RIP - Susan Jane (Scharf) Frantz

 
Susan Jane Frantz, 71, of Aurora, IN, passed away February 15, 2014 in Fort Wayne IN.
 
She was born March 4, 1942 in Cincinnati OH. She grew up on the banks of the Ohio river in Aurora and was never happier than when she was surrounded by her hills and could watch the river.
 
Having lived many places after graduating from Purdue University, Susan settled in her home town, co-owned a small hobby business, and spent many years working with and advocating for others in local nursing homes.
 
In her younger days, Susan loved camping and hiking as was evident in her 25+ years in the Girl Scouts of America.
 
Her sunny smile, random happy whistling and unique use of the word "fantastic" are just a few of the ways she will be missed by all who knew her.
 
Surviving are her Children, Donald Frantz of Aurora, IN and Kristan (Matt) Donk of Fort Wayne, IN; Brother David Scharf of Aurora, IN and Grandson Alex Juliano of Fort Wayne, IN. She is also survived by her Niece Elisa Scharf Lee, and Nephew David (Carrie) Scharf.
 
She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert William Scharf and Margaret Halliday Scharf and elder brother, James Scharf and niece, Anne Scharf.
 
Friends will be received from 11:00 - 1:00 PM, Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the Rullman Hunger Funeral Home, Aurora, Indiana. Memorial service will follow at 1:00 pm with Mike Page officiating.
 
In lieu of flowers, Random Acts of Kindness in Susan's memory are encouraged and contributions may be made to The Muscatatuck Wildlife Society.
 
 
 
Words can not describe the hollowness, I picked the phone up to call her about a thunder storm we had, but sat there and cried instead.  I know it is supposed to get easier, but right now it hurts like hell.
 
I miss you Mom.

    I am so sorry! My mom's been gone since 1991, and there are SO many things I need to talk to her about - every day! I don't know what else to say because I don't know you outside of here, but please know that many people are thinking of you at this time, and I'm one of them.

    Don,
    Deepest sympathies and condolences on your loss.  Your Mom sounds like a woman who appreciated life's simple pleasures; a quality we'd all be better off possessing.

    I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. All Moms are fantastic and though mine has been gone for almost 10 years I still see her and talk to her every day. My best compliment ever is, "You sound just like your Mom". Cherish your memories and happy times together.

    Sorry to hear it, King.  My mom passed on January 22 and I'm still walking around in a haze.  Hope it starts getting better soon for everybody.

    The passing of someone you love is very difficult burden to bare.  The obit was well written and it describes your mother very well.  I wish I could express my thoughts much more eloquent but writing skills are not one of my better skills.  My dad died several years ago and it was very difficult for me.  Good luck and stay strong.

    Oh--what sad news--I, too, know what it feels like and wish I could say or do something to help make it better for you.  Of course, I can't.  But I hope that maybe the thoughts and prayers of your friends right now will be of some comfort.

    So sad.my condolences.
     
    There must have been one "special dish" she made that will help bring back the good memories.  The taste and smell of food can evoke so many more memories than just a picture.  In my own case, it is not  food item, per se but a flower.  Everytime I smell Marigolds I think of my Grandfather and his huge beds, always lined with short orangy Marigolds. That leads to riding in the rumble seat of his car at age 4 or 5, and eventually climbing into his hospital-style bed at age 6 or 7 shortly before he died
