Obituary

Susan Ann Hosto Helka of Leander Texas passed away on October 5th at the young age of 66.

Susan was born in Newport Arkansas to Doris and Ralph Hosto, on July 15th 1951. Susan was the oldest of 3 daughters.

Susan left Arkansas after graduating high school and married Ernest Ewald Jr. of Lockhart Texas. They had 3 children and that began an amazing journey of love. Susan loved and spoiled Savannah Stephens, her granddaughter, for 19 years before being blessed with 3 grandsons and one great granddaughter. These babies became her life and was truly what she lived for. She also loved to help people in need. She literally woke up thinking of people she had met that were faced with unfortunate circumstances and found a way to help. This was her passion and God worked through her in helping the less fortunate. Susan was a collector of rocks, crystals, Indian artifacts and many other unique items. The collections were enjoyed by many in our family.

Susan is survived by two kids, Valerie Stephens and Timothy Ewald; one granddaughter Savannah Stephens; four grandsons Tyler Sprinkle, Hayden Ewald, Casen Ewald, Gavin Cigich; one great granddaughter, Rylinn Henry; two sisters, Debra House and Laura Lee Scoggins and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Doris Hosto; and a son, Trey Ewald.
