MUNTNER, Sue 53, of St. Petersburg died on June 17, 2014 after a short but intense battle with lung cancer. Sue is survived by her adoring parents, sister, and sister-in-law: Elaine and Sam Muntner, Marla Muntner, and Laurie Collins, all of Virginia; her girlfriend Jana Moalli, of St. Petersburg; and many caring friends and relatives across the country. Sue was a graduate and employee of Eckerd College. In addition to her wry sense of humor, Sue will be remembered for her many admirable traits - including her creativity and passion for culinary pursuits, her love of music, and her integral place in the local craft beer community. An enthusiastic observer of the natural world, Sue had a special passion for protecting birds, and she spent many seasons as a volunteer tracking and rescuing least terns near her home in St. Petersburg. Sue's family asks that you pause to remember Sue when you see shore birds and other natural beauty. And, for those who want to do something more tangible, please consider making a donation in Sue's memory to the Suncoast Hospice (www.thehospice.org/Donate
) where Sue and her family received excellent care and guidance during Sue's final days.
