Susan Truitt Obituary
Truitt Susan Truitt, age 56, drifted away peacefully on September 16, 2014 at Kobacker House after enduring advanced cancer with great strength and courage. Susan was born at Mount Carmel West Hospital on October 28, 1957 to Frank and Kay Truitt. Susan's love for horses and animals began at an early age and continued to develop throughout her life. Of the many horses she owned and loved (Ginger, Winsome, Blathe, and Books to name a few), her horse Gideon was the most akin to family. Susan jumped and showed with Gideon for nine years, including when she lived in Ostrander on her beloved Edgebrook Farm. Susan attended Kent Roosevelt High School and Otterbein College. She graduated from Capital University Law School and practiced law before becoming a full-time mom. More recently, Susan engaged state and national political arenas before receiving a Master's from the University of Dayton and teaching with Columbus City Schools. Susan will be remembered for brightening any room, or pasture, she entered with her brilliant smile, sense of humor, and optimism. Susan is survived by her beloved sons, Ian Smith and Austen Smith (Ronald L. Smith); and beloved daughter, Tory Loux (Mark Loux). She is survived by many dear friends and the rest of her loving family, including her parents, Frank and Kay Truitt; her sister, Jean Truitt Ervasti and family; and her sister, Nancy Truitt Blosser and family. Susan is survived by her loving companion, Glenn Hogenkamp.
