Susan Kay Schrock

July 19, 1954 — January 9, 2024

Susan K. Schrock, 69, of Swink, Colorado passed away January 9, 2024, at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born July 19, 1954, in La Junta, Colorado to Leland & Evelyn (Reynolds) Rhodes.

Susan graduated from Swink High School in 1972. She married the love of her life, Tom Schrock, on December 30, 1972. They celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary this past December. To this union three children were born, Justin, Chad and Kassandra. They made their home in La Junta. Tom worked for ATSF Railroad and Susan was mainly a stay-at-home mom. When her kids were raised, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of having a career in nursing. She absolutely loved being a Registered Nurse. However, what gave her the most joy in her life was her grand angels, Kyle, Sydney, Cody, Brenton, Sari, Keegan, Aislynn, Maverick and McKinley. It was rare to have a conversation with her where they were not the topic of discussion.

Susan is survived by her husband, Tom Schrock; children, Justin (Shaunna) Schrock; Chad (Heather) Schrock; Kassie (Mike) Martin; nine grandchildren as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and her beloved Yorkie, Izzy. Susan is preceded in death by her parents, Leland and Evelyn Rhodes, her brothers, grandparents, and numerous in-laws.
