Hazel Suzanne "Susie" was born on Feb. 9, 1956, in Jacksonville, Fla. She was the daughter of Richard and Yevonne Baker Reichardt. Because they moved often, Susie attended many schools, earned her GED and attended Kirkwood Community College. Susie was united in marriage to Michael Alan Yerington on Nov. 27, 1971, in the Rochester United Methodist Church. Susie worked for over 40 years as the engineering manager for Wabash Transformer. She was a faithful wife, mother, grandmother and sister, a member of the Methodist faith, a past member of the Women of the Moose and a homemaker.
Susie is survived by her husband, Mike Yerington; her son, Alan Yerington of Florida; two grandchildren, Autumn and Ariel Yerington; brothers, Richard E. Reichardt of Iowa, Ronald E. Reichardt of New York and Reed E. Reichardt of North Carolina; and mother-in-law, Beverly Yerington of Iowa.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Walter.
A special thank-you to the staff at the Mercy Hospice Unit and the Iowa City Hospice nurses.
