Suzanne Burkus Obituary
Suzanne "Sue" Burkus, 63, of Mt. Pleasant, passed away Saturday, May 12, 2018, after losing a battle to cancer. Loving wife, mother and grandmother, Sue was a fighting inspiration to her family and friends. She was born in Mt. Pleasant on Aug. 28, 1954, to John and Rose Kowalczyk. She is survived by her husband John of 42 years; two children, Melissa (wife Katherine) and John "Butch"; two grandchildren, Elliott and Avery; siblings, John Kowalczyk (Linda), Barbara Shaffer (Robert) and Marilyn Forbes (Jack); and a number of nieces and nephews. Sue was a champion when it came to people. She knew everyone and everyone knew her. Her friendly smile and demeanor would light up a room. Her hobby was not a secret: she loved to travel to Atlantic City with John. She enjoyed gardening and sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee. She had a love for Pittsburgh sports and spent many Saturdays down at Pitt football games, hanging with friends and tailgating. There was never a dull moment with Sue Burkus. Her love and laughter will live on forever. She will be so dearly missed.
Visitation for family and friends will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at SALOOM-REGA FUNERAL SERVICE, 730 W. Main St., Mt. Pleasant, where a memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. followed by a reception at Mt. Pleasant Fireman's Club.
Please visit Sue's online memorial at www.saloom-rega.com to sign the condolence guestbook. Richard Rega, funeral director.
