SUSAN ADORNETTO (née Granstra), 102, passed away in her sleep on November 13th, 2022.  She was born in Grand Rapids, MI, on February 22, 1920, the youngest and last of 6 children.  She was the beloved wife of John Adornetto (deceased) for 62 years.  She is survived by her sons, Jack (Carol) and Robert (Belinda), and she lost her daughter, Susan (Kenneth Young), in 2001.  She was grandmother to Matthew (Patricia), Jenny (Jason DeBruer), Martha Young, and William (Jesse) Young, and was a great-grandmother of John, Marissa and Samuel Adornetto, Josephine and Jane DeBruer and Selah and Helena Young.  She is also survived by many nephews and nieces in Ohio, Michigan and Texas.

Sue spent her childhood in Grand Rapids and Ada, MI, and after High School worked as a beautician and then enlisted in the Women’s Army Corp in 1943.  She met and, in 1945, married John after his return from North Africa when they were both stationed at Dugway Proving Grounds near Salt Lake City, Utah.  After the war they moved to and raised their family in Ohio.  Sue was employed and retired from Marymount Hospital. In retirement, she and John were ‘snowbirds’ before moving to Florida full-time until his death in 2012. Sue then returned to Ohio to be near her family.

Funeral services will be held at a later date when she will be interred next to her husband at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery for veterans in Rittman, OH.

The family would like to express their appreciation to the management and staff at Brentwood Health Care Center and Harmony Hospice of Ohio for their wonderful and attentive care of Sue.
