Susan (Jane) Swentzel Lytle, daughter of C. Blair and Ruth Anne Swentzel of West Union, West Virginia was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia on January 28, 1944.  She went to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ on September 2, 2021 from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.

Susan was the consummate wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, She was an excellent cook, avid quilter, energetic traveler, and relentless spiritual witness. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education from Salem College and earned a master’s degree in special education from West Virginia University.  She was an unapologetic Mountaineer fan and a dedicated teacher in the public school systems and in churches wherever her family attended.  She led and mentored in many godly women Bible studies in various churches and communities.  

Susan loved to travel throughout the U.S. and to many countries of the world.  A special memory for her was a trip to Israel.  She celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary with her entire family as they explored Alaska.  She was blessed to live in eight different states throughout her life.  She was a talented pianist and loved singing in church choirs wherever they attended.  Many of her fondest memories were singing with her family in the various church choirs.

Susan battled the ravages of cancer on three separate occasions with a never ending desire to always accept God’s will for her life.  She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Foster M. Lytle II, her two sons Foster M. Lytle III, his wife Jayne, their daughters Shelby J. and Margaret R. Lytle and Christopher B. Lytle, his wife Kathryn and their sons S. Jesse and Joshua C Lytle  She is also survived by one great grandchild, Sophia G. Lytle daughter of S .Jesse and Gloria Lytle.

Susan, if here, would express her gratitude to all who prayed for her in the past be it for health issues or simply to provide encouragement for her in those daily situations which we all face.  Finally, she would seek continued prayer support for her family as they adjust to her departure from this world and as they seek the perfect life which she now enjoys.

There will be an 11:00 AM Memorial service on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at The First Baptist Church of Aurantia located at 3953 Fairfax Dr, Mims, FL 32754. The service will be a celebration of Susan’s life and is intended to serve as a source of encouragement to all of us who remain on earth.
