423. Sue Zobbe, 1935-2014

Susan Lynne Wallace Zobbe, a well-known local genealogist and long-time member of the Genealogical Society of Marion County, died on May 17th. On behalf of her many genealogical friends, I would like to extend our sympathies to her family.


                "Susan was born on June 26, 1935 and passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on May 17, 2014. She is survived by her beloved husband of 59 years, Wilbur A Zobbe; her children, Kim Hogdal (John), Lee Ann, Michael, Catherine Kuntz (Scott); 5 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Richard (Karen) and 3 nieces and many friends.
                She was preceded in death by her parents, Elizabeth Loder Wallace and Gerald Wallace, and her sister-in-law, Nancy Zobbe Midgley. Susan graduated from Howe High School and attended Ball State. Susan was the Vice President and Treasurer for nearly 25 years at Metal Craft Manufacturing Co., Inc. She finished her career at General Devices Co., Inc.
                Susan and Will were active for numerous years in the Indy Region of the Sports Car Club of America. She served as Chief Registrar and Chief of Timing and Scoring. She was the Central Division Pointskeeper for several years. Susan was involved with the Sherwood Forest Civic Association and served on its Board of Directors a number of times. In 2000, she became a member of the Board of Directors of the Nora Northside Community Council and served until 2012.
                Susan was devoted to her family, friends and community. She loved genealogy, bird watching, all things Indiana, and riding in their restored 1935 Ford. A Celebration of Life is planned for 4 p.m. on June 21st in Come Again Farm at 406 W. 256th Street Sheridan, IN 46069. Everyone is invited to bring their stories and memories to this casual, outdoor celebration. Memorials are preferred to the Indiana Historical Society or the donor's choice."
