CANFIELD, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – To know Sue was to know her giving nature and kindness. She spent her entire life in service to her family, church, friends and clients.

Following Pat’s graduation, they were married in Tiffin and moved to Youngstown, Ohio’s Mill Creek Park area. Next came a move to Austintown, Ohio before finally settling in Canfield, Ohio.
