|Let the memory of Susie be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Susie Stockard, 75, born on January 12, 1940 and passed away on December 19, 2015 with her husband and sister by her side. Susie was born in Belmont Illinois to Harry and Eva Brown. She moved around a lot as a child, and it wasn't until she moved to Ohio that she found home.
Susie had many interests. She loved collecting dolls and teddy bears. She also wrote children stories about her favorite bear Ophelia called "My Forever Friends". She also loved to collect quilts and vintage clothes. She loved being outside working in her garden.
There are so many lives that were touched by Susie. Anyone that met her loved her. She had such a loving and fun spirit. She loved her friends, family and Jesus deeply. She was married to her best friend for 41 years. They were soul mates.
A celebration of life service will be held in the spring.
Susie will be greatly missed by all. Heaven received a beautiful angel.
"I am saddened to learn that Susie went to heaven...she was my babysitter & second mother as a kid...she was a WONDERFUL lady & mother to us neighborhood kids...you will be SADLY missed...I'll be praying for the family & David."
"My sister Connie and I met Susie 40 years ago when we went to Findlay we didn't know what to expect but it became a pleasure meeting her that day. The one thing I think of immediately was her contagious laugh and smile this is a memory I'll remember of Susie and the really cool lady she was."
"I could write a book on my sister and the laughs and tears and talks around the round table. I don't know what it was with our families but the kitchen table was always the meeting place. I am so glad her and David decided to make their home in Carrollton. I was able to get to know my sister again and we were the best of friends. I will miss the laughter that we could do somehow in every conversation. When she was getting really sick I didn't have as many of those laughing moments but after her last hospital stay we got them back. I think she knew how much I loved her. I know how much she loved me. I will miss her everyday. She is with the ones that went before her and I know they are looking down on us and will always be with us. David you were the best husband,care taker. You never complained and I know and saw how tough it was."
"God blessed me with the most loving, caring, amazing best friend anyone could ever ask for and it was my honor to call her my best friend for over 40 years. She was one of God's precious souls that he put here on Earth. Anyone who met her would tell you the same thing. From the first time that I started to babysit for her on Cherry St., the train store on Main St, the crafts on the kitchen table, all the painting projects, the antique store in Wapa, all the visits with her and David after they left Findlay, she always made it feel like home for you! I don't think that I could ever pick out just one favorite memory about Susie for they are all special. Susie you will always be in my heart until mine stops beating..Love you!"
"Susie lived 2 doors down from me in Findlay. We quickly became friends and remained throughout the years. We could talk for hours over coffee and never run out of things to say. We laugh a lot and I miss that with her. We could find someone funny in anything to laugh about. Will so miss that squeakie little voice and the many phone calls that got me in so much trouble!! So sorry David and family for your loss!"
"Our family is so scattered so I did not know Susie well but I do rememer her and David coming to see my Mom Enid Brown (her aunt)
and chatting about her bears and laughing a lot that visit meant a lot to my Mom and us. Will miss her!!!"
"My Grandmother was someone I would really love to model my life after. Although I miss her greatly the memories I have of her are all good ones. I didn't get to much time with her...not enough or at least it feels that way now. I was blessed enough to be able to take a trip to visit her back when I was 18. Back then I was very timid about speaking my opinions, especially to family due to the fact that I didn't want to upset anyone over my personal views. The first thing I remember about that trip was She was standing at the doors tears in her eyes she told me "I'm so happy to you! I thought I would never see you again!" She continued to express how grateful she was to be able to see me again after a bad accident I had a few years prior. I hadn't seen her in over 8 years so we just sat down and talked for several hours. About life, love, faith and everything else I could have dreamed having a conversation with her about. She was truly a very loving caring person. She taught me that having faith is not about holding hate in your heart for others but accepting and loving one another for who they are. My dad is one of my favorite people in the whole world and he reminds me a lot of his mom. To have someone so understanding and loving in your life is such a blessing. I love you Grandma I know you are up there with My grandpa Wayne I know how close of friends you two were I hope you are both catching up sharing some laughs. You will always be in a very special place in my heart. Rest in peace <3 - Love Desi"
"I especially remember spending a great time with David and Susie in Florida with Josh and Desirae. My heart aches for all of you!"
""Your Mother was so fun to be with. I moved to Colorado and she was not only my sister-in-law but also my friend. She was incredible warm and friendly. I remember celebrating my youngest son's birthday we celebrated at her and David's house in Broomfield. We would sit on the porch and smell the strawberries that we planted in the front yard. I will miss you Susie."
"My mom was amazing in so many ways. She was one of my most favorite people in this world. She was my best friend. She was always there for me and I feel so blessed to have her as my mom. I love her so much and miss her. I will miss her everyday. I thank God for the extra time I got to spend with her last week. I will hold on and cherish that time forever. I love you Mommy!"
