Sue lived in The Plains, early in life, and was a firefighter/EMT with The Plains Fire Department and its emergency squad. Susan was a Deputy Marshal with Chauncey’s Marshal’s Office, with one of her dearest friends, Linn Keller. Linn also has provided much of this rich history of Sue’s life. Sue was an EMT with the Southeast Ohio EMS system — SEOEMS — Stations 3 and 4, she worked relief at Station 01: she ran a mutual aid call to Wellston, when Jeno’s Pizza had its refrigerant leak, and that’s when she was exposed to inhaled ammonia. She was an EMT for Health Pro Ambulance out of Carbon Hill for a short stint as well. Sue always loved her job as an EMT most. She moved to Columbus later in life with her best friend Sandy. After Sandy’s passing, Sue came back home to Marietta to be closer to family and friends.
