Sue Ellen Fahrenbacher
Sue Ellen Fahrenbacher journeyed to eternal joy with her Savior on April 20, 2017 at the age of 74. Sue Ellen was born on July 17, 1943 in Springfield IL. In her elementary years she moved with her parents Frank Joseph Fahrenbacher and Lois Evelyn Philbrook Fahrenbacher and her three siblings to Chalmette, LA where she lived until adulthood. She has lived in TX, NM, and CA and moved back to the New Orleans area in the late 1990’s, where she faithfully cared for her parents until their passing. After her conversion at the age of 44, her greatest joy was to share her love for Jesus and the Bible to all she encountered, regularly attending and leading bible studies, and ministering to women in many different capacities. Her church home was Faithful Word Assembly in Kenner. She is survived by her exhusband Earl Whittemore, her children Wendy Whittemore Zaeringer and husband Steve Zaeringer, and John Whittemore and wife Ashley, and her siblings Ronald and Dorothy Fahrenbacher, Terry Olson, and Rick and Linda Fahrenbacher. She also has five loving grandchildren: Abigail, Joseph, Rachel and Peter Zaeringer, and Grayson Earl Whittemore. All of these and her large extended family will miss her dearly. She has touched the lives of a large number of friends and family and will always be remembered for her deep and abiding faith in Jesus and the love of Christ that she lavished on all who encountered her. Her memorial service was held on Saturday, April 29 at Lakeview Christian Center, 5885 Fleur de Lis Drive, New Orleans. In lieu of flowers, her request was that offerings would be given to her home church of Faithful Word Assembly.
