but by the GOLDEN RULE
Susan R. Jones of Wooster passed away Saturday, August 29, 2020 at Cleveland Clinic, Medina Hospital. She was 75 years old.
She was born in Washington D.C. on August 4, 1945, a daughter of Willis and Nina Ray Patterson. The family returned to Wooster where Sue graduated from Wooster High School in 1963. She attended Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio.
Susan loved to travel, especially road trips to national parks. Known for always putting others first, her full-time job was raising and encouraging her three children. She also hosted numerous exchange students who became part of her extended family. She also cared for numerous animals, including her cats.
Susan loved cooking and baking and was appreciated for specialties like baked brisket and chocolate chip cookies. While mostly a homemaker, she worked at Walter Jones Construction when needed and supported various causes and organizations, including the Wooster Presbyterian Church, Garden Club, and the PTA when her children were younger.
Susan was preceded in death by her father Willis Patterson, her mother Nina Ray Patterson, and her brother Steve (Ethel) Patterson, also of Wooster.
She is survived by her three children, Jennifer Jones of Alexandria, Virginia, Stephen (Venus) Jones of Santa Clara, California, and John "Jack" Douglas Jones Jr. who lived with Susan of Wooster, Ohio. She is also survived by her siblings, Patricia (William) Gott of Westerville, Ohio, and Kent (Patricia) Patterson of Westfield Center, Ohio.
The family would like to thank Dr. Jordan Garrison and Dr. Kathleen Boyle of the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Dennis Helmuth of Wooster.
