March 28, 1929 – Oct. 16, 2018
Susie Fay (Duncan) Groshong, 89, of Sweet Home died peacefully in her sleep on Oct. 16, 2018.
She was born March 28, 1929 in Opheim, Mont., to Paul M. and Ethel Elizabeth (Roberts) Duncan. She lived most of her life in Sweet Home and graduated from Sweet Home Union High School.
Mrs. Groshong was a wonderful homemaker, loving mother, and devoted grandmother. She was always there for anyone in need, and no one ever left her home hungry, or without a smile on their face.
She was a rock hound and loved collecting all types of rocks. She loved all Native American art, especially jewelry, along with gardening and baking. She also loved guns, and anyone who knew her will fondly recall the name "Deadeye Susie." She especially loved the Oregon Coast, as the ocean and fresh crab were two of her favorite things.
She had an amazing spirit that embraced all who knew her, and her legacy and love will live on in each and every member of her family.
Mrs. Groshong is survived by her children, Allan Godell, Marion Williams, Roger Godell, Marilyn Godell, Julie (Wilson) Evans and Arlyn Groshong; 17 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and siblings Patrick, Duncan, Elsie Anderson, Rose Fox and Peggy Reller.
She was preceded in death by her beloved son, Gregory Godell, in 2004; husband Dale Godell in 1994; husband Royal Groshong in 2015; siblings Betty Morris, Pauline Shuker, Edna Grace Williams and Katie Wilson; and grandson Travis Godell in 1969.

A graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at Gilliland Cemetery. A gathering and refreshments will immediately follow the service at 4215 Long St. in Sweet Home.
