Sue E. Steyer

Sue E. Steyer, age 83, of Toledo, Ohio, formerly of Swanton, quietly passed away Sunday morning, August 9, 2020 at St. Luke's Hospital in Maumee surrounded by her loving daughters.  She was born November 18, 1936 in Toledo to John and Leona (Mesnard) Curtis.  Sue was a 1954 graduate of Swanton High School.  She married Steve Steyer who preceded her in death in 1984. Once their girls were born, Sue resumed taking classes at Bowling Green Stated University.  She obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Education in 1970.  Sue was a substitute teacher and taught elementary students at Evergreen.  She later left teaching and worked at Bank of Ohio in Swanton for 20 years, before retiring.

Sue welcomed everyone into her life with open arms.  She enjoyed taking care of family and friends which included cooking and baking, especially when her children were poor starving college students.  She also loved winning at any game she engaged in with her family, especially Rummy Kubes.  She had a unique gift for making friends easily and became an adopted Mom to so many.  She had a strong faith and was member of Trinity United Methodist Church.  She was kind, loving, gracious and had a sense of humor no matter what she faced in life.

Sue was always putting others needs before her own.  When her daughter, Linda, was diagnosed with cancer, she moved from Swanton to Toledo to take care of Linda and her only grandson, Steve, whom she adored.  After Linda passed away, she continued raising him to be the fine man he is today.

Left to cherish Sue's memory are her daughters, Judy (Ray) Wilson and Brenda (Joe) Szych; favorite grandson, Steve (Kayleigh) Nidek; and sister, Ann (Ben) Freze.  She will also be missed by her step-grandchildren; step-great grandchildren; niece; nephews and cousins.

Besides her husband, Steve, Sue was preceded in death by her daughter, Linda Nidek (Larry). 

Visitation will be held Thursday, August 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  at Trinity United Methodist Church, 210 N. Main St. in Swanton, where services celebrating Sue's life will begin at 11:00 a.m., with Pastor JT Bean officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made in honor of her daughter, Linda, to Hospice of Northwest Ohio, 30000 E. River Rd., Perrysburg, OH 43551 or Trinity United Methodist Church, 210 N. Main St., Swanton, OH 43558.

I saw Sue's obit in The Blade and was so sorry to hear of her death. My sincere sympathy to her family. I knew Sue as a student when my husband Ted and I were teaching in Swanton High School in the early 50's. She was in my Latin class as well as an English class. She was a student who was a delight to have in class. We also saw her when she was working at a place where Ted had to go to give blood in case it would be needed for surgery. May our Lord's comfort and strength be with you family members at this time of sorrow.

Larry, Joshua, Rusty, Rachel, and I were traveling and we stopped to see Aunt Sue for a quick visit. She jumped up as we were talking and decided to make Rice Krispie treats for the kids. We hung out together most of the day. We talked about what memories we had of former visits. A lot of those memories included Linda and you girls. She always had a smile on her face. She will be deeply missed.
