Susan E. “Susie” Gridley, 56, of Perry Twp., died November 24, 2020 at Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood after a brave fight with Multiple Myeloma. She was born March 12, 1964 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Susie started her career as a Special Education Teacher for the Crestwood Local School District in Mantua, Ohio, and then for the Happy Day School in Ravenna, Ohio. Susie then held several positions for Progressive Insurance in Mayfield Village, Ohio before going back to her passion for teaching children at various schools in the Mentor Exempted Village School District as an Intervention Specialist for grades K-5. When Susie started getting sicker and needed to be free from as many germs as possible, she then went back to working for Progressive Insurance as a Centralized Support Representative/Loss Assigner Associate. Her hobbies were traveling all over the country with her husband, collecting shells on the beach, and reading her Bible. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Susie had an affection for teaching elementary school children, especially children with special needs. She also loved teaching children about the Bible, and ran several children’s ministry programs at various local churches. Survivors include her husband, Michael Gridley; sons, Jeffery Hamilton, Gregory (Sterling) Hamilton, Thomas Hamilton, and Noah Hamilton; grandchildren, Trevor, Sydney, Ryann, and Eryn; brother, Charles (Jenny) Bulick; sister, Judy (Ted) Lakeberg; and many nieces, nephews and other family members.
