Janet " Susie" (Rife) Stanze was born October 31, 1961 at home to Donald & Betty (Manson) Rife. She spent the majority of her life in the Troy area. She was a member of the Troy High School class of 1980. She was active in FFA and enjoyed Horses. Susie married her sweetheart Scott Stanze and to them a son was born. Susie was an Elder of Crosspoint Church in addition to serving on the women's ministry leadership team, Susie enjoyed teaching sign language worship. Susie enjoyed hosting loved ones and was known for her "stick to your ribs meals". Susie suffered a detrimental stroke in 2004 where she became dominant side paralyzed and suffered aphasia. Shortly after, she lost her lifelong love after 25 years of marriage. Susie made the best of the circumstances and fought like a warrior to adapt to the point of regaining independence. She embraced crafting, gifted in intricate bead work, jewelry making, crochet and numerous other medias with the use of only her non dominant arm. She made friends without the ability to converse. She touched people in a way that most couldn't. She modeled that life can't get you down when your hope is in the Lord. Susie was welcomed home on November 23, 2019 by her mother, her husband, a sister Diane Olden and will be missed on earth by her son & daughter in love Tony & Mary Stanze of Piqua, her father and step mother and numerous family and friends. A graveside service will begin at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at Riverside Cemetery with Rev. Larry Butt officiating. Her family is being served through the Jamieson & Yannucci Funeral Home.
