In Memoriam: Susan True
Susan and her husband Darryl have lived in the Shores for many years. Our condolences go out to Susan’s family and friends.
Susan Marie True (Bostwick), 71, of Ravenna OH passed away peacefully the evening of Tuesday, July 10th, 2018. She was surrounded by her most ardent supporters and surviving family members; her husband, Darryl True; her eldest son, Trent True with wife Shannon True; and youngest son, Daren True and his wife Christina True.
She was a vibrant woman who threw her all into everything she did for those she cared about. She worked for many years at the Berea General Electric plant before leaving the workforce. In years past, you could have run into her chaperoning trips for Daren’s chess club, steel drum band, or cheering from the stands for the marching band he directed. She embraced her daughter-in-laws as her own girls and was always game for a spa day. She was an avid golfer with long time friend Barb Miller and anyone who would go with her, always smirking when the guys at the shop would overestimate her handicap. Her love of the outdoors lead her to The Kent Garden Club, where for many years she was a champion for helping set up Project Green, a program to educate disabled children to learn about and grow their own plants by working with the club and local schools.
Many of her favorite memories were from attending theater shows, spending time with her now departed dogs, Bear and Parker, and boating on the lake with her husband and family friends.
Per her wishes she will be cremated and returned to those places she held most dear. A Celebration Of Life will be hosted by the family on Weds. July 18, from 5-9pm, with a service to begin at 6:30pm at the Ode to Joy Center, 480 Ravenna Rd., Streetsboro, OH 44240. Casual clothes and comfortable shoes are encouraged.
