Goodbye, Sweet Friend

Susan Elaine Cardwell Owen, 56 of Round Rock, Texas, passed away February 5, 2011. Susan was born in Baytown, Texas, on August 17, 1954. She was the oldest of three children born to Wayne and Katherine Cardwell.

Susan graduated from McCallum High School in 1972 and later earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston. She married her Jr. High sweetheart, Roger Owen, on April 22, 1972, and they had two sons, Starsky Shane Cardwell Owen and Clint Alden Cardwell Owen.

Susan was a person transformed by the love of Christ. She was absolutely selfless in her constant care for her family and young grandchildren. Her passion for children and Christian education was evident in her 25 years of service at Round Rock Christian Academy – where she worked as a Teacher, Principal, and Administrator. Her giving spirit was also clearly seen in the time and energy she and Roger invested in the elementary students of Central Baptist Church.

I wish I could have known Susan. I love it that she is described first as a "person transformed by the love of Christ."

I'm sorry for your loss.
