Susan Morey Cause of Death – Passed Away: 62-year-old Susan Morey of Edmond, Oklahoma passed away on Friday, December 10th, 2021, from progressive results of ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Susan’s death has left the Stearns family devastated and shocked.
It is with our deepest condolences as we hear of the passing of Susan Morey. We were honored by her strength and determination as she rode her beloved JRH Remember Me to capture the 2021 Jubilee Western Pleasure Championship. We will always remember.
Ms Susan Morey Stearns was born in Edmond, Oklahoma on August 28, 1959, to Bill and Suzanne (Wittick) Stearns. In 1977, she graduated from Edmond Memorial High School, where she won her first Arabian National title in Saddle Seat Equitation under the tutelage of Harold Adams. She went on to become a professional Arabian horse trainer after graduating from high school, establishing Oaktree Farms in Edmond.
So many broken hearts today with the loss of Susan Morey. Mine feels like it will never mend completely. Trying to imagine how Stan feels. Susan was an amazing person…my hero, way before the diagnosis. But that drive, that competitive spirit, that passion for horses…it’s what kept her going throughout her fight for her life. When she rode and won in October, barely able to stand, we all saw a piece of her incredible heart. RIP Susan. I will never, ever forget you.
In 1985, Susan married R. Stanton (Stan) Morey. Stan and Susan founded Hallmark Farms in order to train and show Arabian horses. She won the Ladies Western Pleasure World Championship in October 2021 and received the APHA Hero Award in 2020.
