November 9th 1963 – November, 30th 2021.

Susannah “Susan” Beth Williams, Age 58, passed away in the company of both her sons at Regional West Hospital in Scottsbluff, NE. She is survived by her parents Harold Clyde Williams and Sherolyn Ann (Davis) Williams, Sister Shelly Kercheval, and her sons Brandon Michael Meadows and Braxton Carter Burks.

Susannah was born on November 9th, 1963, in Los Angeles, California. After moving to Colorado at a young age with her family, she always considered it to be home. She was a devoted Mother, Sister, Daughter, Christian and Nurse.

She was a natural caregiver that had a passion for working with children and was naturally drawn to nursing. Her career in nursing started in 1991 after she received a degree in Comprehensive Practical Nursing from the Community College of Denver. Later in life, she continued her education at Kingwood College, University of Texas Medical Branch, and CU Denver.

After working in long term care facilities and hospitals, she found her true calling in home healthcare as a pediatric ventilator nurse. She adored working with kids and helping families of the children she worked with. Her work took her all over the country, most notably Alaska!

She had a tremendous spirit and was the most compassionate, giving, loving, kind, thoughtful, faith-filled person you will ever meet. Her study of the Bible knew no bounds. She was published in Christian scientific publications for her work in deciphering and understanding the true meaning of the word of God.

Her purpose was caregiving. Her passion was travel! Her national parks passport tells the tale. I’ve stopped counting after seventy-five stamps. Many pictures illustrate her journeys and her epic trip to work in Alaska for a season traveling the great Alaska highways in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and ran to Delta Junction, Alaska, via Whitehorse, Yukon with her favorite travel companion (Shout out to KM ?).

Lastly, Susannah’s faith in God defined her actions on earth. Her gigantic heart for genuine caring was not only fueled by her faith, but it was also the cornerstone of her personality and left a memorable impact on the people she met.

A graveside service will be held at Lyons Cemetery in Lyons Colorado December 9th, 2021 at 11am and a celebration of life later that day. We request that In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Children’s Hospital Foundation or UNICEF. Also, you can celebrate Susannah digitally at Susannah’s last gift.

We will miss you dearly.


“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

Continually serving others is a form of expressing our faith in and to God. When we start to grow weary in our serving, we can be reenergized in our commitment by knowing that he sees us, and he will not forget.

  4. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything you taught me and all the love you shared. You were truly one of the kindest, most loving and patient human beings I have ever met. I feel beyond blessed to have had you as a mother. You touched more lives and hearts than you probably ever knew, including mine. I don’t know what I did to have deserved such a wonderful mother, teacher and friend, but I will forever be grateful nonetheless. I will try to live up to the lessons you taught me (even if I stumble frequently) and pass on all the good you taught me to my children.

    I would say that I will miss our long talks that would shoot off into a 1000 different topics, but in truth, I know you’re still listening, so I will keep talking and try to shut up long enough to hear your replies.

    I will love you forever, hold you in my heart and hope & pray to see you again some day. Thank you, mom.

She would come here for few days & leave a hole in my heart.wouldcmiss here. She was so sweet to everyone. She LOVED PEOPLE, period! Any one who knew her,loved her.. she taught me much thur the years. She knew how to live off grid even years ago. Knew how to ruff it wherever she went or lived.. very independent, had such a tender heart. Always had a smile.. / a laugh. Cutting up over something.

  6. When I think about working with Susannah, I see her energy, determination and love for her patient. She knew her well, both her medical history and her personality, love for things that it took time and caring to recognize. And show me, too, how to see beyond the visible. Look for the interest or lack of it and don’t be afraid to talk about anything, including deep spiritual Christian topics. When our patient needed something, Susannah knew if it was new or had been like it before, if it was isolated or related to something else, what it could cause and to look for other problems. She was the leader I needed to follow and trusted to see practical things, daily. She was wise beyond her years. Her example of caring and making every day better will live on. She will be greatly missed as our head nurse and wonderful Christian.

  7. I remember talking with Susannah about how she received her first Bible. Her church said if a person memorized a list of scriptures, that person would be given a Bible on a certain day after saying the scriptures for the church. Susannah spent time regularly with her elderly neighbor, who offered use of her Bible, and learned all the scriptures. On the designated day, when she asked about saying the scriptures to get her Bible, she was told that this was for the adults, they were really surprised Susannah knew the list of scriptures. She was worried she wasn’t going to get her Bible, but soon that fear was over as they allowed her to say the scriptures and receive her Bible! The start of a wonderful journey of scripture memory and Bible reading!

    Susannah was a wonderful nurse, knowledgeable and kind. I know because I worked beside her and saw the results of her care and was the recipient of much of her knowledge. Those entrusted to her care and those working with her were truly blessed. She leaves us better than we were before, that is truly a legacy. One morning she asked me if I knew Psalm 143:8 Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto Thee.

    John 14: 1-2 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

  8. Thank you Susannah for your Love and Devotion to our daughter, Amy, and our entire family. You became a part of our family and we miss you every day. You became Amy’s best friend and the two of you had an amazing connection that was beautiful to see. You gave Amy a way of communicating and her eyes would light up for you. You always managed to get a smile from her. You taught us so much about Amy and life itself. You were such a huge part of our family. Our family photographer during many celebrations and holidays over the past 10 years. We shared a lot of laughs and tears together. We were truly Blessed to have known you and have you in our home caring for Amy. We will Love you Forever.
    Love Pat, George and Amy
