Susan Richter Brooks

Sugar Grove, Va.

Susan Richter Brooks, age 63, passed away Saturday, July 11, 2020 at Bristol Regional Medical Center.

Susan was a loving wife, daughter, sister and friend to all. She loved animals and especially her dogs. Susan, originally from Richmond, worked for the Catholic church more than 20 years. She had a kind heart and the soul of a caregiver. She took care of her mother-in-law in her home for seven years. If Susan wasn’t loving people or animals, she may be enjoying board games or the beach. Susan will be deeply missed by all who knew her and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph B. and Anne Kersey Richter;  and brother, Joseph B. Richter.

Susan is survived by her husband, Rodney Brooks of Sugar Grove, Va.; sisters, Sandra Claytor and husband, Tommy, Sharon Williams; brother, Steven K. Richter, all of Richmond, Va.; several nieces and nephews; and special friend, Jeanette Mullins of Richmond, Va.

Graveside services will be held Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 11 a.m. at Mount Calvary Cemetery, 1400 South Randolph Street, Richmond, Va. 23220, with Father Raner Lucila officiating.

Susan was a co-worker, colleague and friend at the Catholic Diocese of Richmond for many years. We car-pooled for several years and were lunch buddies. I made my first "car phone" call from Susan's car after it was installed at Warren's shop in Richmond. She was a devoted daughter. The dogs were always a big part of her life. To all her dear family and friends, please know of my thoughts and prayers. May choirs of angels lead her to Paradise, and may she rest in peace. Anne Edwards
