In Loving Memory

Susan Sedette (Watson) Morawski

June 22, 1946 – May 30, 2021

Susan Sedette (Watson) Morawski passed away peacefully with her loving husband, her daughters, and her sister by her side on Sunday, May 30, 2021.  Susan was born, to the great delight of her big sister on June 22, 1946, in Fort Worth, TX to Sedette and Oliver Watson.  She graduated magna cum laude from Arlington Heights High School in 1964 and entered the University of Texas at Arlington, where she was a charter member of the University's Tri Delta Sorority and where she met her future husband, John.  She graduated in 1968 magna cum laude with a degree in math and later earned a master's in mathematics and computer science at Texas Women's University.  She indeed was a life-time learner.

Susan began her teaching career at Carter Jr. High in Arlington.  She then taught high school math in Aledo, TX and later at Friendswood High School in Friendswood, TX.  Most recently Susan was an Associate Professor of Mathematics at College of the Mainland in Texas City, TX.  She truly enjoyed sharing her knowledge of math with others and helping students of all ages reach their fullest potential.  In addition to her teaching career, Susan was a real estate broker for and owner of Watson & Co.; established by her parents, in Fort Worth.  At IBM in Southlake, TX, Susan worked on enterprise planning software and later in Clear Lake, TX, in programming for the International Space Station.

An avid sailor, an interest she shared with her husband John, Susan was life member of the U.S. Sail and Power Squadron with the rank of Lt. Commander, and she achieved the highest grade of Senior Navigator.  In addition, she was a member of the Brazos Port Yacht Club. 

Susan was a longtime member of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Friendswood, TX

Playing with her grandchildren, whether swinging from ropes, treasuring hunting, or swimming in the pool was one of Susan's greatest joys.  She was a friend to many including friendships that began in junior high school and close friendships with fellow sailors and was a friend to anyone who needed her.  Her sister described her as "the best little sister ever!".

Susan and John would have celebrated their 53rd anniversary on June 8.  He loved her well "in sickness and in health".

A friend of her sisters who said she had always wanted a sister like Susan recently said of her "Susan is certainly one courageous woman who loves the Lord and her family so very much."  Her family certainly agrees with this statement. 

Susan is survived by her husband John Morawski; daughter Shaun Powell and husband Todd, and their children Hunter, Carson and Branson of Fort Worth; daughter Erin Stotler and husband Blake and their daughter's Blakely and Ainsley of Driftwood, TX; her sister Virginia (Ginger) Pickett and her husband David, and nieces and nephews.

Susan's parents, Sedette an Oliver L. Watson Jr, preceded her in death.

    God Bless and keep Susan forever. Many happy memories sailing together. My late wife and I enjoyed Susan's infectious smile and candid expressions. The wheel of life brings all of us into this experience eventually. But only a few of us are privileged to have cross paths and shared memories with some one as wonderful and fun as Susan. I know she will be missed by all who ever met and knew her. The kind of love she spread among family and friends is expressed best in how much we miss her. Susan's immortality is her legacy of impressions she made on all of us. The most ideal character and spirit one could ever hope to meet again on the other side.

    I met Susan in college when I pledged Tri Delta Sorority. She was a kind and caring person whom I looked up to in our sorority. It was a blessing, when years later, her daughter, Erin, and my daughter, Whitney, became friends. It was such a joy renewing our ties and expanding our friendship. Susan was a truly special lady. She was happy, positive, and always smiling. She will be missed. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with John, Shaun, Erin and their families.

    Susan will forever leave her mark on many people. I had the pleasure of calling her family and celebrated many holidays and special events with her.
    She loved her family fiercely and made it a priority to be in attendance for her grandchildren's events.
    Susan was a very smart woman who used her skills to advance others' knowledge .
    Rest now, Susan, you fought a hard fight but now are with our Heavenly Father.

    I just found out about Mrs. Morawski today and it took my breath away. I met her as my teacher at the beginning of my college career at COM and I have to say that if it was not for her kind words I would not have continued on. She guided me on some of my toughest days, even when I was not in her class. I would leave notes on her white board if she wasnt in just to let her know that I am thankful for her. She left a mark on me that I will forever be grateful for and I am so thankful that I had someone as kind as her, especially during some of my hardest days, You will be missed….
