Passed away peacefully at home Friday, September 7, 2018 after a lengthy battle with breast cancer. Born in McKeesport, PA, on November 13, 1953, the daughter of the late Ralph Lukehart and Margaret "Peggy" (Shiring) Lukehart. One of five siblings, she is survived by her sisters, Nancy (late Petey) Drakulic and Claudia (John) O'Grady; her brother, Mike (Lois) Lukehart; her husband of 40 years, Chris Kneipp; youngest son Zak; stepson, Christopher (Georgann) Kneipp; step-grandchildren, Courtney, Shelby, Kelsey, CJ; and great-grandchild, Kellin; as well as her many nieces and nephews including Timmy, PJ, Tony, Lisa, Ryan, and Danny. During her travels with her husband and son, she was fortunate enough to have been a part of countless lives including her loving friends, Joni, Janis, Mertz, and Michelle. Her loss is felt by many extended family and friends across more than eight states and 64 years. She was a proud parent to not only her son but to his many friends, a loving and selfless woman who was lovingly known as "Ma" by many for the good part of the last 28 years. Suzy joins her big brother, Barry; father, Ralph; mother, Peg; oldest son, Adam; mother and father-in-law, Betty and Bob; as well other friends and family. Her light is a bright one that will forever burn with her family and friends. Traditional services will be forgone as a celebration of life will be held on a future date in accordance to her wishes.
