Susan A. Stripe

Susan A. (Dunbar) Stripe, 62, passed Thursday, June 6, 2019 due to complications of liver failure. She was born March 16, 1957 to Edwin and Eileen Dunbar. Susan lived most of her 62 years in the Portage Lakes area enjoying retirement and the many walks on the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel for the past 5 snowbird years, as well as the main stay summer fun and social interaction from family and friends centered around the pool that Sean built.

The sudden shock of her departure from the hearts and arms of us here on earth can only be calmed by the fact that she was receptive to once again be in the arms of those who she had once loved, and to share eternity with her beloved God. Susan was devoted to her Catholic Religion and shared her loving care and generosity in more ways than imaginable. Susan will always be loved and remembered by all of us left standing. God bless!

Susan was a graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School and received an Associate degree with Distinction in Nursing from Stark Technical College in 1995. Susan was a caring LPN/RN nurse at the Edwin Shaw Hospital for 30 plus years.

Susan was preceded in death by her parents; son, Sean; sisters, Peggy (Walsh), Barbie (Lewis); and brother-in-law, Glenn. She is survived by her husband, Craig; daughters, Christina and Angela; brother, David (Sue); sisters, Terry (Dwain), Annie (Mark), and Nancy; beagle dog, Brandy; and several nephews. nieces and cousins.

Christina and Angela, please know the McNeill family has you in our prayers. We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mother was an amazing person. She touched and enhanced the lives of every person she met. Her dedication to God and her family is an example for us all, I know it was for me. She IS rejoicing in heaven. Please let us know if we can help in any way.
Dan and Lisa McNeill and family.

Craig & Sue stepped into our lives without missing a beat at Cape Regatta Condos in Cape Coral, Florida. All of a sudden we had new kids on the block that we felt we had known all of our lives. What a precious gift we were given for too short of time. Blessings to Craig, family, and friends who will forever miss Sue.
