March 17, 1958 - August 19, 2019
Susan Lynn Rutledge Felts, 61, of Mesquite, Texas, passed away August 19, 2019. She was born March 17, 1958 in Newton, Iowa, daughter to Robert Gene and Donna Jo Rutledge. Sue, as she was known, graduated from North Mesquite High School and attended Texas Woman’s University. She worked for the family business, McClelland Gun Shop, for 35 years. For the past few years, she enjoyed retirement with husband Mike and an energetic French bulldog named Max. Raising English and French bulldogs was a source of great joy during her life. Sue also loved curling up with a good romance novel, whiling away weekends watching movies, and enjoyed all things crafting. A quiet, beautiful woman, Sue was blessed with a great sense of humor and a fierce love for her family.
A beloved wife, mother, daughter, grandmother and aunt, she is survived by her devoted husband of 41 years, Michael Felts, son Christopher Felts and daughter-in-law Teresa, grandchildren Carmen Prasauskas, Alix Franco, Slade and Lorna Felts, mother Donna Rutledge, brother Ronald Rutledge and wife Terry, nieces Jayme Rutledge Howell and Kylee Rutledge, aunt Shirley McFarland, aunt Rose Hoyt and husband Darwin, uncle Jerry Livingston and wife Bonnie, father-in-law Robert Felts and wife Paula, brother-in-law Lee Felts and wife Tammy, sister-in-law Sarah Felts York and husband Rick, nephews Robert and Cody Felts, nieces Cailee Felts and Aryssa York and many other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Rutledge, grandparents Leon and Arlene Livingston, Ted Rutledge and Ruby Spooner, aunt Coleen Scudder, uncle Gene Livingston, and mother-in-law Kay Stephens.
A private memorial will be held by the family.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
– Irish blessing
