Susan Correa

January 19, 1955 — July 30, 2018

Susan Iris Correa, age 63 years of Niles, Michigan died unexpectedly Monday morning, July 30, 2018 at Saint Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, Indiana.

She was born on January 19, 1955 in Niles, Michigan to Jose Perez Correa and Edna Marie (Vetter) Correa.  She was graduated from Niles High School in 1973, and earned her Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University (East Lansing).  She had been employed for many years at the Logan Center in South Bend, Indiana where she provided guardianship and protective services for the developmentally and intellectually challenged community.  She was dedicated to that community, and often volunteered in supportive activities outside of her work hours.

At home, Sue maintained a wonderful garden of flowers and vegetables, and maintained a welcoming kitchen where family looked forward to her special lasagna.  She was also known to go shopping – often – sometimes at area bazaars, but also travelling to shop in Chicago, Illinois and Frankenmuth, Michigan.  Her shopping might exceed her needs, and she was generous to share her surplus.

She is survived by her sister, Clara (& David) Singleton, and brother, William Correa, both of Niles; several nieces and nephews; and a great community of special friends and co-workers at the Logan Center.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and by a sister, Judith Correa on December 22, 2016, and a brother, Joseph Correa on April 1, 2017.

The funeral service for Susan Correa will be at Noon on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at the Halbritter-Wickens Funeral Home, 615 East Main Street in Niles, with the Rev. Linda Van Dyke of Luvability Ministries officiating.  Committal will be private, later, at the Silverbrook Cemetery in Niles.

The family will receive relatives and friends beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday at the funeral home.  Contributions in memory of Sue may be made to the Logan Center, 2505 East Jefferson Boulevard, South Bend, Indiana 46615; http://www.logancenter.org/.
