Suzanna Wells

Suzy passed away Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021, at Bridge Hospice after a long battle with interstitial lung disease.
Suzy was born on Dec. 23, 1945, at home near Alvada, to the late J. Joseph Sr. and Priscilla (Miller) Saltzman. She was the fourth of 10 children. She graduated from Vanlue High School in 1963 and from Bowling Green State University in 1967. She was a member of Kappa Delta Pi honors education society. Her first job was with the Findlay School system teaching fifth grade at Jacobs Elementary in 1967 and later sixth grade at Whittier Elementary and Central Middle School until her retirement in 1998. Teaching was a joy and Suzy was very pleased when former students stopped to chat with her. She loved people.
Suzy married Bob Wells on Dec. 18, 1976, at St. Andrews Church, Findlay, and he survives in Vanlue. To the delight of Bob and Suzy were the adoptions of their three children, Andrew Wells, Findlay; Stephanie Xavier, Springfield; and Sarah who lives at home and attends Vanlue High School. Night readings and viewing pictures of her four grandchildren, Taylor, Kamryn, and Sydney Xavier; and Grace Wells was a special past time.
Suzy is survived by three brothers and five sisters, Calvin Saltzman, Sanford, N.C.; Diana Armstrong, Pittstown, N.J.; Nancy Powell, Findlay; Paul Saltzman, Rossford; Jane Kirian, Alvada; Linda Mikkelsen, Vanlue; Mark Saltzman, Waverly; and Judith Alfred, Findlay.
She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by the recent death of oldest brother, Joe Saltzman, Ada.
Suzy was a long time member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a member of Vanlue Christ United Methodist Church for many years.
Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey is handling the arrangements. She will be interned at Van Horn Cemetery near Vanlue.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to a fund for daughter Sarah at Premier Bank in Findlay or Vanlue Christ United Methodist Church.
