June 8, 2020 Sue Ann DeMong, 76, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 8, 2020 at Our Lady of Peace in Charlottesville, Virginia. She was comforted by her family and her strong Roman Catholic faith. Sue was born in Inglewood, California to Marian and David Liddle on April 17, 1944, and grew up in Whittier, California as one of seven children in a large Irish Catholic family. Sue graduated from St. Paul's High School in Santa Fe Springs and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, and a Master of Science in Gerontology and Leisure from California State University Long Beach (CSULB). A lifelong educator, Sue taught high school biology, graduate courses in gerontology at CSULB, and fitness and strength courses for older adults. Sue was devoted to her family, her Catholic faith, and her love of fitness. She is survived by her two beloved daughters and son-in-laws, Cheri and Tom Hubbard and Lynn and David Waidelich; her six grandchildren, Catherine, Marian Claire, and Andrew Hubbard, and Matthew, Mary Elizabeth, and Daniel Waidelich; and her supportive former husband, Richard DeMong. Sue is also survived by five of her siblings, David Liddle, Mary Reinhardt, Patricia Barden, John Liddle, and Jeannie Spahr. She is preceded in death by her parents, Marian and David Liddle; and her brother, Robert Liddle. Sue enjoyed running, playing games with her grandchildren, going to mass, talking with her daughters, and watching baseball. She loved being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of nature. Throughout her life, Sue lived in California, Texas, the Philippines, Colorado, and Virginia. She spent her last years as an active resident at Our Lady of Peace and was very happy in the care of the loving staff in the Nursing Center. A Mass of the Resurrection will be held on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at 9 a.m., at the Church of the Incarnation in Charlottesville, Virginia and will be live streamed so that all may attend safely.
