Obituary for Susan J. Gusky

Susan J. Gusky (nee Williams) age 69, of Elyria, passed away January 22, at University Hospital Elyria Medical Center. Susan aka Susie, aka Suswad, aka Susie Q, aka GiGi was a born caregiver and nurturing soul. She touched so many lives caring for them all. As a daughter who cared for her aging parents. As a wife who cared for her husband who will happily admit she should be sainted for putting up with him. As a mother raising two boys who were far from angels in their teen years, but they were always her angels. As a second mother to so many of the misfit friends of her boys. As a sister always ready to banter with her siblings all the while knowing it was full of a strong mutual love and respect no matter the words exchanged. As a grandmother who loved and cared for her grandchildren with every ounce of her soul. As a step-grandmother who would never dream of using the term "step" because they were her grandchildren and she loved them as such regardless of blood. Last but certainly not least as a Registered Nurse caring for every patient that was fortunate enough to be hers and every colleague that worked alongside her. She embodied every aspect of the Nurse's Prayer with strength and wisdom when others needed her touch; and soothing words to be spoken to them. Joy and laughter to lift a weary soul; with strong compassion to mend the broken whole. She cared for everyone in her life with gentle healing hands. Truly a blessing to those who needed her. She will be sorely missed by all. Susan is survived by her husband Michael; a son Michael W. Gusky II (Melissa) of Ravenna, four grandchildren Paige, Tyler, Kayla and Noah Gusky, step-grandchildren Emma, Rosa, and Jasper Peshek, a sister Linda Sears (Tom) of Elyria and a brother Tom Williams of Huron. She is preceded in death by a son Christopher Gusky and a sister Patricia Williams. Due to COVID a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Check funeral home website for details. Memorials may be forwarded to Lorain County Imagination Library 9080 Leavitt Rd., Elyria, OH 44035. Arrangement entrusted to Laubenthal-Mercado Funeral Home and Cremation Service.
