Susan Duffy Schledwitz passed away peacefully on June 27th surrounded by her husband and her loving family. She was born June 1, 1947 in Lowell, Massachusetts and moved to the greater Akron area with her family in 1960. Sue became a licensed practical nurse in 1966. She managed patient care units in nursing and rehabilitation facilities for many years. She was greatly admired and respected by her peers and patients and their families. She was always the person to go to for understanding or advice or just a sympathetic ear.
Sue loved the company of her dear family. She had such great times with her beloved nieces and nephews. She enjoyed her life-long friends and always stayed in touch and involved. Sue's voice and her written words will be sorely missed.
