Susan was born on January 17, 1921 in Cleveland, Ohio and passed away on December 18, 2019. Growing up in the Cleveland area, she lived most of her life in Euclid, and loved attending St. William’s Catholic Church. Sue enjoyed taking care of children, and proudly worked for a daycare where she could help the children learn and play. She relished life and liked to be in the company of others while playing bingo and cooking, as well as spending time alone knitting and bird watching. However, it was her family and grandchildren that gave her the most enjoyment in life. Sue was strong-willed, independent, but most of all a happy soul and for that she will be dearly missed.
Contributions may be made in memory of Sue to Continuum Care Hospice, 12380 Plaza Dr. Ste. 102, Parma, OH 44130, or to the Alzheimer’s Association.
