ASHTABULA- It is with great sadness that the family of Susanne Nesbitt (Troy) Matthews announces her passing from this life on Friday, November 3, 2017.
She was born January 30, 1928 to Helen Davis and Charles Troy, in Cleveland, Ohio. A graduate of the Geneva High School class of 1946, Sue enjoyed acting in the theater and wasa member of the thespians. Following her graduation, Sue married the love of her life, Estel Matthews, on November 14, 1946 in Kingsland, Georgia.

Devoted to both her family and her community, Sue volunteered in numerous capacities through Saybrook United Methodist Church, Contact, Ashtabula County Libraries, the Salvation Army, Y Teens, Child Conservation League, and the Girl Scouts.

Some of Sue's favorite pastimes included reading, camping, and traveling with her family. She especially loved Florida and the many winters she and Estel spent there as snowbirds.
