Obituary for Susan Q Sickler

Susan Q Sickler, 72, of Wernersville, passed away at home on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Sue was the loving and devoted wife of Joseph H. Sickler. They were married December 27, 1969 and shared 50 wonderful years together.

Born in West Reading, she was the daughter of the late Gerald Rapp, Jr. and the late Helen (Goodall) Rapp.

In addition to her husband, Sue is survived by her beloved children, Christine M. Sickler, Kenner, Louisiana and Andrew J. Sickler, husband of Elizabeth A. Sickler, Middletown, Pennsylvania. Also surviving are Sue’s brother Jon Rapp and her half-brother Jeremy Rapp.

Sue was a 1965 graduate of West Reading High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree in 1969 and her master’s degree in 1972, specializing in Elementary Education and Special Education from Millersville University. She worked for the Berks County Intermediate Unit and then continued substitute teaching, homeschooling and tutoring children for over 25 years.

She possessed a strong faith as a lifelong Christian and was a member of Trinity Lutheran in Wernersville. Sue volunteered with her church and was active in the Bible Study Group. She was also a member of the Wernersville Women’s Club and she attended monthly luncheons with her fellow West Reading alumni.

In addition to spending time with her family, Sue spent many happy days at one of her favorite places, Longwood Gardens. She also loved traveling with her family, in particular visiting her daughter in Louisiana and traveling to National Parks around the country, including a family vacation to Yellowstone this past fall.

Interment will be private, with a celebration of life to be held at a later date to be determined.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at

Remembering Susan. Her dedication to what was right was always on target. She gave her time to democratic action more freely than anyone I ever knew. Still use a mug she gave as a thoughtfully presented gift. Planting a Pinus strobis in her memory, and for her wonderful family.

My thoughts to all who knew and loved Susan. I knew Sue from the BCIU and she substitute taught in my classroom at CWASD. She will be remembered with a smile.

Joe, Chrisie, Andy & Beth,

My condolences to each of you as Susan will be missed by so many for her far-reaching good deeds. Sue stood out in her practicality & ability to overcome difficulties without burdening others or complaining. I doubt I’ve known another who was so capable yet took so little credit for her accomplishments. She seemed happy observing on the sidelines yet always present if her advice was sought.

A good person and friend has passed. I’ll surely miss her.
