Susan I. Bristol-Holley
If love could have saved you,
You would have lived forever.
Susan I. Bristol-Holley, 50, passed from this tangible earth on April 1, 2012, following a car accident. She was born in Albuquerque, N.M., in 1961 to a proud pioneer family of eight generations.
She graduated from Big Spring High School in 1979. She attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, as well as Brookhaven Community College in Richardson, Texas, and The University of North Texas in Denton.
Susan was preceded in death by her mother, Sally, and father, Harlan, formerly of Big Spring, Texas. She is survived by her husband Raymond Breault of Washington, two daughters, Dena and Jessica of Texas, her half sister, Connie of Alaska, her brother, Alan of Texas and her aunt, Barbara Ruth of Washington. In addition, she is survived by her beloved and constant companion, her precious Maltese, â€śMunchkin Holley.â€ť
Susan worked in the Dallas area for years in the retail and computer industry and later in the banking industry. Susan enjoyed so many creative things in her life, including decorating, designing, cooking, glass fusion, sewing, and custom jewelry. She also was the long time care taker of her father, whom she adored, which was her latest commitment and gift to this world.
She leaves behind many dear and devoted friends who loved her and her loving spirit effortlessly, as well as her presence. Her selfless kindness, friendship and generosity will be greatly missed by all.
There will be a private memorial service for close friends and family which is being planned to celebrate her ever altruistic, generous, talented, loving and brief life. Services are being arranged privately.
At her request, in lieu of flowers, please send donations or memorials to any brain cancer treatment center or to any suicide prevention association of your choice. Her next of kin may be contacted through Charles W. Smith & Sons, 2925 Fifth St., Sachse, Texas 75048.
