Suzanne Tulbure Cowen, 73, of Salem, died at 11:20 p.m. on Sunday, March 31, 2019, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in downtown Youngstown, Ohio, from complications due to a recent stroke.
“Suzy” was born on July 1, 1945, in Youngstown, Ohio, the daughter of the late Andrew (Andy) Oliver Tulbure and Mary Riddle Williams.
As a young woman, Suzy was elected the Honored Queen of Job’s Daughters, graduated in 1963 from David Anderson High School and attended Ohio University.
She loved dancing, reading and spending time with her family; particularly holidays, road trips to North Carolina and visits from her sisters, children and grandchildren. She also adored her dogs, who provided unending and unconditional companionship over the years.
Suzy was the one of the kindest souls you’ve ever met and rarely had a negative thing to say about anyone. She was a wonderful mother who taught her children to persevere, dream big and laugh at themselves. Her laughter and warmth will be missed by all who love her and were lucky enough to have her in their lives.
She is survived by her children, Mila (Michael) Cainey of Charlotte, North Carolina and Jeff (Crystal) Cowen of The Plains, Ohio; her sisters, Sandra Arter of Salem, Ohio and Maia Williams (Wyman Rousseau) of Charlotte, North Carolina and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and her four granddaughters, Suzanna and Olivia Cainey of Charlotte, North Carolina and Adelyn and Emilia Cowen of The Plains, Ohio.
Cremation arrangements were trusted to the care of the Arbaugh-Pearce-Greenisen & Sons Funeraland Cremation Services, Salem, Ohio.
A memorial service is planned for Saturday, July 6 for family and friends.
