Susan (Fulk) Agans was born in Creston, IA on September 23, 1942 to Patricia and Robert Gamet. She lived there until moving to Lenox, IA in 1958. Susan married Ronald Fulk in 1964. To this union, a son, Dallas, was born. After Ron’s passing in 1999, Susan married William Agans in 2003.
Susan was a dedicated elementary school teacher for several years in the Lenox Community District. Her passion for teaching and commitment to the smallest of details raised the bar for her students. She wanted them to succeed with the potential she knew was inside them, and she was right beside them every step of the way.
She continued serving the community by volunteering on the EMT ambulance service as a front line worker and teaching EMT classes to new volunteer recruits.
Susan was a devoted wife, mother, friend, and confidant and will be missed by those left to cherish her memory. Countless memories filled with lots of love, laughter, and happiness.
She was preceded in death by Patricia & Marion McMath, Bob & Virginia Gamet, and Ronald Fulk.
Susan is survived by her husband, William ‘Willie’ Agans; son Dallas; sister Deb (Tom) Bender, brother Mark (Lori) Hoffman; extended family Deanna (Gary) Grider, Deb (Rick) Wilcox, Steve (Moe) Agans; and several wonderful nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Accompaniment: A special thank you to those who cared for her toward the end of her life. To the ladies (i.e. angels) of the Creston Hospice house who brought many wonderful and comforting days to her and our family with smiles, laughs, and tears. The dignity, grace, patience, and professionalism they showed daily – we cannot express enough our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation.
Susan will be missed by her entire family and many friends..
The memories they shared throughout the years
will remain in our hearts forever.
May she be at peace in God’s loving care.
