Catalina Stoduto Sussman October 18, 1921 - May 1, 2015 Catalina Stoduto Sussman of Sugar Land, Texas, passed away peacefully at the age of 93, in the comfort of her home and arms of her family on the morning of May 1st, 2015.Born to Italian immigrants, on October 18th, 1921 in Asuncion Paraguay, she was the youngest daughter of seven children. In 1944, on scholarship, she followed her love of adventure and spirit of wanderlust to Rochester, New York, where she earned a degree from Nazareth College. She returned to Paraguay to care for her ailing father, all the while never forgetting her love for the United States and planning her return. Her dream became a reality when she returned in 1949 to attend Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. Again on scholarship, she earned her Master's Degree in Social Work and met the love of her life, her late husband Edgar Bismark Sussman of Toledo, Ohio. One of the first women to serve as a juvenile probation officer for the State of Texas, within a few years she joined of the Texas Youth Commission as a juvenile parole officer. In the latter part of her career, she founded on behalf of the Commission, the first Volunteer Coordinator Program dedicated to engaging Texas communities and mentors with juveniles on the road to rehabilitation and positive life changes. She retired from TYC in 1984.While her professional accolades were impressive, they pale in comparison to the love and sacrifices she made for her family. She is survived by her daughter, Joan Marie Lynch; granddaughter, Cathleen Lynch-Linkenauger and her husband Jeff; and great grand-daughter, Catherine Lucille Linkenauger.Her enormous and contagious personality, wealth of selflessness and friendly smile will be sorely missed by all of the lives she touched. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday, May 7th at 9:30 a.m., at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart with a reception to follow
