Hesson Sue obit

Sue Ann Wyndham Hesson, 85, of Tiffin, died Monday, Jan. 15, 2018.

Sue was born Feb. 5, 1932, in Tiffin to the late Carl C. and Opal Herbert Wyndham. She married David O. Hesson on June 10, 1953, in the First Presbyterian Church in Tiffin.

Sue is survived by her children, Karen Hesson Brady of Bellefontaine, Linda (Greg) Grice of Bellevue and Dan (Theresa) Hesson of Grand Blanc, Mich.; her grandchildren, Cassie Brady of Indianapolis, Jacob (Karen) Grice and Andy (Kuleni) Grice, both of Columbus, and Adriana and Ashton Hesson of Grand Blanc, Mich.; two great-grandsons, Benjamin and Samuel Grice; and her dear friend, Fred Pfau, of Mansfield.

She also was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Wyndham; her husband in December 2005; and her grandson, Matthew Hesson Brady.

Sue was a 1949 graduate of Tiffin Columbian High school and a 1953 graduate of Bowling Green State University where she was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. Sue had a heart of gold and was a friend to all who knew her. She was involved in a variety of service organizations and clubs including delivering meals for those in need and was a lifetime member of the First Presbyterian Church in Tiffin where she served three terms as an elder and prepared communion for the church for 25 years. During her children’s youth she was a Girl Scout leader and she and her husband coached soccer for fourth, fifth- and sixth-graders. 

Sue would say she was very fortunate living a wonderful fun-filled life. She did have a tendency to worry about things and kept a “don’t worry” stone in her purse. She remained active and loved spending time with her friends and family, and they with her. She was very thoughtful and genuinely cared about others. She did a lot of traveling in her life, was an avid reader and dabbled in painting.

Calling hours are from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at Engle Shook Funeral Home, 135 N. Washington St., Tiffin. The funeral is at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21, at First Presbyterian Church, 96 S. Monroe St., Tiffin. Burial is private in Greenlawn Cemetery.
