Obituary

Susan "Sue" Mary (Paseka) MacSweeney Susan "Sue" Mary MacSweeney, age 61 of Marysville, Wash. passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, October 16, 2014 after a heroic battle with Multiple Sclerosis. She was born January 4, 1953 in Everett, Wash. to Frank and Frances Paseka who both preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband, Ralph Mac-Sweeney; her children Tiffany (Cleator) Murray, Dan Cleator, Lance Cleator, and John MacSweeney; grand-children, Alex VerHoeven, Nathan and Abby Cleator, Paige and Brittney Cleator, and Jason MacSweeney; and her sister, Lorie (Paseka) Posephney. Sue was an amazing woman who was deeply loved by all who knew her. A devoted and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend she never missed an opportunity to touch someone's life, help them in any way she could, or offer advice from her treasure trove of experience. Sue always seemed to know just what to say or do no matter what the situation. Sue took life as it came and was a constant example that adversity should not affect quality of life. She worked and retired from the Department of Assigned Counsel of Snohomish County. In her free time Sue worked tirelessly as an advocate for families as a Guardian Ad Litem and helped to found the MS support group of Marysville. She was the matriarch of her family, even while confined to a bed and took her message of hope to others whenever possible. She had a sharp mind, an adventurous spirit and lived every day to the fullest. Even quadriplegic and confined to bed as she had been for the last decade she continued to travel, taking cruises, road trips, and motorcycle rides in the side car as well as being deeply involved in her family's and friends' lives. She will be greatly missed. The family would like to say a special thanks to CaTrena, Amy, and the nurses and aides of Alpha Nursing for their hard work to maintain Sue's quality of life over the last decade. Services will be held at Solie Funeral Home, 3301 Colby Avenue, Everett, WA 98201 (425) 252-5159 on Saturday October 25, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.
