Susan "Sue" Jo Weersma

Sue Jo (Restifo) Ginderske-Weersma, a cherished mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away on April 18, 2023, at the age of 66. She was born on January 27, 1957, in Oakley, Michigan, to William and Geraldine (Griese) Ginderske, both of whom preceded her in death.

Sue graduated from Carrollton High in 1975, and most of her career was spent working as a phlebotomist. Her colleagues and patients alike knew her for her kindness, patience, and professionalism. She was also an active member of Old Town Christian Outreach, where she found great joy in volunteering and serving her community.

In her free time, Sue enjoyed a variety of hobbies and activities, including decorating, landscaping, camping, boating, and cooking. Her family and friends will always remember her delicious meals and beautifully decorated home.

She also leaves behind her great-grandchildren, Chloe, Delilah, and Lola, who brought her endless happiness and pride. Sue was preceded in death by her daughter Tricia Sue Restifo, whom she missed dearly, and her brothers Richie, Ed, and William Ginderske.
