Susan A. Tibbetts, passed away October 11, 2019. Susan lost her battle with her metastatic breast cancer. She started with district back in 1984 as part-time bus driver while attending Mesa College; graduating with her A.A. before attending San Diego State. Who knew that a part-time position would end up being a life time of transporting special needs students with compassion and a caring heart. Susan retired in 2018 with PERS after a prolong battle of health problems. When you work for District, the district becomes your family and after 34 years her fellow drivers were her family. She leaves behind her son Kenny, brother Stan, sister Charice, the Rowlands' family and her friends. Susan requested to be cremated and have her ashes scatter at sea. May she always be young and beautiful. A celebration of life is planned for December 14, 2019. For additional information please contact Charice Hendricks at
