Susan Mae Whisler



Susan Mae Whisler (nee Mariano), 74, of Blue Anchor, N.J., passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 with loving family by her side.


Born in Camden, N.J., she was a lifelong resident of Blue Anchor, where she met the love of her life, Kenneth Sr. They were married in 1967, built a home, planted roots and raised a wonderful family. Susan was a home cleaning business owner and restaurant manager, but mostly she was a devoted wife, mom, sister, aunt, niece, grandmother and godmother. Her self-depreciating humor made her beloved by all who knew her. Her legacy is one of encouragement and joy for her tight-knit kids and grandkids no matter what the day would bring. She was truly one of a kind. 


Susan is predeceased by her husband, Kenneth D. Whisler Sr. of Blue Anchor; her parents, Fiode Michael and Jennie Mariano of Blue Anchor; her sister, Carol; and brother, Fiode Michael Jr. 


Susan is survived by her sister, Sandra Warner (Mariano) of Essex, Md.; her children, Kenneth Jr. and Jodi Whisler (Puleo) of Folsom, N.J., Kevin and Jill Whisler (Ward) of Blue Anchor and Mark and Kelly Schiendelman (Whisler) of Rosedale; and six amazing grandchildren, Kevin Whisler, Kenneth Whisler, Danielle Whisler, Jacob Schiendelman, Miranda Whisler and Ava Whisler.
