Helen E. "Sue" Bonebreak, 89, of Orlando, joined her beloved Dick with the Lord on Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017.
Born in Frostburg on Dec. 10, 1928, she was the middle child born to William and Nora Eberly and is the last surviving member of her family. Brother, William Eberly, and sister, Margaret Seib, predeceased her in life.
She grew up in the Frostburg area where she met her husband to be, Dick, at a local dance. They moved to Orlando for Dick's employment at Martin Marietta and married on Aug. 8, 1957, at St. James Catholic church in Orlando. She joined the Bell South Company where she worked and then retired after 45 years of dedication to the now AT&T Company. She was a member of the Pioneer Club (retirees of Bell South). She was a vibrant and gorgeous lady that continued a second career working part-time at the Stein Mart "Boutique" for another 10 years.
Her love for life and people made her known by many in her community. Sue and Dick could be seen at their favorite restaurant "Shannon's" with many of their friends from Bell South and Martin Marietta. The couple also loved dancing which brought them to many dances at the Elks' Lodge. Another favorite past time was to bowl with friends at Colonial Lanes in Orlando. When her beloved husband of 56 years passed in 2013 that left her heartbroken. However, her belief in God helped her to continue her active life as a church member at Blessed Trinity and staying involved with her family and friends. Everyone knew this lovely, tall, exquisitely dressed lady with the dark brown hair to be very friendly to everyone. She never met a STRANGER! Her nieces, nephews and friends will always have fond memories of this vivacious and beautiful woman.
Visitation will be at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 4545 Anderson Road, Orlando, FL 32812 on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, from 10 to 11 a.m. when a memorial mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m.
