Sue Ellen Reiter was born December 13, 1947 to Phyllis A. (Ludwig) and Charles W. Sroufe in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She passed away on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
Sue dedicated her life to raising her five children. She was a great mother that provided for her family and was always there to support them.
Up until the end Sue was always fighting for what she believed in. She was strong willed, persistent and steadfast in her beliefs. Sue was a “one of a kind person” who, despite her “petite” size, could be a frightful force to reckon with and loving at the same time.
Sue enjoyed teaching the Native American culture to others and, in that spirit, was truly the mother bear that never let anyone hurt her cubs.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her five children, Sheri D. Reiter, Bryce E.E. Reiter and Jody L. Reiter all of Fort Wayne, Mark D. Reiter of Amelia, OH, Todd A. Reiter of Van Wert, OH; two sisters, Mary Holland and Barbara Shamberg both of Fort Wayne; grandchildren, Ashli Reiter, Ben Reiter and Nathan Reiter all of Fort Wayne, Madilyn Reiter of Bloomington, IN, Grace Reiter of West Lafayette, IN and Onyx Reiter of Van Wert, OH; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Phyllis Sroufe; brother, William “Bill” Sroufe.
