Frances (Sue) Berry Ketner, 91, died on Sept. 3, 2012 in Carmel, Indiana. Sue was born in Utica, Ohio, on December 10, 1920 to Fritz and Anna Berry. She graduated from Ohio University where she was active in the Chi Omega sorority. Sue briefly taught junior high school English and Spanish following her college graduation. Sue married Wayne M. Ketner in 1944. They lived in Toledo, OH, where she was a homemaker, full-time mother, and a tireless supporter of her husband in his career.
