Susan M. Mason

Susan M. Mason, 68, St. Joseph, Missouri, came into the presence of the Lord on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at her home.
She was born April 16, 1949, to George K. Heckel and Louise (Brock) Heckel in St. Joseph. Upon the death of her mother, she was raised by her father and Achsah (Prather) Heckel.
Susan graduated from Central High School and attended Northwest Missouri State University.
She married Ed Mason on June 7, 1970 and enjoyed her many years as a homemaker.
Susan was deeply devoted to her faith and family and will be remembered for her love of people, her enthusiasm, her hospitality and faithful service to others. Susan had numerous health challenges, but was a prayer warrior who continually found ways to be used by God and gathered her strength from the authority of God’s Word. Aside from faith, family and friends, Susan loved gardening, crafts, and the beach.
She was preceded in death by her father; birth mother, Louise Brock; mom, Achsah M. Prather; and sister, Jan Boyd.
Survivors include her husband; two children, Scott Mason (Margaret), Gastonia, North Carolina, and Katherine Cole (Tom), Liberty, Missouri; grandchildren, Anna, Logan, Abigail, and Adam; two sisters, Deborah Klein (Bill) and Trish Pooley; any many treasured extended family and friends.
