Sue Ann Koloff

May 17, 1945 ‒ February 04, 2019

Delaware, Ohio

Sue Ann Koloff, 73, of Delaware passed away peacefully early Monday morning, February 4, 2019 at her residence with her loving family by her side.

She was born May 17, 1945 in Coshocton, Ohio to the late Paul and Bessie Marie (Wise) Talbott and graduated from Coshocton High School.

Sue has touched so many lives in the Delaware community and as a result few people didn’t know and love her. Many of these relationships were built through the village of children she helped raise during her 40+ years providing childcare. You also were likely to run into her as she shopped, finding amazing bargains at local stores and garage sales or at Mingo pool, enjoying the sun and socializing, while watching her ‘kids’. She was always a proud, happy and protective grandma to her numerous grand and great grandchildren.

Sue courageously fought and won her battle with breast cancer in 2013. Since that time, she has been a great supporter of the cause and an inspiration to others fighting the fight.

She was a devoted and faithful member of the Asbury United Methodist Church in Delaware and a member of the OSU Redcoats for 10 years, allowing her the experience of her great love, TBDBITL – The Ohio State University Marching Band.

Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 33 years, Kevin; son, Todd (Veronica) Keyser of Seattle, Washington; daughters Amy (Bill) Zoller of Delaware, Kirin (Jeff) Dixon of Delaware and Kersten (Josh) Weigle of Fort Wayne, Indiana; 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and special friends who demonstrated such love and support to her and the family during her illness.

In addition to her parents, Sue was preceded in death by her infant son Zachary Paul, brothers Gerald and Paul Talbott and her sister Beverly Courtright.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, February 10, 2019 from 2 – 6 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive (formerly 1510 W. William Street), Delaware. Funeral services will be held on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 10:00 am at the Asbury United Methodist Church, 55 W. Lincoln Avenue, Delaware with Pastor Philip Wilden officiating. Private family burial will take place at Oak Grove Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Sue’s memory may be made to the Humane Society of Delaware County, 4920 St. Rt. 37 East, Delaware, OH 43015 or Asbury United Methodist Church or Alliance for Cryoglobulinemia by visiting

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center is honored to serve the Koloff family.

  • Sue was a wonderful woman, and always a pleasure to run into; whether it was around the pool deck at a swim meet or while I was at school at OWU in the cafeteria. Thoughts and prays to the family!

  • My heart hurts for all of Sues family. Sue was the most loving, generous person I have known. All of you are in my heart forever. I will miss her always.

  • Sue was such a pleasant person. I shared some fun times with her, Joni Strohl, and Heidi and Jenny. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  • There was not a better Mother, Grandmother, or friend then Sue. I will miss you dearly. Love and comfort to her family.

  • I have such fond memories of seeing her heading into the grocery store or off the The Strand with a line of kids following her. She looked like the energy bunny with her babes following their foster mom. She loved so many children as Moms went off to work.

    Delaware will be a little sadder and the mailmen less busy filling mailboxes. Sue was absolutely the most thoughtful soul in helping others during hard times. No one sent greeting cards like Sue. We all need to learn from her. Be more giving, taking time for others and being so loving and loyal to mankind. This was Sue and she taught me to be a better card-mailer-giver. She will be ever so missed.

    What a gem she was. When she was reaching the end, it was her asking about me, my recent loss and worried about my family. And still sending out cards even when she was ever so sick.

    I send my best to her family. Her kids were loved by her ever so much. She taught them well and are good, good humans, too. The best to Kevin and all. RIP Sue.

  • Sue you have been a friend for years. We walked to high school everyday and made many memories at C.H.S. Slumber parties at my house with friends, listening to music, All the times at the Youth Center and the Freeze. In the last few years, dinner with Karen and Carolyn in Delaware would allow us to catch up on news. Thanks for these memories. Your old friend!

  • Sue amazed me, she would come into our business to do stuff she needed to get done and always had a minimum of 5 children with her. I don’t know how she did it. Sue always had a smile.

  • I went to school with Sue . She was two years ahead of me and I met her because she was good friend of my cousin. She was a wonderful person . Always so kind to everyone. Always caring about others. She will be missed. Prayers to her family .

  • Sue was one of my best friends in high school. We walk to high school everyday together. We also had many slumber parties at my house with Karen/Jean and listen to music. Many trips to the Freeze and Forest Hill Lake. Dancing at the Youth Center was also a highlight. I roomed with her this year at our 55 reunion and we talked all night. Karen ,Carolyn and I came to Delaware to have dinner at least once a year to catch up on what was happening in our lives.

    To Kevin and the family my prayers are with you and I would be there if not in Florida.

    Your friend always

  • Such a good and involved mother. She was so proud of her girls. I enjoyed spending time with her for years as she supported all Kirin and even Jeff’s activities through high school and college.

  • We were in Sue’s Lamaze class for Kirin. I ran into Sue all through Kirin’s Aand Dana’s school years and later time after time at the grocery store. We always stopped and chatted. I’m glad to have known her.
