Susan Jane Knauss Britt

Corsicana —

Our loving mother Susan Jane Knauss Britt of Arlington, previously Corsicana, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 14, 2013.  The world welcomed this kind and wonderful soul on May 27, 1945 in Charleston, W. Va., daughter to Fred and Lois Knauss.  She filled her life expressing her compassion for others, beginning with her church secretarial position. She was enthralled with learning, earning her Associate Degree from Navarro College at age 48. Susan raised three loving dogs of her own becoming a staunch proponent against animal cruelty.

She is survived by siblings Barbara, Helen and Jim and also several cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as her daughters Tracy and Teri and two grandsons.

The graveside service is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday April 20, 2013 at Hamilton Beeman Cemetery with Father Edward Monk officiating.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to ASPCA in Susan's honor,

Thank you for blessing our lives with your presence.  We love you mom.

An online guestbook is available at by selecting the Susan Jane Britt obituary.
