Pamela Sue Keppler

September 24, 1951 ‒ May 14, 2015

Lucas, Ohio

LUCAS: Pamela Sue Keppler, 63, of Lucas passed away Thursday evening, May 14, 2015 in Riverside Methodist Hospital surrounded by her loving family following a brief illness.

The daughter of Allen and Helen (Pinka) Harrod, Sue was born September 24, 1951 in Mansfield.

She was graduated from Lexington High School in 1970.  On October 14, 1972 she married Douglas Keppler.  Sue retired from Henley Graphics after working as a distributor for 17 years.

Always looking for a good bargain at local garage sales, Sue’s purchases were often given as gifts to her grandkids.  A member of the Petal Pushers Garden Club, she absolutely loved flowers.  A traveler at heart, Sue’s favorite destinations included Myrtle Beach, Gatlinburg, Las Vegas, and Florida.

Baking with love, her holiday cutout cookies couldn’t be duplicated, and her recipes were prepared by the dozens.

She was a member of Resurrection Parish.  Selfless, Sue was always giving of her time.  Weather volunteering at Resurrection Parish or offering to babysit, she was available to lend a helping hand.

She is survived by her loving husband  Douglas Keppler of Lucas; sons Timothy (Darcy) Keppler of Galion and Kevin (Heather) Keppler of Mansfield  and daughter Sara (Nathan) Courson of Mansfield; grandchildren Kaitlyn, Kody, and Kallie Keppler; brother Thomas (Sharon) Harrod  of Ontario; sister-in-law Jackie Kathery of Mt. Vernon, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Theodore (Vicki) Keppler of Lexington, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Joan (Randy) Hubler of Bellville, sister-in-law Betty Keppler of Shiloh; aunt Miriam Swank of Bellville; cousins, nieces, nephews, and extended family; as well as her very special grand dogs Riley and Reese.

Along with her parents she was preceded in death by her brother Bruce Harrod and brother-in-law Bruce Keppler.

The family will receive friends Monday, May 18, 2015 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a vigil service will be held at 7 p.m.  Mass of Christian Burial will be offered Tuesday, May 19 at 11 a.m. at Resurrection Parish.  The Very Rev. Father Nelson Beaver will officiate and burial will follow in Oak Grove Memorial Park.

  • Dear Doug and Family,
    We are so very sorry to hear of Susie’s passing. Still can’t believe she’s gone. She was such a dear soul (as Mom would say). A wonderful friend. She was always doing something for someone and acted like it was nothing. I remember all the fun we had planning Mom’s “85th surprise” birthday party. She did most of the work while I kept Mom busy. She will be missed so much and I know what a precious couple you two were.
    Our deepest sympathy and love and prayers.
    Smitty, Jo and Family

  • Doug and family, I am so sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. You have my deepest sympathy and you are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all.

  • We are so sorry for your loss. Sue was always such a giving person especially when it came to her time. She unselfishly donated her time for our wedding and for our baby shower last year. Sue was also always on the lookout for great deals at garage sales for baby clothes for our son and her giving ways have been passed on to her daughter Sara who is one of our closest friends.
