Susan Elizabeth Melloh
July 25, 1937 – April 23, 2021
Susanna Elizabeth Melloh, age 83, died at Aspen Trace Cherished Memories in Greenwood, Indiana on April 23, 2021. Susan was born on July 25, 1937 in Indianapolis to James and Evangeline Johnson. Having lost her parents at an early age, family and specifically motherhood, was most important to her. She had the “gift of gab” and her first job after graduating from Shortridge High School was working as a telephone operator for Ma Bell. After launching her children, she returned to the work force as a receptionist for the Richardson Company and later for Tutwiler Automotive. Susan always loved a good joke and had one of those infectious laughs. She will be remembered as a kind and loving woman.
She was a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great grandmother. She is survived by three of her four children, Theresa Melloh (Columbia, SC), Paul (Alician) Melloh, and David Melloh. She is predeceased by her daughter, Catherine Sisterhen. One of five siblings, she is survived by her “baby” brother, Paul (Cathy) Johnson. She also leaves behind her grandchildren: Brittany (Scott) Howe, Kristin (Sam) Cartin (Columbia, SC), Kalli Sisterhen (Denver, CO), William Norris (Seneca, SC), Madeline Norris (Columbia, SC), and Elayna Melloh, and one great-granddaughter, Margaret Cartin (Columbia, SC).
The family would like to thank the staff at Aspen Trace for providing such compassionate care for Susan. She referred to her nurses as “Baby Doll”. A memorial service will be held later in the summer when it will be safe to gather. Memorial contributions in Susanna's name are suggested to: American Cancer Society.
