In memory of
Suzanne Frances Casper
CASPER Suzanne Frances Suzanne Frances Casper, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2016 after a long illness. Her devotion to her family and her firm belief in God supported her in this struggle and ultimately gave her peace. She was 80 years old. Sue was born on February 16, 1936 to Florence (Comte) and Alfred Schlageter. One of eight children, she was blessed with a large and loving family. She grew up in Oregon, Ohio, attended Sacred Heart School and graduated from Notre Dame Academy. Sue was a member of Beta Sigma Phi where she developed friendships that she cherished her entire life. She married the love of her life, James Casper, on August 16, 1958. Sue devoted her life to raising their five children. She spent time volunteering at their schools, Gesu, St. Ursula, and St. Francis and supported her husband while he was principal at Ottawa Hills High School. She loved to cook for the family and others and is best known for her spaghetti sauce and sour cream coffee cake. Sue enjoyed spending time with her friends bowling, playing bridge and pinochle. There was never a shortage of family gatherings: Christmas celebrations on Bainbridge Rd. and New Year's Day on Drummond, family reunions, weekends at the cottage, and vacations at the Jersey shore. Sue was usually the life of the party and enjoyed life best when her family was together. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Sue is survived by children, Patti (Tim) Mikac, Cathy Smith, Lisa (Jim) Wheeler, Kevin (Lynn Szaroleta) Casper, Brent (Ami Reed) Casper; grandchildren, Emily, Andrew, Joe and Sarah Mikac, Lindsay (Joe) Smith Lyden, Regan Smith, Lauren, Jake, Megan and Nick Wheeler, Elizabeth, Jordan, Lucy, James, Luke and Reagan Casper; great-grandchildren, Jackson and Emma Lyden; siblings, Joanne (Jim) Kesting, Carol Koelsch, Ed (Ann) Schlageter; and sister-in-law, Nancy Schlageter. She was preceded in death by her husband, James C. Casper; brothers, Jack, Dick and Jim Schlageter; sister, Mary Lou Hoeflinger; in-laws, Barbara and Pat Schlageter and Bill Koelsch; and son-in-law, Regan Smith. The family would like to thank the staff of Kingston of Sylvania and Hospice of Northwest Ohio for the compassionate care given to Suzanne during her illness.
