Mary Susan Norkey –
It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Sue Norkey announce her passing, surrounded by loved ones, on March 1, 2018 at the age of 66. Born February 28, 1952. Mary Sue raised her two girls in Jackson where she lived and worked. Mary Sue was preceded in death by her mother, Kathleen Platte (Allen) and her step-mother Mary L. Platte; sisters, Diane Platte and Carol Terburg; and brother, Michael Platte. She is survived by her father, John P. Platte; daughters, Jacqueline (J. Scott) Park and Theresa (Scott) Stopyak; and grandchildren, Trevor Norkey, Ella Heavy, Mara Stopyak, and Carter Stopyak; and niece, Michele Kreider. Mary Sue, also known as Fram by those who loved her most, loved to listen to music, attend concerts, take occasional trips to the casino, spend time at the lake, and take special care of her cats. She truly enjoyed gardening and tending to her flowers. She was a wonderful mother and a loving and generous grandmother to her grandchildren and step-grandchildren, who will all miss her dearly. In her younger years Mary Sue had fun bowling and playing softball. In her later years, what Mary Sue enjoyed most was traveling south for fun in the sun with friends and family. A celebration of her life will be held at 4p.m. on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the St. Joseph Catholic Church Social Center, 717 N. Waterloo Street in Jackson, MI. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her honor to the Cascades Humane Society or the charity of your choice.
