Susan E. Gentry, of Maumee, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 13, surrounded by family.
Sue touched many lives throughout the community through her in-home daycare, volunteer work at the schools and helpful and caring nature. She enjoyed spending as much time as she could with her grandchildren making beautiful, everlasting memories. Sue was a master gardener and spent most of her free time digging, planting and getting her hands dirty in her beautiful yard. Because of her giving spirit and love of gardening, she often passed starts of her plants to friends and family; therefore, many of you have pieces of Sue in your gardens. Although she lived a very simple life, it was a life that grew roots in the community and touched the lives of many. Please honor Sue by paying it forward and lending a helping hand to those in need as she would often do.
Preceded in death by her loving husband, Larry, and brother, Robert, she is survived by her daughters, Melanie (LaCharles) and Andrea (Matthew); sisters, Debbie, Kathy, Sherry and Kellie; and her five grandchildren, Arielle, Analeyse, Emma, Avery and Elijah.
Friends and family were received and services were conducted on May 16 at the Maison-Dardenne-Walker Funeral Home in Maumee. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Perrysburg, or The 577 Foundation.
