Susann M. Foote

December 10, 1940 ~ April 12, 2022 (age 81)


WADSWORTH---Susann M. Foote, 81, passed away on April 12, 2022 and Heaven gained a Angel. Although she will be beyond missed, we have comfort in knowing that she is with her mother and father Theresa and Edwin Hammer and her special aunt and uncle Margaret and Fred Blake who passed away many years ago. Susann was born December 10, 1940 in Barberton and graduated from St. Mary’s high school in 1957.  She married right after high school and raised five children.  In 1975 she started a long career in the automobile business, where she met her husband, Ron Foote.  She retired in 2003 from Lambert Buick GMC. She was truly one of a kind; A strong-willed woman who lived every day of her life with grace and grit.  Her greatest accomplishment was raising five children as a mostly single mother.  She always did whatever she had to do to make sure that they had the best of everything.  Her strength and determination only ended with her final breath.  It was amazing to witness how truly strong of a woman she was. Her spirit and love of life was wonderful.  She never met a stranger and always made the best out of everything….her simple pleasure was a glass of wine or a beer and she loved to go out to dinner at her favorite restaurant and to sit in her reserved seat by the fireplace. Sue passed peacefully with her family by her side.  She leaves behind her husband of 25 years Ronald Foote and her brother Tim (Candy) Hammer.  She also leaves her children Debbie Cunningham, Don (Brenda) Watts, Vickie Watts and her twins Janet (Tom) Howell and Mark (Sioux) Watts.  She was known as Nana to her grandchildren, Jennifer, Tim, Jacoby, Jace, Jayden, Alexa and Samantha. In her life, family wasn’t defined by blood, her "other" kids meant as much as her own Annette (Paul) Rosebrock and Skye; Greg Foote and his kids Gavin, Kya, and Ava; Jeff (Teri) Foote, Erika, Chasity, Peyton, and Jeff Jr….aka JJ; and great grandchild Tyson. She might be gone but she will never be forgotten….”STRONG LIKE BULL”….Rest in Peace.
