Susan ‘Sue’ Elizabeth Edwards Powell became our angel on Feb. 25, 2013, surrounded by her loving family in her family home. Susan was born Jan. 16, 1962, to the late Amanda and Paul Edwards of Napa.
Sue was a loving mother to her daughter, Christina Edwards; stepdaughters, Vanessa Cook Visino and Jennie Powell Sotelo; and her stepson, Joshua Cook.
She is survived by her children; her sister, Diane Shibley and husband Dave; niece and nephew, Mary Sue and Fred Thomason; brother, Douglas Edwards and wife Shelley; niece, Brandi Alexander; husband, Kevin with Eli and Emma; nephews, Doug Edwards and wife Raquel with McKensie, and Jacob Edwards. She is also survived by sister-in-law Suzie Edwards; nephews Brandon Edwards and wife Nicole, and Trevor Edwards; and Aunt Margie and Uncle Robert Burke, Aunt Shirley and Uncle Gene Lins, Uncle Ray and Aunt Joyce. She is survived by many friends, including George, Yvonne and William Scott.
Susan was predeceased by her parents; brother, Paul David Edwards; husband, Kip Powell; ex-husband and friend, John Cook; brother-in-law, Fred Thomason; and many friends who left us too soon.
Susan dedicated her life to her family and her good friends. She was the sweetest, gentlest person we’ve ever known and she will be missed. Susan was a supporter of the American Cancer Society and asked that donations be directed to “Sue’s Angels” Relay For Life team in American Canyon, so that the hard work continues.
Her memorial service will be at noon on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at the American Canyon Community Church, 2 Andrew Road, American Canyon. Arraignments by Napa Valley Memorial Park Mortuary.
