STOW -- Sue (Munsie) Stupp, died early Monday, June 11, 2012, after a courageous 20 month battle with a Glioblas-toma brain tumor.

She was born May 15, 1942 in Decatur, Illinois to Wallace and Ruth (Edwards) Munsie.

Sue was a member of the Delta Delta Delta Sorority at Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois. She graduated in 1964 with a degree in Elementary Education. Sue married her husband, Richard Stupp later that year. She taught 2nd grade at Ulrich School in Decatur for three years, before starting a family.

She was preceded by her in death are her father, Wallace Munsie; her stepfather, Neil Ewing; her mother, Ruth Munsie Ewing; uncles, Richard Edwards, Wallace Buck and Clem Davis; and brother-in-laws, Ralph Fields and Donald Stupp. Surviving are her loving husband of 47 years, Rick, sons Brian of Cumming, Ga., Jeff of Lithia, Fla.; five grandchildren, Lauren, Cole and Abbey of Georgia, Jack and Julia of Florida; sisters, Jean Fields, Marjorie (Jim) Griffith; brother, Tom (Lisette) Ewing; sister-in-law, Sharon Stupp; aunts, Barbara Edwards, Naomi Davis and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Having a love for cross-stitch and needlepoint, she had completed many award winning needlework projects which now adorn the house as well as others who have received her needlework gifts. The love of this craft led her to buy the Fancy Threads needlework store in Bath, Ohio in 1984. She loved to help people, teach her art as well as learn from others. She retired in 2005 taking many memories and friends from this entrepreneurial experience.

Sue was active as a member of the Stan Hywet Needlework Guild for many years. Sue was also very active at the First Congregational Church in Hudson, serving on many Boards and Committees, including being the Church's Moderator for the 2007 to 2008 church year.

A celebration of Sue's life will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, June 15, 2012 at the First Congregational Church, 47 Aurora Street, Hudson Ohio 44236. Memorials can be made to the First Congregational Endowment Fund. Sue will be inurned in the Memorial Wall in the courtyard of the First Congregational Church in Hudson.

I want you to know that Sue is remembered very fondly by many of us in the Stan Hywet Needlework Guild. I have good memories both of her personally and of trips to her shop. One of Sue and her shop comes to mind frequently: She and my husband, C. M., conspired to "lend" me a pair of gold embroidery scissors for display at Stitchery Showcase; Sue remarked later, with a twinkle in her eye, that she "enjoyed their special time together."

I went to school with Sue, and she always had a great attitude and seemed to smile most of the time. She was a beautiful human being.

Dear Rick and Family,
I was so sorry to hear that Sue lost her battle. She was such a great lady and even though I had little contact with her for many years, she remains one of the special people from our high school days. I know you will cherish the wonderful memories of your life together and take strength from those memories.
In friendship,

Rick and Family, I am first and foremost sorry for your lose. I had not seen Sue in many years. I talked to her occasionally on Facebook. I will always remember the girl I went to High School with that had an infectious smile. I never heard her utter an unkind word. I hope your memories will sustain you as much as possible, even though there is no end to the yearning.

Dear Rick,

Sue was a good friend to many and a long-time loyal member of the Stan Hywet Needlework Guild - as well as a spunky fighter to the end, just as she lived her life. We will miss her greatly and remember her very fondly for a very long time.

With deep regret for Sue's passing and hope for rest and comfort for you and your family, I send my condolences.

I am so glad that I was able to spend some time with Sue at our 50th MHS Reunion in 2010. Both Pat and I are thinking of Rick and the rest of her family at this time. We were awed by her battle and she is a true inspiration for all of us.

Dear Rick & Family--With deepest sympathies on your loss; Sue had a rare spirit, generous heart, and creative talent, touching so many lives. We were friends in 1st grade at French School & I still have a book she gave me for a birthday called "Children of Many Lands." We did not keep in touch after h.s., but I heard about her outstanding needlework contributions at reunions. Special thanks to Rick for his devoted updates on the progress of her care. Her courage inspired us all, much as she did cheering everyone on back in the day of the MHS Generals. May she know the blessings of a heavenly kingdom, now and evermore.

Dear Rick & Family,

We are deeply saddened by Sue's passing. She was an accomplished woman, a friend, dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother.

It is hard to understand why people we love so dearly are taken from us but find comfort in knowing that you and your family were a very "special" part of her life. This "precious" bond between a wife and husband - a mother and her children/grandchildren is "forever".

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Rick, and your family in your time of grief. May your memories of Sue bring you comfort as they are the legacy of her "love" for all of you. God bless you.

Our friendship & sympathy,

Rita Gyuire & Charlie Ault
