Mildred Jean "Susie" Garris, 69, of Parkesburg, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 at her home.  She shared 20 years of companionship with Gary Dunmyre.   

Born in Coatesville, she was the daughter of the late Ralph Joseph Garris and Marian Carlisle McNeil.   

Susie was employed as a bookkeeper for AMS & DKS in Gap and for Beiler Campbell in Oxford. 

Susie was a generous soul who would give anything to anybody.  She was an Elvis fan.  She was called the "best baker in America" and put her talents to work at a business she started and operated for many years called Tons of Buns in Morgantown.  She had many happy customers. 

She was a member of a Central Baptist Church, Pomeroy.  She also attended Full Truth of God Bible Study. 

Susie loved God, her family, and her church family and friends.  Also, her walk with the Lord was very precious to her.  She shared the Gospel with others.  Sharing was a big part of her life.  She was always giving. Giving of her love and time to others.  Even when she didn't have anything to give she still gave.  She loved people and loved all God's creatures.  That was apparent by the way she fed many stray animals and loved and rescued many cats.  Susie's life wasn't without troubles. As a matter of fact she had many obstacles and difficult times in her life, more then her share. God allowed these things as he sometimes does.  To show his self true and faithfulness in the inner workings of our lives to those who seek him. On this earth God says our life is like a vapor.  God is faithful.  What he starts he finishes.  Susie understood Gods principle of life. She did not chase down worldly possession and riches on this earth. She pursued the Lord.  She invested her time giving and helping others.  Because we come into this world with nothing we leave with nothing.   No man knows the hour when God calls.  Susie was called home to be with the Lord where she truly has riches and treasures.  Her work is done here. She was a faithful servant of God.  I know that she is truely free of all worldly troubles and is happy with the Lord. Although it hurts me to let go. I'll miss my Mom. Love you Mom

She is survived, in addition to Gary, by her beloved children: Terri A. Fioravanti, wife of John, and Robbie T. Warden, Jr., husband of Susan; five grandchildren, Ashley and Jaclyn Fioravanti, Adam Brown, Ciarra Cruickshank, and Kristopher Zaccarelli; and three great-grandchildren, Stephen Kitchen, and Brantley and Isabella Cruickshank; and her uncle, James Carlisle and cousin, Helen Acker.   

The Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, August 7th at 2 PM at Wilde Funeral Home, 434 Main St., Parkesburg, Pa., followed by interment in Fairview Cemetery.  The viewing will be from 1 until 2 PM.   

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Susie's memory to Main Line Animal Rescue,  1149 Pike Springs Rd, Chester Springs, PA 19425.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Susie's family.  When you grow up in a small town like Pomeroy, we all knew all of our neighbors.  Susie always had such a beautiful smile and outgoing personality.  Many your many memories, get you through this most difficult time.  She is now an angel, watching over her family from above.

Mommy, I don't know how to do this without you here. You were my mom, my friend you told me when I was wrong and sometimes right. You always told me to forgive you were always preaching at me forgiveness. I love you. I find myself being mad at God for taking you away from me (I couldn't even tell you goodbye or that I love you.) I am broken and I'm not sure If I will ever feel whole again. I need to be there for my girls but I'm so broken myself that I'm no use to anyone. I wish I could dream of you at least I could see you. I'm so use to picking up the phone anytime and calling you. I found myself doing it five times yesterday just to hear your voice on the answering machine. I want to record it but don't know how. How am I supposed to bury you? How am I supposed to say goodbye for the last time to you on Wednesday? How am I supposed to go on without you? I don't think I can say goodbye! How can I help my girls bury their grandmother when I don't know how to bury my mother! How did you stay so strong when we buried mommom? I broke down and you helped me grieve and get through that day. Mom, I'm not strong like you. I can't do this! I want this to be a dream let me wake up please, please just let me wake up! I can't get the picture of you under the sheet in front of the garage out of my head. It is just stuck there in my mind. I just want to see you. I love you so much! How can I say goodbye??? I don't know how!!!! This gut wrenching feeling is with me constantly! I wish I didn't have to go through this. I wish I would have known God was going to take you so I could have been there with you when you fell. Mommy I love you so much I wish I could have told you right before you passed so it was the last thing you heard. Mommy I love you and I will miss you for as long as I have left to live. I can't do this!!!!! Someone tell me how please! How can I do this??? You met the world to me. Mr. Wilde gave me the things on your body and I have the rings on and I sleep with your shoes I know it sounds weird but I need to have them close to me. I love you mommy!

When I lost my Mom, it felt like my whole world stopped, my universe collided. Life changed as I knew it. You are in my heart, my thoughts and prayers. Try to focus on all the memories you have. Your mom was the first one to love you. That love lives on. It surrounds you. It lives in you. I am so sorry for your loss! It does not get better, but you will learn to handle it better. I love you sissy and if you need anything, please call. I am here for you.
