Wellsville — Suzanne E. Scarry. 64, of Alderlick Road, died after a courageous battle on Sunday March 28, 2021 at Mercy Health St. Elizabeth in Boardman, Ohio.

Suzanne was born August 28, 1956 in Salem Ohio a daughter of the late Orville and MaryLou Strabley Scarry.

She lived all her life in this area. She was Catholic by faith. She graduated from Southern Local High School in 1974, attended Lake Superior College in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and worked for 30 years at the Columbiana County Engineer’s Office in the map office. She was the Mayor of Salineville for several years. She was on the Salineville Salt Festival Committee, and was Grand Marshal of the Salineville Salt Festival Parade.

She was an integral part of this community. She loved spending time at the beach, had an interest in photography and was a foodie at heart. She was the early morning coffee guru on FaceBook for many. She was so many things to so many people. She had an impetuous smile and a quirky sense of humor that made her beloved by all. She had many, many friends who will miss her. She loved her family without condition but by far her most cherished love of which she was so proud was that of “Mummsie” and “Maw”.

Suzanne was an advocate in the Alpha-1 Antitrypsin community and in 2012 she acquired a proclamation from Governor Kasich declaring November as Alpha-1 Awareness Month in Ohio. She also attended annual education days at the Cleveland Clinic to help educate others about Alpha-1.
