Suzanne M. Minnich passed from her earthly life to her eternal life in the arms of her beloved husband of 44 years, David L. Minnich, on January 12, 2021 at Hospice Hospital in Lakewood Ranch.  Sue's parents were:  father, Carlton Laudenslager and mother, Mae Hunsinger Laudenslager, both deceased.  She is survived by her husband, David Minnich; brother, Michael Laudenslager, PA; son, David Rhoda, PA; stepchildren, Mary Minnich, PA, Scott Minnich, PA, and Steven Minnich, PA.  She has 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.  Sue was born in Allentown, PA on April 5, 1937.  She graduated from Allentown High School in 1955.  After graduation, she worked at Bell Telephone for many years.  After leaving Bell Telephone, Sue worked at H. Leh & Sons department store as the manager of their basement.  When H. Leh & Co. opened a new store in Quakertown, PA, she was appointed the store manager.  It was at H. Leh & Co. that Sue met her husband to be and they were married on May 15, 1976 in Grace Episcopal Church in Allentown.  In 1979, Sue and Dave opened a Hallmark Card and Gift store in Trexlertown Mall and soon 3 other locations.  In 1992, Sue and Dave decided to sell their stores and move to Florida full time.  This after spending a few years as snow birds in Florida.  While living in Pinellas County, Sue took up league shuffleboard, along with husband Dave and liked it so much, she decided to go Pro.  Her very successful shuffleboard career led her to be inducted into the Florida Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame in 2010.  Sue also loved to play and teach MahJongg.  She volunteered at Manatee Memorial Hospital for about 8 years.  Sue also was a greeter and served communion at Parrish United Methodist Church for many years.  
 
There will be no viewing or service held in Florida.  Sue will be cremated and her ashes will be kept in an urn by her husband, Dave, until GOD calls Dave home and his ashes and Sue's ashes will be buried in the same plot in PA.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Tidewell Hospice in Lakewood Ranch.  Sue will be so very much missed and she is forever loved.
 
Brown & Sons Funeral Homes & Crematory, 26th Street Chapel, 5624 26th St W, Bradenton, FL 34207 is in charge of arrangements.  Condolences may be made at  www.brownandsonsfuneral.com.

We Lost Gene on 2016 12 23.  May He Rest In Peace.

We Lost Gene on 2016 12 23. May He Rest In Peace.

The Southwest Coast District lost one of its most popular shufflers recently. Gene McCullough passed away after a short illness December 23, 2016 in Bradenton. Gene was from Michigan and worked for the Michigan Milk Producers Association for 44 years. Gene was also an Army Veteran and very passionate regarding all Veterans. Gene is survived by his wife Shirley, his brother Lonnie and was preceded in death by sisters Becky and Dixie.

Gene married his present wife Shirley from Bradenton in 2011. He proudly helped with Shirley's induction into the FSA Hall of Fame in 2014. You would see the two of them together at major State shuffleboard tournaments  as well as our SWCD tournaments. 

Gene was known for his toothpick (in his mouth) while he shuffled---he would twist it around some as he pondered each shot. He was known for his outgoing positive and 'joking' personality.

We could all take a lesson from his genuine humor and friendliness to all he came in contact with on and off the court.
