Susan Y. May, 81, passed away peacefully, with family at her side, in Gig Harbor, Washington on October 4, 2018. She was born in Seattle, WA (her mother in labor on the ferry from Southworth) on August 21, 1937 to Basil and Jesse Yeatman. She is deeply loved and will be missed by her family and friends. Services for Susan will be announced at a later date.
She graduated from Silverton Union High School in 1955 and attended the University of Oregon where she was an active member of the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. She worked as a flight attendant for United Airlines before leaving work to become a homemaker to her two daughters, Katherine and Angela, and later, loving grandmother to Chris and Alex.
Susan is survived by her daughter Katherine May (Chuck Gnegy), grandsons Chris Davies (MeeJee Davies), Alex Davies (Laila Caspersen-Andresen), daughter Angela May (Matthew Stevens), granddaughter Ashley Stevens, and her beloved cat, Sparky.
