In 2003 she married Richard D. Ackman and they lived in Renton and Kent, WA.

Susan loved to collect china, crystal and silver. Her colleagues were always amazed at the way she could know the name of a pattern and it’s providence.

She will be missed by all that knew her. She was survived by her husband Richard, mother Lenetta, sister Lynn, and brother Stephen. As well as her nieces and nephews. She kept her sense of humor until the end.

    Dearest Lenetta and Family, I am so saddened over Sue’s passing and send my love and prayers to all of you. Sue was the one who brought us together by simply writing on Facebook and asking if i was her sister Lynn? Well we started chatting and shared stories trying to figure out who each other was. Then i got the chance to meet everyone and we have stayed in contact ever since. l am forever grateful to Sue for introducing the other Gingereskys into my life. I so wish that i had the pleasure of meeting Sue.
    With Sympathy and Love,
    Donna Lynn
