Susan Kotler 72, Warwick Class of ’57, enjoyed traveling
Susan "Sue" Kotler, 72, of Lititz, passed away Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 at Hospice and Community Care, Mount Joy, after a short illness.
Sue was born Sept. 18, 1939 in Ephrata. She was the daughter of the late Robert H. and Marian Wertsch Myers of Lititz.
A lifelong resident of the Lititz area, she was a proud member of the class of ’57, the first class to graduate from the then Warwick Union High School.
Sue worked 20 years at the offices of Drs. Hess, Swan and Holder. She also worked as a salesperson for L.H. Brubaker and Martin’s Appliance stores for 14 years. In addition, Sue was a member of the Toastmasters Club of Southern Lancaster County.
Sue was a friend to many in her hometown of Lititz and the Delaware beach area, where she has spent the past few summers. Prior to Delaware, Sue enjoyed meeting people as she traveled and camped throughout the lower 48 states and Canada. During those travels, she rarely met anyone she didn’t like or who didn’t like her in return. She will be truly missed by all.
Sue is survived by her children, a daughter: Kathleen, wife of Michael Steffy; and a son: John Frederick, both of Lititz; four grandchildren: Whitney and Brooke Steffy and Jonathan and Dava Frederick; and her dear friend and companion of the last seven years: Franklin Shafer.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Alan J. Kotler.
Sue’s life celebration service will be held at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, 200 W. Orange St., Lititz, Sept. 13 at 2:30 p.m. with Rev. James R. Gable Jr. officiating. Interment will be in Machpelah Cemetery, Lititz.
There will be no viewing; however, the family will receive friends at the church Sept. 13 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Hospice and Community Care, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125.
Spacht Funeral Home, Lititz, has been entrusted with the arrangements. To share fondest memories of Sue, visit lifecelebration.com.
