Suzanne Plato Obituary

Suzanne D. Plato

Suzanne D. Plato, known affectionately to friends and family as Sue, passed away peacefully on January 9, 2024, in Lorain, OH at the age of 68. Born on July 16, 1955, Sue lived a life marked by warmth, kindness, and her own personal flair.

Sue's professional life was notably spent with Ford Motor Company, where she began her career in 1977 at the Lorain Assembly Plant. Sue was transferred to the Avon plant, where she finally retired in 2007.  Her colleagues remember her as a reliable and friendly presence, often arriving with a homemade dish to share.

She had a green thumb, finding solace and delight in her garden, which was a testament to her patience and care. Sue loved harvesting fresh cut flowers and home grown vegetables from her garden.

Casino trips were a favored pastime for Sue, where she enjoyed the thrill and excitement that came with each spin of the wheel.

Sue's love for her family knew no bounds, especially when it came to spending time with her grandchildren. Each moment with them was treasured, as she imparted wisdom, shared laughs, and created memories that will never be forgotten.

Sue enjoyed black and white movies, loud  music, and cutting it up on the dance floor.  Her passion for cooking was another way she expressed her love, crafting delicious meals that became the centerpiece of family gatherings.

Her pet dogs were never far from her side, providing companionship and unconditional love. They were a constant source of happiness and a reflection of her kind and nurturing spirit.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Mary Plato; and infant son, Raymond Davis Jr.

She is survived by her children, Jan D. Plato, Jessica R. (Bradley) Lapp, and Jennifer R. (Geoffrey) Silac; siblings, Sheryl Carter, Barbara Plato, Michelle Wade, Tracie Laws, Raymond “CJ” Plato, and Michael “Hank” Plato; grandsons, Nicholas Plato and Barrett Lapp; and 2 great-granddaughters.
