Donna Ruth “Susie” Dearth, age 72, of Jackson, Ohio, passed away Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 at the Holzer Medical Center in Gallipolis, Ohio.  She was born on Oct. 15, 1947 in Oak Hill, Ohio to the late Fred Henry and Garnet Irene Woods.

She was preceded in death by her three sons: Chris, Darin and Jason who were her whole world and she devoted her life to raising them. She was also preceded in death by brothers: James “Jimmy” Woods and Robert “Bobby” Woods, as well as a very special niece, Jenny Lynn Johnson.

Susie loved flea marketing, reading, cooking, her trips to Tennessee and spending time with her family and friends.  She always had a story to tell about all our younger years recalling things that happened usually with her being the star of the story. 

Susie is survived by her brother: Ronald (Ann) Woods of Columbus, Ohio, sisters: Janice Hughes and Joyce Woods, both of Oak Hill, Ohio, Sharon (John) Ward of Bardstown, Kentucky, and Teresa (Ed) Patton of Oak Hill, Ohio; and sister-in-law: Sandra Woods.  She was also survived by several nieces, nephews and many close friends.

Graveside services for the family and friends will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020 at the C.M. Cemetery in Oak Hill, Ohio with John Ward and Amanda Naugle officiating.  Services are under the direction of the Mayhew-Brown Funeral Home.  Condolences can be sent to
