Obituary for Susan Berry Reitelbach

Susan Leigh Berry Reitelbach, 62, passed away November 26, 2018.
She was raised in the Grassfield section of Chesapeake, Virginia, the daughter of Bertron Webster Berry, Jr. and Alice Faye Hankins Berry. Susan’s maternal grandparents, Pallie Estelle Barr Hankins and Luther Gaines Hankins, lived with them from Susan’s childhood until their passing.
Susan and Mike were married over 40 years. Jobs took them to live in California and then Northern Illinois. Susan and Mike wanted to get back to Chesapeake and raise a family. They were blessed with two sons, Adam and Andy. Susan graduated from Deep Creek High School. She earned a B.S. Cum Laude in Home Economics and Extension Services at James Madison University. An avid reader, Susan pursued a wide variety of topics and interests. She was always ready to travel, visit historical sites, and learn about new things. Having visited half of the national parks, her absolute favorite was Yellowstone. Susan was very active in Church. She sang in the choir, played piano, taught Sunday School, led youth groups, and worked Vacation Bible School every summer. Susan was a member of multiple Bible Study Groups. Susan loved sewing, quilting, and weaving. She pursued multiple collections over the years, her latest passion being the original American Girl dolls. Susan also created a number of highly-prized photo scrapbooks for the family.
Susan is survived by her husband Mike, sons Adam (Megan) and Andy, and parents Bert and Faye.
Susan’s life will be celebrated at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, November 29, 2018 at Oman Funeral Home & Crematory, 653 Cedar Road, Chesapeake. The family will receive friends following the service at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, Susan would prefer donations be made to cancer research or to purchase Bibles through the Gideons. Her battle with cancer was long and hard, but Susan never let it define or limit her. She was kind and smiling until the end of her time on earth. Susan loved and was loved.
