She was born on September 20, 1948 at King Daughters Hospital in Columbia, Tennessee, with her twin sister, Barbara Ann Whitwell to Rose Anna Schuster and Leonard Lawrence (Arthur) Gates. After the death of their mother, the sisters and older brother were adopted and raised by John I. and Virginia M. Vernon. Susan was very active in Church, Lodge and tribal activities during her time with us. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and was attending the Licking, Missouri congregation. She was a full time mother and wife and is survived by her husband of 53 years Vernon W. Strickland, and her four children, twelve grandchildren and two g-grandchildren.
