Suzanne A. Stallman Obituary
Stallman YORK Suzanne A. Stallman, 76, died on Wednesday, December 26, 2012, at home. She was the wife of George L. "Ben" Stallman, III, to whom she was married for 54 years. Born January 2, 1936, in Boston, Massachusetts, she was the daughter of the late Charles M. Abbe and the late Anne (Lewis) Boote, and step-daughter of the late Edward S. Boote. Sue retired as the owner of The Classic Needle in York and spent the past 15 years stitching, golfing, traveling, and enjoying time with her family. Her memberships included The Country Club of York, The Garden Club of York, Embroiders Guild of America, the Women's Auxiliary-York College of Pennsylvania, and First Presbyterian Church of York. Sue was known for her talents with a needle and thread. Beautiful pillows and framed pieces done in cross-stitch and needlepoint decorate her home and cozy knitted socks, hats, scarves, and gloves kept her and her family warm. She was a terrific gardener and had gorgeous plants and flowers in every season. She loved to travel to England, Scotland, France, and Florida. She looked forward to the next time she could sink her toes in the sand at the beach. She was always quick to share a warm smile or hearty laugh and loved a good joke. Sue was fun, happy, caring, gracious, and most of all she was always generous in her love for her family and friends. In addition to her husband, Sue is survived by her son, Alexander M. Stallman, and his wife Jutta, of York ; two daughters, Anne S. Dougherty, and her husband Vincent, of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, and Elizabeth S. Madden, and her husband John, of Lauderdale, Minnesota; three grandchildren, Alison Stallman, Christian Stallman, and Shawn Lips; and a brother, Charles L. Abbe of Concord, New Hampshire. She also was preceded in death by a daughter, Abbe E. Stallman, and a brother, John R. Abbe. Funeral services are scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday, January 4, 2013, at First Presbyterian Church of York, 225 E. Market St., with The Rev. Dr. John E. Morgan officiating. Visitation will be 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 3, 2013, at Kuhner Associates Funeral Directors, Inc., 863 S. George St., York (the former Hahn Home).
