Obituary

Sue Anne Ash was born on November 4, 1946 in Robertsdale, PA to Fred and Mary Heath.  She is survived by her loving husband, Woodrow Jerry Ash, of 55 years, her daughter Marla Romero, son-in-law Brian DiPietro and grandchildren, Alexander and Alexis Romero and two brothers, Fred (Patricia) and Brian Heath and many nieces and nephews.  Sue Anne and Woody built a wonderful life in Reynoldsburg before moving to Blacklick, Ohio.  Sue Anne was a strong competitor in everything she did.  She loved to play racquetball in her younger years and won many trophies over the years.  Sue Anne was a strong and determined woman who left her small town after graduation to become a secretary for the federal government in Washington, DC. Sue Anne and Woody married and moved to Columbus where they had their daughter and Sue Anne stayed home to raise her for about 10 years.  After that, Sue Anne went back to work for the federal government and retired with 43 years as a financial accountant.  While working for the government, Sue Anne was able to obtain her associate's degree in Accounting from Franklin University.  Sue Anne loved her family immensely.  She was very close to her youngest brother Brian and was the best big sister anyone could ever want.  She loved her husband and daughter as it showed in everything she did for them.  Sue Anne was a second mom to all of Marla's friends and she was a wonderful cook as her dishes were always requested at any event.  She hosted all the holidays and made every holiday and birthday special to her family.  Her grandchildren were the apple of her eye.  She was always there for everything in their lives from pre-school, parties, band concerts, baseball games, basketball games, boy scouts, karate, softball and high school graduations.  Whatever the kids were into, she was their cheerleader.  Sue Anne and Woody even traveled to almost all of Alexis' travel ball games, even out of state.  Sue Anne was a genuine friend to all that knew her.  She loved playing cards with Woody, Marla and MaryLou on Sunday nights for years then continued to play with Marla and her husband.  Woody and Sue Anne also were very close with Larry and Sue Stevens as they spent many nights playing cards, taking trips, and having Happy New Years.  Betty Starkey also met Sue Anne at work and they were instant friends and enjoyed shopping and spending time together.  Sue Anne and Woody were always together, you never saw one without the other.  They took their family on many trips and traveled all of Western USA, Canada, and National Parks. Puerto Rico and of course the beaches in Florida.  Their love for each other was genuine, strong, and a great example of how a marriage should be.  She is going to leave a hole in so many lives but her family is forever grateful for being blessed to have her while they did.  Her family will receive friends Friday from 5-7 p.m. at the Cotner Funeral Home, 7369 E. Main Street, Reynoldsburg, where her service will follow at 7:00 p.m.
