Susan K. Flora, 72, Culver, passed away Aug. 10, 2016 at her home with her family at her side.
Susan was born Aug. 6, 1944, in Logansport, the daughter of the late Eugene “Pete” and Beulah L. (Wise) Schwering. Aug. 28, 1965 Susan married Cary G. Flora and shared a lifelong partnership of love and companionship.
Susan’s early years in Culver were filled with being an amazing mother and wife. She was active in her children’s activities, baseball, softball, scouting, and she was one of the founding members of the Culver EMS. Susan was active in community affairs such as the Culver Plan Commission and the election board. She gave her time generously to many community activities and charities, and for many years was an active member of the Hoosier Old Wheels car club. Susan loved cruising in the ’47 Ford and attending many car shows in Indiana and Michigan.
In her latter years, Susan served as an example of courage and perseverance in fighting many physical issues, never complaining or giving up hope. She will always be remembered by those whose lives she touched as a lady who gave unselfishly with a quick smile.
She is survived by her husband Cary and three children: Brad (Kasi) Gast, Leslie (Brian) Sloan, and Travis (Amie) Flora. Also surviving are her grandchildren: Devin Gast, Chandler Gast, Grant Sloan, Megan Sloan, Ben Sloan, Libby Flora, Sophie Flora, Josie Flora, and great grandson Gabrial Gast. Her brother Fred (Suanne) Schwering also survives in addition to many nieces and nephews.
Susan was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Ronald (Connie) Schwering.
