Susan Wallis (Tener) VOISSEM Obituary
77, of St. Petersburg, FL passed away on August 4, 2018 at home with family by her side due to complications related to Alzheimer's disease. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on October 3, 1940, she spent her childhood in Boardman and Canfield, Ohio. As a child, she enjoyed singing duets with her brother, and her involvement in school theater continued throughout college. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Education from Miami University and her Master's in Education from Ball State University. She went on to teach typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping at Elyria High School in Ohio before moving to St. Petersburg in 1965 where she taught at St. Petersburg Junior College and Northeast High School. As an educator for 35 years, her enthusiasm for teaching and for her students earned her the respect and love of her students. She was devoted to her husband and family and instilled her passion for education and learning in her daughter and granddaughters. Susan is survived by her husband of fifty years, Norman Herman Voissem; her daughter, Theresa Ruano; her grandchildren, Alessandra and Isabella Ruano; her twin brother, Robert Ely Tener (Marilynn); and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert William Tener Jr. and Ruth Ely Tener.
