OBITUARY

Susanne "Sue" A. McCreery

February 26, 1938June 17, 2019

McCreery, Susanne A. “Sue”, 81 of Huber Heights, passed away Monday, June 17, 2019 at Hospice of Dayton.

Sue was born February 26, 1938 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, Germany to Otto Quandt and Kathe (nee Kinner) Accornero. She came to the U.S. via marriage to Thomas E. McCreery Ret MSgt USAF. Her lifetime of hard work started as a baker’s daughter in Berlin during WWII, and continued in the U.S. as an employee of Airway Fashions, Super Duper, Lofino’s, and Shilo Laundry from 1972 – 2015.

Sue is survived by her beloved husband of 59 years, Tom; 2 sons, Roger (Tammy) McCreery, Jeff McCreery (Barb Lewis); 7 grandsons, Justin (Amy), Michael (Holly), Kaden, Rylan, Gavin, Ross (Jordan), and Logan; 4 great-grandchildren, Rich Mike, Gavyn, Riley, and Calliope; sister-in- law Mary (Pete) McCreery, their children Misty (Donnie) and Scott (Wendy); and of Germany, cousin, Olaf Hasselhof, his children, Yvonne and Katrin (Jens), and their children Ola and Pia.

Sue is the true matriarch of her family. Her passion is best illustrated in the way she loves her children and grandchildren, as well as her dogs. She often gave the last thing she had to help others in need; her character is truly defined through her generosity to all people, family and friends! Her sons know one thing for certain, and always, she loves them. Her heart is tethered to her family eternally. A lasting wish for all is, “go to Vegas and hit the big one”.

Graveside services will be Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 10:15 AM at Shelter B of Dayton National Cemetery, 4400 W. Third St., Dayton OH 45417 with Pastor Debbie Holder, Dignity Celebrant officiating.

Sue will be missed by many people. I remember when I first met the McCreery family on Gross Dr in base housing and then living on Bayside Dr. Hanging out with Roger and Jeff put me under Sue rules, which I had no problems with. She was like a second mother. She was very instrumental in my development. I have very fond memories of my childhood and her influence on my life. I will always remember her. I wish I could be there to celebrate her life, but due to medical reasons I am unable to travel. I am grateful for having Sue in my life and I will pray for comfort for the rest of the family. God bless you all.

Sue,
One of the kindest, most caring people I had the pleasure of knowing. I enjoyed all of our bowling tournaments, all of our after Thanksgiving shopping mornings, and the many times Heath and I had breakfast with you and my mom. You will be missed by many ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Life was so much richer because of you Sue! Always a friendly smile at Lofino's and always an eager spirit the minute the plane touched down in Vegas! I will always remember the bumpy flight we were all on. You looked at me and said "It's only bumpy when you're on our flight! Next time I'm taking another flight that you aren't on!" That was followed by your beautiful laugh. May your flight to Heaven be smooth and may your Vegas jackpot be at the pearly gates! Rest in peace Sue. We were blessed to know you! -Marian and Don Gebele

My friend, I am so glad we had so many wonderful years to share with each
other. I will miss you more then you know, but I will treasure all the memories of the trips and cruises we got to do and the breakfasts and shopping where we always found things to buy especially shoes. No one
could ask for a better friend. You are the most generous and strongest
person I know. You will always be in my thoughts and someday we will see
each other again. Until then, know you are loved and missed.
❤️, Mem
