Susan C. Sacks, 70, of Coplay, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, November 3, 2022.
Sue loved to cook. She had several specialties such as Chinese Chicken, Stuffed Shells, and of course, that awesome “Beef and Beer” which were always met with “more, please.” And she was happy to oblige.
Sue was also an avid Eagles fan and Phillies fan and when they were not doing so good, she yelled at the TV. They didn’t hear her, but it made her feel better.
Her husband Mike was with her through cancer, congestive heart failure and squirrel bites. He stayed by her side through it all and gave her the strength to fight.
Sue never thought she would be a Nana, but Savannah and Jaxson made that a dream come true. She never spoiled them but was very accommodating to them… no matter what mom or dad said.
Her own pets were all rescues, from the Mama cat and her four kittens born in the window well of the old American Club to all the rest. They were all loved and spoiled and made the house a home. All their personalities made them each special in their own way.
Sue also loved her outside animals and made sure the bird and squirrel feeders were always full.
Sue never met an animal she didn’t like. And after having several jobs throughout her life in grocery stores and retail stores she became a pet sitter. Her company was called Snug At Home. And as a pet sitter, along with Mike, (whom she referred to as “the big toy” because he played with the animals while she cleaned the litter). She was able to have more pets than she could have imagined. And she spoiled them too.
The clients became family and every year the Client Christmas Party was epic. From the huge stuffed Santa in the tub with bubble wrap for soap bubbles to a tree in every room, everyone had a great time and shared “pet” pics with each other.
But her own family was her heart. If she could help them in any way she did. Her pride in all of them showed when she spoke about them. And each one was special to her in their own way, but they were all loved completely and totally.
In addition to her devoted husband of 28 years, Michael R. Sacks, she will be lovingly remembered by her children, Karl E. Unger and wife, Sandy of Coplay, Sarah Zareva of Burlington, VT, Michael F. Sacks of Allentown, and Jeffrey J. Sacks and wife, Jackie of Northampton; and two grandchildren Savannah Rose and Jaxson Anthony.
