Susan Linn Pickinpaugh, 70, of Lincoln, passed away Wednesday, December 8, 2021. She was born on August 1, 1951 in Lincoln, NE to Verna Strawser (Broers) & Edgar Stinson.

She was preceded in death by her late husband Edward Pickinpaugh, along with her mother Verna, Brothers Daniel, Michael and Butch Stinson.

Sue was raised by her mother along with her 7 siblings. She cherished her family and instilled her values in each of her children. Her love for her children was seen by many in the closeness of their relationships. She selflessly and relentlessly cared and provided for each of them as small children and as adults. Her sacrifice and dedication to her family did not go unnoticed. She made sure that her children were taught the skills needed to raise their own families, through her cooking, baking, birthday’s, holiday togetherness and many of her other hobbies. She loved each of her children, however, her greatest joy was every one of her grandchildren. They each held a very special place in her heart and were spoiled by her equally. Her love for her fur babies was prevalent in her life as her little Tico dog and mean kitty Franklin lie by her side when she passed.

Her hobbies included camping, fishing, shopping (for purses), crafting and gardening and a good ol Margarita! The hugs and kisses; the good mornings and good nights, the kissy emoji’s and the “I Love You’s” will be fiercely missed forever and always.
