Sue Sobolewski

September 12, 1938June 19, 2021

Sue Sobolewski, age 82, of Livonia, Michigan passed away on Saturday, June 19, 2021. Sue was born September 12, 1938 to the late Harold and Maxine Ricketts.

Beloved wife of Buck for 63 wonderful years. Loving mother of Terri (Larry) Sobolewski/Korolewicz, Wendy (Randy) Johnson, Kris (Jeff) Kerwin. Cherished grandmother of Ryan, Julie, Natalie, and Blake.

Susie was well loved and will be dearly missed by the many friends she made throughout the years, many of which she met through participation in the Livonia Jaycees. Susie also played and coached women's softball, and was an active member of the Zoning and Planning Commissions for the City of Livonia. She worked as an Office Manager for Signet Printing for 30+ years.

In her spare time, she enjoyed many years traveling up north to Crystal Lake and Indian River. She was an avid fan of both the Detroit Tigers and Lions. You could easily find her out boating, fishing, gardening and finding unique items at multiple art festivals. However, the best times were the ones spent with her loving family and friends.

Sue's family will receive friends for a Memorial Gathering on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 from 3:00pm until 8:00pm at Harry J. Will Funeral Home 37000 Six Mile Road, Livonia, Michigan 48152.

Susie's life will be celebrated with a Memorial Service at 11:00am on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at the funeral home. The service will be led by Reverend Mark Raitz.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are appreciated to the Parkinson's Foundation.

Although I have only known Sue for a few years she has been a sweetheart to all. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family today and always.

Writing about Sue’s life is a tall order! As the youngest son in law she was
Like a second mother to me. I met her the very first time and was greeted by a woman with a smile that even Davinci would have loved! She was a sensational conversationalist who unwaveringly
Always put you first. Her selfless soul extended into her extreme generosity in terms of her time, effort to always go above and beyond with help to her children or grandchildren or friends. She truly was selfless and impacted everyone she was around.

I will miss her easy going demeanor and her ability laugh at my dry attempt at humor. We often shared very hearty laughter and her love of music and movies.

She is missed every day here and hereafter! Looking at her wonderful daughters, we are lucky she gave a big part of herself to each and everyone and the world is a better place because of it and oh so lonely because she no longer is with us! RIP to Suzie my second mom!

Suzie was a Great Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, and for me the best Mother-in-Law one could ask for! I have been truly blessed to both have, and to have had, the most wonderful and kindest in-laws in the World! We were all blessed by Suzie's love for others, zest for life, humor, kindness, caring, and generosity; and she will no doubt be dearly missed by many...... It's now time to both mourn, and most important to celebrate her life! To thank God for her Presence, and know her memory will live on in our hearts forever!

Our deepest sympathy to Kris and the family.
I found some comfort in this saying when my dad passed away last year. I hope it helps you too.

My mind still talks to you and my heart still looks for you, but my soul knows you are at peace.

Love to all, Brenda and Randy Canada
