Life Story / Obituary
Our beloved sister Susan Jane Mekula lost her courageous 30 year battle with bipolar illness.
Sue was brilliant and funny, talented and kind. She delighted friends and family with her creativity in music, writing, and humor.
Her death brings profound sadness to those who knew her. She was blessed with compassionate friends and family throughout her difficult times.
Sue leaves behind sisters Janice Alexis Mekula and Carol Mekula Barnas (Gary), as well as her precious companion, her cat Turtle.
Our family will be forever grateful for the kindness, love, and compassion of her many friends.
She was preceded in death by our parents, Alexander and Jane Mekula.
Cremation has taken place and no services are planned.
