Obituary for Susan K Thielen

Susan Kaye Thielen, a resident of Royal Oak, found her way to Heaven on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. She was 59 years old.

Susan loved flowers and to spend time in her garden. The sunshine loved her, just as much as she loved it. She had the epitome of a contagious smile, and every time she laughed, the people around her had no choice but to laugh right along with her. Her energy was capable of lighting any room she set foot in. A talented singer, Susan was a well-seasoned karaoke veteran and enjoyed nights out singing with friends and family. She put her children first, always before herself, and let everyone she talked to know just how much she loved them. She was a lover of all animals (except for rats, of course), and treated her cats as if they too were her children. Susan instantly made every person she met feel as though they were family. She was a woman of strong faith and an absolute friend of God, and no matter what situation she found herself in, she always found a way to recognize the good, and always remind us all of the beauty of life itself.

She is survived by her two loving children, Jacob and Kelly, her sister Rebecca (husband Glen), her brother Robert, ex-husband and father of her children, Jeffrey, her beloved cats, Catty and Goose, and her wonderful nieces and nephews, Rachel, Benjamin, Katy, Bobby, James, and Elizabeth. She is preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Lucille MacNabb.

A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 9th, at the Main Masouleum, White Chapel Cemetery, Troy.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Susan’s honor to the Michigan Humane Society ( and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (
