Susan “Sue” Ostrom, 59, passed away Sunday, February 10, 2019.

A celebration of Sue's life will be held at 4:00 pm on Friday, March 15, 2019 at St. John Catholic Church in Borger.

Sue was born November 1, 1959 in Germany to Walter and Elizabeth Stempinski. She was a member of St. John Catholic Church. Susan enjoyed cooking and crocheting, in fact she had become affectionately known as the “blanket lady.” She received this title because of her generous and loving spirit, seeing a chance to help others in the cancer center, she made blankets for all those walking the same path. Nothing brought more joy to her life than her grandbabies, Katy and Charlie.

She is preceded in death by her son, Daniel Heady; and step-daughter, Nicole Macklin.

Survivors include her husband, Dave of Fritch; daughter, Sarah Archer and husband Colin of Fritch; two grandchildren, Katelyn and Charles; parents, Walter and Elizabeth Stempinski of El Paso; sisters, Mary Telles-Goins and husband Richard of El Paso, Pamela Taggart and husband Keith of Spring Branch; nieces, Samantha Telles-Goins of Milton, Florida, Emily Hernandez and husband Alvaro of Portland, Oregon, Stephanie Taggart of College Station; stepchildren, Erica Winter and husband Chris, Scott Ostrom and wife Odette; and step-grandson, Nathan.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, 3915 Bell St. Amarillo, Texas 79109.

    I met Sue back in 1986. There are many fond memories, from ours kids playing together, enjoying each others company, and cooking. Sue was the best cook. I actually still have a couple of her recipes. Over the years us being in different states we lost contact with each other. We had recently reconnected. I had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Sue was great support to me, even with her battle with cancer. Sue you will always be in my heart.

    She was well loved! I only knew her for a short time but I really liked her a lot. I told her once that if we’d lived closer I thought we would be great friends. She answered back I know we would!
