Sue Martin, 75, passed away January 10, 2021 at her home in Uniontown, Ohio after a long battle with cancer. She was born March 10, 1945 in Akron to the late Harold and Martha Davis. Sue graduated from Cuyahoga Falls High School in 1963 and worked for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for 16 years before retiring. Diagnosed with cancer in 1992, she fought head to head with it and stayed with us for 29 years. Her will to take care of her family, see her grandchildren grow up and her love of bulldogs played a big part in her longevity. Sue always said there was no medicine as good as bringing a newborn bulldog into the world. She was active in the bulldog community breeding and showing dogs achieving two champions and one grand champion, something that brought her great joy.
Sue is survived by her loving husband, Chuck; children, John (Shanna Bryant) Martin and Ann (Gary Marlin) Martin; stepchildren, Charles Jr. (Lauri) Martin, Laura (Ed) Pearce and Nicole (Dow) Wolfe; grandchildren, Amber, Davy, Cody, Ellie, Noelle, Madison, Eddie, Abbie, Sydnie, Chas, Luke, Nathan and Andrew; sisters, Carol Ann (Henry) Sherill and Christine Bixler; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
Thank you to Dr. John Petrus and his wonderful staff who kept Sue here with us for so long.
