Susan K. Reel “Susie”, 52, of Noblesville, passed quietly with her mother and her husband by her side Monday, December 28th, 2020 at IU Health Methodist in Indianapolis. Susie was born February 7th, 1968 in Knox, Indiana to Robert and Marian (Loukota) Price. Susie graduated from Knox High School in 1986 and went on to study at IUPUI in Indianapolis. She also attended Marion College to obtain her Paralegal degree.
While studying for her degree, Susie interned at the Indiana Statehouse for the governor. Upon graduation, she began her career as a Paralegal. She continued in the legal field until 2016, when she decided to pursue something totally different. In June of 2016 she joined the team at Pyatt Builders where she became an integral part of their staff. Susie excelled at whatever she decided to do.
In 1996, she met her husband, Phillip Reel, Jr. and they were married June 12, 1999. They built a loving life together for almost 22 years and were blessed with 2 daughters, Katherine Marie and Madeline Grace. Susie loved to spend time with her family. She always made every occasion a major event. One nephew was quoted in saying, “I love the parties that Aunt Susie throws, because the food is always awesome!” She made sure to make everyone feel special, especially on their birthday.
Susie’s passion was her daughters. She could be heard at every game cheering from the sidelines at the softball diamond, the rugby pitch, or the Lacrosse fields. She loved watching her girls excel, and being their biggest fan. She was loving and caring to the girls, and made sure they were taught the values they needed in life. When she wasn’t doing that, she was a devoted daughter and loving wife, always making sure that her mother and husband were cared for. She made sure that her mom had all the help she needed with yard work or shopping at Christmas. She never thought of herself because everybody else always came first.
Her favorite times were the yearly family vacations to Florida. Susie loved the sun, the beach, the ocean, and especially the Sea Turtles. She traveled yearly for 16 years, never missing a chance to spend time in the sun with those she loved the most.
Susie will be remembered for her loving nature, her kind heart, and loving soul.
Susie leaves behind her husband of 21 years, Phil; 2 daughters, Katie and Maddie; her mother, Marian; and her brothers, Jim (Gina) Price and John (Amy) Price; as well as her nieces and nephews and cousins.
She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Price; and her grandparents, John and Irene Loukota. In addition, she is preceded by her adopted family, Uncle Bob and Aunt Margie Wetzel; and Katie and Maddie’s adopted grandpa, Leo “Poppie” Commiskey.
