Suzanne Huff Tipton, 86

Orrville — Suzanne Huff Tipton, age 86, of Orrville, died Saturday, August 12, 2023, at her residence in Orrville.
Suzanne was born on April 29, 1937, in Akron, Ohio, to the late Clayton and Frances (Mitcham) Huff and graduated from Garfield High School and then attended Ohio University.  She married Morris M. “Mo” on April 12, 1958, in Akron, Ohio. Morris died on November 28, 2011.
She worked as the Business Manager for the University of Akron Wayne College in Orrville for 25 + years, retiring in 1997.
Suzanne was the head majorette at Garfield High School, played piano and loved a wide variety of music, and modeled for Goodyear Tires. She was very mechanically inclined and good at fixing anything, and was a big Cleveland sports fan, especially the Cavs and the Browns.

She enjoyed gardening, and loved hosting the family for Christmases through the years. Her cooking was loved by all, especially her spaghetti.
