...in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them. (Psalm 139: 9-10; 16.b)
Susan Elaine Kaiser, a faithful and deeply loved servant of God, was welcomed home into the presence of her Lord on May 11, 2021 at 72 years of age.
Sue was born to Morley and Marjorie Carr on December 28, 1948. Her enduring faith, her compassion, and her sense of humor took its root from an early age while growing up in a large family in rural Dresden, Ontario. Sue graduated from the Public General Hospital School of Nursing in Chatham, Ontario, an early reflection of a lifetime dedicated to giving care and comfort to others. She continued to serve others by working alongside her husband Dan Kaiser to maintain a family business while building a family. She wrapped up her service career by volunteering with Care Net Pregnancy Service in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, a continued reflection of her dedication to share faith, hope, and love with others.
Sue was introduced to Daniel Lloyd Kaiser when they both attended a Bible conference in Toledo Ohio, in 1970. They were married on December 18, 1971, and together they built a family with five children in Columbus, Ohio. What a hopeful, joyful, and loving home it was! I cannot express how dearly loved Susan is, as a daughter, sister, wife, and mother. What comfort, hope, and strength we’ve all drawn from her ﹘ through her continual words of encouragement, through her constant prayers, and through the living example of a faithful life. She teaches us, through her example, to “rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (Rom. 12: 12)
Susan was preceded in death by her parents Morley and Marjorie Carr, and by her brother Paul. Those of us who will come behind her include her brother Larry Carr, her sisters Linda Christensen, Carolyn Walker, and Sherri Carr, her husband Dan Kaiser, her daughters Carrie Cronk and Carla Vaughan, her sons Daniel, Scott, and Mark Kaiser, and her many grandchildren.
A funeral will be held at the Shaw-Davis Funeral Home in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday, May 15, at 10:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, a memorial contribution may be directed to an organization that is dear to Sue’s heart.
She is treasured, she is missed, and she is one who we all strive to follow. Her entire family calls her blessed, and a blessing. She leaves a legacy of joyful endurance and hope, resting in the assurance that each of her children have shared in her source of strength and hope: a trust in the promises of our Lord Jesus Christ. Like Susan, may those of us who come behind her also hope to be able to say, in the end,
I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith… (2 Timothy 4: 7)
As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness. (Ps. 17: 15)
