Susan Linda Hanzook, age 63, of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, passed away on Monday June 7, 2021, at home with family by her side. She was the wife of Joseph (Rocky) J. Hanzook Jr., with whom she shared 35 years of marriage. Born in Baltimore City, MD, Susan was the daughter of the late John E. Wilhide and the late Elizabeth Justice Wilhide.
Susan worked for Nationwide Insurance Company in the Annapolis, MD claims call center into the early 1980’s. This is where she and Rocky met and their story began. Most recently, Susan worked part-time for Kennett High School in food services, and as a teacher’s assistant at the Kennett Square YMCA After Care and Montessori Programs.
Susan enjoyed taking walks and had quite the green thumb. She cherished time with family and friends at the beach in Chincoteague, VA, and visits with her granddaughter, whom she dearly loved. Susan was a fan of listening to a good band while eating steamed crabs and was also a dog lover, with an affinity for the boxer breed.
In addition to her husband Rocky, Susan is survived by son Craig A. Moreland; daughter Amy Moreland Krause and her husband Michael L. Krause, of Johnstown, PA; two brothers, John C. Wilhide of Denton, MD, and Raymond J. Wilhide and his wife Nancy Haushalter Wilhide, of Annapolis, MD; and one granddaughter, Addison M. Krause. Susan was predeceased by two sons, Ryan J. Hanzook and David A. Moreland.
