Play Tribute Movie

Sue O'Hara went home to be with her precious savior Jesus on January 15, 2020. She is survived by her sons, Kevin O'Hara (Shellie) of Longwood, and William Kraig O'Hara (Tessa) also of Longwood. Grandson and absolutely the apple of her eye, Patrick H. O'Hara (Kevin and Shellie). She is also survived by her aunt Charlene Hill (Crossville, Tennessee), whom she considered her sister even though she was the only child of William Ray and Elva C. Turner. She was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Gordon Thomas O'Hara whom she met in college in Nashville, TN.

Mrs. O'Hara was a teacher for nearly forty years, teaching English, Math, Drama and Exceptional Education. She attended Peabody College for Teachers and was a graduate of FTU (now UCF). She preferred to be called Sue, Mom or Nana (to Patrick); however, she was often called Mrs. "O" by her students and the countless band students in Mr. O'Hara's junior high and high school bands through the years.

Sue was the ultimate in encouragement for her students and her family. She made it her life's work to help her students find success in whatever they wished to achieve. She found tremendous satisfaction in seeing others achieve great things with her help. She was the picture of Christ's heart of humility and help for her friends, family, and anyone who needed a kind word, a helping hand. We will miss her greatly until we are blessed to see her again in Glory.

Around 9 yrs. ago, I was very ill. Several times, Sue made her chicken and dumplings for me. She and Gordon drove all the way to Kissimmee to deliver them to me. What a gift!! I've tried to make chicken and dumplings several times since then but they are never as good as Sue's C&D!

We will remember Sue and Gordon for their many fine traits; but their smiles and jovial contributions to our lives and to those of many others will always be the highlight.

Kevin and O’Hara Family, one thing that’s constantly as obviously evident is the love your family exudes. This comes from the solid base of your family. Your mother is at peace now but her teachings will continue through your family for eternity.
