Obituary of Susan McClure

Susan Elaine McClure, age 72, a resident of Ft. Scott, Kansas, went home to her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.  Susan was born to Raymond Roy Bassett and Virginia Bassett on April 21, 1951.  As a young girl, Susan enjoyed playing softball where she played first base.  She was a good seamstress and loved to sew.  As much as she loved to sew, she hated to dust and was often teased about it by her sister.  Susan graduated high school in 1969.  She married Kenneth Ray McClure on June 26, 1970.  To this union, three children were born, Bryan, Aimee and Amber.  One of Susan’s joys was attending as many of her grandchildren’s school activities as possible.  She could be seen sitting in the stands at football, basketball and even wrestling events.  Susan was also an avid collector of the Pillsbury Dough Boy.  Susan loved getting out and having an occasional girl’s day with her sister.  The day usually included a manicure and pedicure, visiting flea markets, and enjoying a piece of pie.  Everyone who knew her knew how much she loved God.  Susan was known for her card ministry and collecting magazines to give to the shut-ins.  Susan was looking forward to attending her granddaughter’s wedding in August and her other two granddaughters’ graduations in May.

Survivors include a son, Bryan McClure of the home; two daughters, Aimee McClure of Ft. Scott and Amber Goodbody and husband, Ryan, also of Ft. Scott; one sister, Nancy Orton and husband, Mike, of Joplin, Missouri; daughter-in-law, Debbie McClure of Ft. Scott and numerous nieces and nephews.  Also surviving are six grandchildren, Macayla, Emma and fiancé, Jeremiah, Brittany, Skyler, KW and Tristen.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, two brothers and a grandchild.
