Obituary

Suzy Ellinwood, 80, passed away November 4, 2021.  She was born June 1, 1941 in Coshocton to the late Joseph and Juanita Bender of Newcomerstown.  Suzy graduated from North High School in 1959, received her Associates degree from The University of Akron in 1987 and retired from the Goodyear Headquarters in Akron as an Insurance Administrator.  Suzy was a member of Billow Chapter Order of Eastern Star #483 for 50 years. She was a Past Matron twice and held the offices of all 5 Star Points.    

 

Suzy loved to do many fun or adventurous things but what she loved the most was spending time with friends and family, especially with her sister.  She had 3 other passions in life: poker, golf and trains.  She has always been an avid poker player who would play any chance she got.  When it came to golfing, she was so amazing she should have gone pro.  The love of trains was shared between her, and her late husband and they even had their own train store many years ago.

 

Suzy was preceded in death by her husband of over 25 years, Daniel Ellinwood; stepson Randy Ellinwood; brother-in-law, Danny F. Campano and nephew, Danny M. Campano.  She is survived by her stepsons, Jeff (Vicki Hayes) King, Tod and Bryan Ellinwood; sister, Margaret “Peggy” Campano; nephews, Joseph (Cynthia Fisher) Campano, Michael Campano, Marc Campano, Anthony Campano; niece, Maggie (Kristen) Campano, great-nieces and nephews, Carrie Fisher, Ethan Brown, Danny “D.J.” (Jennifer) Campano, Jr., Danyale (Curtis) Lagasse, Tina (Bob) Bixby, Jay Adams, Christian Popa, Rita-Marie Campano, Devon-Scott Campano, Liam Campano, & many great-great nieces and nephews; as well as many other family and friends.
