Obituary of Susan G. Joslin
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE THERE IS A CHANGE IN DATE FOR SUSAN'S SERVICES
Susan Grace Joslin (74) passed from this mortal existence on January 20, 2022 in the same hospital, St. Joe’s Wayne, where she served so many years as Nurse Manager of the ICU and CCU units. She later also worked at St. Mary’s General Hospital in Passaic.
She was born on June 27, 1947 in Woodbury, New Jersey to Gilbert and Grace Joslin of Pitman, New Jersey, one of three girls. She was very popular in high school, famous for her sense of humor and for being the life of the party.
After high school, Sue attended Wayne General School of Nursing and then went on to earn her BSN at William Paterson University. Everyone will agree that her kindness and gentleness, combined with her compassion and expertise was inspiring to her co-workers and patients alike.
She dearly loved all of her nieces and nephews; they would all gather around her when she went to visit, everyone loved Aunt Sue “Super Nurse,” as family lovingly called her.
Jackie, the childhood dog, often joined her on the roof of his dog house where she would sing to him or tell him all her troubles. She loved all animals, especially her sweet cats, the last of which was Bella who is missing her greatly.
Music was a big part of her life. As children, the three sisters did a lot of harmonizing in the backseat of their dad’s old Chevy, not to mention singing with Mickey and other nurse friends. Playing the drums with great abandon was another pastime. People will remember the hospital talent shows and yearly extravaganzas.
Susan had many hobbies, to name a few, she loved making amazing doll houses, cooking and, in her retirement her adventures took the form of computer games. She loved gardening and fishing in Montauk, where she spent many September vacations.
Sue is survived by her older sister Dianne Walker in St. George, Utah and her younger sister Jayne and husband Ahmad Corbitt in Layton, Utah and all the nieces and nephews who adored her, great nieces and nephews, extended family, and many loving friends who will sorely miss her.
The family and her friends are so thankful to all the doctors and nurses who so lovingly cared for her in her last days.
Visiting will be held from 9-11 on Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at the M. John Scanlan Funeral Home. A funeral service will conclude the visitation. Burial will follow at Mount Rest Cemetery, Butler.
