Susan Romick, age 71, passed away with family by her side on September 8, 2020. She was born January 3, 1949 to Harold and Charlotte (Jenkins) McGee and raised in Findlay, OH. She raised two daughters, Christen Smith and Meghan (Tim) Dawson. In 2003 she married Tom Romick and joined his family, including three children, Chase Romick, Megan Romick Sommer, and Matthew Romick.
Susan had a long career dedicated to teaching others, starting as an elementary school teacher in Elyria, OH and culminating in her retirement from the University of Findlay TESOL program. Her teaching extended well beyond formal education. She shared her love of reading in book clubs and as the first Read For L.I.F.E. (adult literacy program) Tutor Coordinator. She was also dedicated to sharing her faith in Christ with friends and loved ones, and in her roles as Education Coordinator and organizer of Adult Sunday School curriculum at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church.
She was active in many civic and social groups in Findlay. She especially loved reading and talking about books in her book clubs. Her love of books has been passed on to her children and grandchildren, who are all avid bibliophiles. Her playful spirit came out in co-founding a local women’s social group called B.A.G.G.I.E.S. and in her frequent party planning, which filled the house with laughter her children will remember fondly.
Most of all, Susan was dedicated to her family. She was known for her fun-loving, youthful spirit, which she shared generously with her grandchildren who affectionately called her "Bubbles." Her family's memories will be filled with love and laughter.
Susan will be lovingly remembered by her husband and their children; sisters and families Barbara (Jim) Payne, Kathy (Jim) Federici, and Betsy (Rob) Fender; grandchildren, McKenna, Toby, Logan, Cooper, Ursula, Naomi, Eliot, Arlo, and Isaac; and nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed by the many other people she loved and touched deeply.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to the wonderful, caring people at Bridge Home Hospice, or the Mazza Museum Art Acquisition Fund where a new work of art will be dedicated in memory of Susan.
