Susan Roussel Jones was born on June 23, 1950 in New Orleans, LA to the late Lloyd Louis Roussel and the late Beulah Perque Roussel. After a long and hard battle with breast cancer, she passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 6, 2019 at home surrounded by her family.
She is survived by her loving husband, Larry David Jones. They were married for 28 wonderful years. She is survived by her only daughter, Bridget Guidry Brown married to Kevin Brown and her grandchildren, Kevin Brown Jr. and Kaylin Brown. She is also survived by her sister Sally Carroll (Joseph) and niece Stacey Ducombs. She was preceded in death by her other sister Rosalind “Roz” Ducombs (Larry). She is also survived by many loving cousins, family members, and dear friends.
Susan worked as a substitute teacher at Harahan Elementary, Hazel Park Elementary, and Jefferson Elementary. She loved helping and watching the kids learn and grow. She became a part of each school’s family very quickly with her welcoming demeanor. She loved to travel with family and friends. She loved going out to eat and try new places. Her weekend ritual was going to the movies and out to eat with her sister, Sally. She loved people and could strike up a conversation with anyone anywhere. She loved spending time with her family near and far, but her pride and joy, however, was her grandchildren. She would do anything for them. She loved attending Kevin’s soccer games and Kaylin’s dance recitals. She will surely be missed by many. Services will be held Friday, October 11, 2019 at Garden of Memories 4900 Airline Drive, Metairie, LA 7001. Visitation will be held from 10am – 12pm and a short mass to follow at 12pm.
