Shirley Ann “Sue” DeMarco, of Brookfield, Ohio, passed from this life on Friday, October 22, 2021, while a patient at O’Brien’s Memorial Nursing Home, Masury, Ohio, following a long struggle with chronic pain. She was 64.
Sue was born March 23, 1957, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a daughter to William J. and Ruth E. (Diefenderfer) DeMarco.
