Suzanne “Susie” Ryan

Susie Ryan WEB


April 17, 1930 – Nov. 23, 2013

The family of Susie Ryan announced her passing on Saturday.

Susie was born in Los Angeles and attended Catholic schools. In 1948 she married Jim and together they raised five sons in the La Crescenta area.

Susie was active in the community and at Holy Redeemer she could be found volunteering for any number of fundraisers. Whether raising money by holding bake sales for the construction of Healy Hall or hosting her famous “Sue Ryan Estate Sales,” she was ready to help wherever it was needed.

She could be found lending a hand at the annual Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce 5K runs.

But her biggest achievement was raising her five boys. She had an incredible sense of humor that she passed onto her children. Sue was loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her sons: Tim, Joe, Neil and Damian; seven grandchildren: Josh; James and Daniel; Anna and Matt; Dana and Richie; and four great grandkids. She was preceded in death by son Mike and husband Jim.

Services are being held at Holy Redeemer, 2411 Montrose Ave., Montrose on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 4:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to the Alzheimer’s Assn., Southern California Chapter, 4221 Wilshire Blvd., Ste 400, Los Angeles CA 90010.
