SALLY JANE JONES BUTZ-VOSS
Sarah (Sally) Jane Jones Butz-Voss, 84, of Charlotte, NC, passed away on March 1, 2020 in Charlotte, NC. She was born on February 5, 1936 in Canonsburg, PA.
Born and bred a “Pittsburgher,” Sally reluctantly moved to Chagrin Falls, OH in 1963 with her husband, Stu. Once in Chagrin, she found and made a wonderful home and life in a town she loved and championed. She was grateful to have had two long happy marriages and three loving daughters in Chagrin. Those three daughters will continue to love her back.
To champion her home, Sally served 18 years as a council member for South Russell Village, was an active member of Geauga County GOP, Geauga Park District Board, including the West Woods Park, and Vice President of the Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce to name a few highlights of her public service. Upon her move to North Carolina she continued her commitment to community as a member of the Levine Senior Center.
Sally always wanted everyone welcomed and well fed, often inviting strangers to the family dinner table, especially at holidays. But to Sally, loved ones extended well beyond family, to friends and those she sensed needed a little extra help; including a number of goofy dogs over the years.
Sally is survived by her three daughters Rebecca (Ross) MacIver, Lauren Brinton, Cassandra Butz, step-son Dave (Mary Lou) Voss and siblings Charlotte Parker and Jone (William) Osborn.
She was blessed with many grandchildren, Stephanie Voss, Michael Voss, Jessica (Kris) Giebel, Gwen MacIver, Meg (Tom) Mansour, Morgan Brinton, Curt MacIver, and Kyle Brinton.
She was also blessed with three great-grandchildren, Maggie Howard, Aubree Giebel, and Haylee Giebel.
She was preceded in death by her two husbands, Stuart E. Butz, and Richard W. Voss. She asked it be stated that she was a “PITTSBURGH STEELERS FAN TO THE END.”
In lieu of flowers please donate to the American Cancer Society or Hospice and Palliative Care.
A memorial celebration of life will be held on March 28th, 2020 at Brookdale Senior Living, South Charlotte, 5515 Rea Rd., Charlotte, NC 28226.**

Suzanne Gloden, 85, an iconic part of the Chagrin Falls/Bainbridge community passed away under the serenity of the February 9th full moon with family holding her hand.
Suzanne was educated at Laurel School and a graduate of Bainbridge High School, Class of 52. A self-taught business woman, Suzanne ran several successful businesses and made countless friends along the way.
Her passion in life was art of all kinds. From her own works to her incredible gardens … all she touched became a masterpiece. As a fine art conservator, she breathed life back into paintings for churches, museums, and her private clients around the world. Their beauty will shine for centuries more.
Suzanne made her corner of the world beautiful and she will be missed by so many.
At her request there will be no memorial service. Condolences may be shared by planting a flower or tree in her memory.
The family wishes to thank Hospice of the Western Reserve for their incredible support during this difficult time.
