys became ours; that was her way of sharing herself with all of us who knew her. She gave all she had and asked little in return.Susan married once but the marriage was mutually dissolved. She remained single and lived life on her terms – free to love, shop, move, travel – whatever gave her joy. She lived each day head-on and it is comforting to realize that she experienced so many diverse experiences in her short life. For a few years Susan held an official position on the North Bend City Council, she was employed as a Metro bus driver and for the past 29 years employed with the City of Seattle Public Utilities Department. No question what a void she has left there.Susan was preceded in death by her father Victor G. Vieg, niece Felicity Rose Vieg and stepfather Jack J. McLaughlin. She is survived by her mother Maggie I. McLaughlin, her brother’s Richard, Guy and Mitch, brothers-in-law Randy Collins and Rick Girdler, sister’s Nancy and Elizabeth, nieces Rachel and Natalie Collins, Irina Girdler, Alex Vieg and nephew Simon Vieg. She will be in our hearts and minds for the rest of our lives. Whenever you see a very bright star in the heavens you can be sure her brilliance is part of it. Susan, God bless your beautiful soul and your loving generous heart; we love you and will miss you forever. Until we meet again.Remembrances and donations may be sent to Habitat for Humanity. The celebration of Susan’s life will take place at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Renton, WA., August 7, 2008 at 11:00 AM. Reception will follow in the parish hall.St. Anthony Parish314 South Fourth Street Renton, WA 98057
