Susan J. Welton
TULSA, Okla. - Susan J. (Vanorsdale) Welton passed away on Dec. 10, 2019. She was 80 years old.
Susan was born on June 8, 1939, to her parents Paul E. and Viola V. (Lambert) Vanorsdale in Westernport.
Susan graduated from Bruce High School in Westernport, and went on to graduate from Memorial Hospital's School of Nursing in Cumberland.
Susan worked as a Registered Nurse, dedicated to caring for others, for 40 years.
She was adventurous of spirit and lived in Maryland, Taiwan, Texas, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Mexico, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma.
Her favorite places were Westernport, of which she often spoke of the wonderful times she shared with family and friends, and New Mexico where she shared her life with her partner of 16 years, George Stewart, until his passing.
She is survived by her brother, Donald Vanorsdale and wife, Kathy of Spring Valley, Ohio; sister, Sharon Martin and husband, Ron of Frederick; son, Sanford Welton and wife, Penny of Decatur Ill.; and daughter, Adair Welton and wife, Nena of Tulsa. She had 4 grandchildren of whom she was very proud Kristina, Jacquelyn, Jonathan and Jeffrey, and four great-grandchildren.
Susan fought heart disease for more than 15 years. She was grateful to all of her doctors, but Warren Clinic Cardiology, and St. Francis Hospital, in Tulsa made the greatest differences in our lives over the past 5 years. Oklahoma Methodist Manor was her last home. We are very grateful to those who provided excellent and compassionate care for her and consider them extended family.
Susan never liked being the center of attention and per her wishes there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial contribution in Susan's name to Oklahoma Methodist Manor, Kindful Hospice or The American Heart Association.
Cremation arrangements are entrusted to Schaudt Tulsa Funeral Service.
