FAIRFAX — Susan M. Lefebvre, left for heaven early Tuesday morning, May 31, 2016 after a courageous two month battle with cancer. She did not pass alone and won’t ever be alone again.

She leaves behind her newlywed husband, William R. Lefebvre, Sr., as they had wed for a second time on May 25, 2016 since first marrying on Feb. 14, 1988. As soul mates they had finally reconnected. She leaves behind the couple’s eight children: Carrie Donna, Malcolm Donaldson, William R. Lefebvre, Jr., Kevin Donaldson, Melinda Bohanan, Joseph Lefebvre, and their son, Duane Lefebvre and Maggie May Clark.

Amongst their children they have 22 grandchildren: Jason, Chad, Savannah, Malcolm, Nathaniel, Kameron, Nevaeh, Keyanah, Skyler, Peyton, Logan, Melissa Cody, Zachary, Riley, Aiden, Skyler, Olivia, Shaylah, Peyton, Nathan, and newborn Danica. And with the recent double wedding ceremony of their daughter Melinda, they now have a great-grand son named Riley.

Her father-in-law, Fred Murray and his loving partner, Gerry Siple survive her. Susan is pre-deceased by her favorite sister, Cynthia Hance, and brothers, Lloyd Morits, Joseph Morits, John Morits, and George Morits. Susan is survived by sisters, Linda Brunelle, Alberta Gadue, Joanne Gardner, and brothers, Wilfred Sonny Morits, Paul Morits, Arthur Morits, and Erwin Morits, and of course, their many loving spouses. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and cousins who she loved very much too numerous to mention.

Susan joined the Air Force in 1988 when she was 30 years old, which was quite an accomplishment in itself but then completed an amazing 28-year career after that having being forced into retirement December 31, 2015 before completing her goal of 30 years and 60 years of age. She was also prematurely discharged without being able to complete her Degree from the Community College of the Air Force lacking only several classes.

She earned many honors and ribbons and medals and accolades during her long military career and she was such an incredible life’s success story. She will be truly missed by all her knew her and she has made such a difference in so many people’s lives.

Visiting hours will be from 5 to 8 p.m. at A W Rich Funeral Home in Fairfax on Thursday, June 2, and church service on Friday at 11 a.m. at St Luke’s parish in Fairfax. Burial will follow in Fairfax Plains Cemetery in Fairfax. The family also invites you to share your memories and condolences by visiting www.awrfh.com.
