Susan Diane (Clifford) Seeger

Omak, WA

Susan Diane Seeger, 57, of Omak, WA, passed away peacefully on November 30, 2012, at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, in the presence of her loving family. Sue was born April 6, 1955, in Richland, WA to Elvin W. “Bill” and Joan Marlene Clifford. She was the second of seven siblings. A graduate of Richland High School in Richland, WA, Sue pursued her R.N. nursing degree at Columbia Basin Community College in Pasco. Upon obtaining her degree, she moved to the Okanogan Valley in 1976. She had two boys, Joshua and Matthew Peterson, by the winter of 1981. She was a great supporter of her boys and Okanogan athletics in general. In 1976, Sue joined Mid Valley Hospital and began her long career in nursing, which continued up to her passing. Many in the community may recall loved ones who Sue for cared in the ER or ICU. Sue was devoted to her patients for over 36 years. Despite numerous medical issues of her own throughout the years, including a kidney/pancreas transplant in 2000, Sue’s first concern was always returning to her caring service for others in the community. Sue’s colleagues thought of her as invaluable member of the Nurses’ Union negotiations and she was unquestionably respected by her peers, nurses and doctors alike. Sue’s faith was an integral part of her life. Attending a youth summer church camp at age 11, she invited Jesus into her heart. Sue was an active member of the Okanogan Presbyterian Church, where she taught Sunday school class, was a member of the choir, and served as Elder. In 2007, Sue married Dr. David Seeger of Omak. They enjoyed traveling together, specifically attending her father’s naval reunions annually throughout the country. They also took in musicals, movies, plays and, of course, shared an avid love of sports. This summer Sue was diagnosed with oral cancer and underwent successful surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center in August. Shortly thereafter, she was able to return to work. Further treatment complications led to a cardiac arrest. Sue’s strength, patience, selflessness, and unconditional encouragement will be missed by many, though we know she is now in the comfort and care of her Lord and Savior.

Sue was preceded in death by her mother, Joan; and her sister, Cynthia of Richland. She is survived by her husband, David Seeger of Omak; her father, Bill Clifford of Richland; her two sons, Josh Peterson (Angela Pifer) of Kirkland and Matt Peterson of Seattle; two step-sons, Craig Seeger (Kathryn Botsford) of Longmont, CO and Eric Seeger (Serene) of Gilbert, AZ; four brothers, Billy (Christie), Danny, Bobby (Trish), and Johnny, and sister, Connie Clifford, all of Richland; numerous nieces and nephews, including Kimberly, Michael, Courtney, and Kevin, all of Richland; and granddaughter, Kaileigh Peterson of Kirkland.

Services for Sue will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, December 8, 2012, at the Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church, located at Riverside Drive and Locust in Omak, followed by a Graveside Service at the Okanogan Valley Memorial Gardens. A reception in her honor will be offered at Okanogan Presbyterian Church, 429 W. Oak St. (behind the Courthouse), following the Services. Reverend Chris Warren will be presiding. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to the American Cancer Society. Sue would also encourage all to consider being an Organ Donor by checking that space on your driver license renewal. Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel is in charge of arrangements.
