Obituary for Leota "Sue" Bornick

Perry, Michigan – Leota Ann “Sue” (Johnson) Bornick, born December 4, 1950, daughter of Julius & Helen Johnson of Kenosha, Wisconsin, died in Lansing, Michigan on December 19, 2017 after giving so much of her heart to her family that it could no longer sustain her.

Sue graduated in 1969 from Tremper High School in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  She was happiest working in her garden, sewing, and enjoying bonfires with classic country music, surrounded by her family.

Every time family came to her home they were greeted with, “Who’s at Grandma’s house?” in a sing-song voice.  No one left without eating a meal or taking food with them, usually from her own garden.

Sue proudly earned her college degree from Cleary College in Howell, Michigan, at the age of 57.  Though her self-proclaimed favorite job was wife, mother, and grandma.

She is survived by the loves of her life, including her husband of 48 years, Alan R. Bornick; daughters Tina (Walt) Sutterlin, Tracie (Kevin) Godfrey; grandchildren, McKenna Sutterlin, Brogan Sutterlin, and Sydney Godfrey; brother, Gary Johnson (Kenosha); many nieces, nephews, and friends who call her “mom”.

Sue is preceded in death by her parents and brother, Kenneth Johnson.

Sue requested no services be held.  The family will have a celebration of life around her favorite campfire in July of 2018.

For those desiring, contributions may be made in her honor to Ele’s Place of Lansing.
