Susan was born on May 23, 1954 in Perth Amboy Hospital in New Jersey to
parents H. Claire Lueddeke (McKnight) and Kenneth Lueddeke. She resided
in Newark, NJ and later Kenilworth, NJ for most of her life before moving to
her dream beach home in Ocean Grove, NJ in 2017.
Susan was married to Steven Washuta for 19 years before he passed away
from cancer in 2000. Susan is survived by her children Abby, Steven and
Rebecca, and her siblings, William, Paul, Robin, Lois, Ellen and Albert, as well
as many nieces and nephews. Her brothers, Kenneth and Michael,
Susan raised her family in Kenilworth, NJ and was a devoted wife and mother,
committed to her children’s education and success. Susan was an artist at
heart and expressed this love through everything she did including gardening,
cooking, painting and decorating. Susan was also a dedicated employee for
many years at Bederson LLP. Susan’s colleagues became her “work-family”
and her time there resulted in many lifelong friendships.
Susan’s relationships were very important to her; she was a loyal friend and
confidante to all of her loved ones. She especially adored her husband,
Steven, and their three children. Her love of life and laughter touched all who
had the pleasure of knowing and meeting her. Susan’s strength and
determination will live on in the memories of those she has left behind. She is
gone, but never forgotten.
A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, October 1st at Nomahegan Park,
