Obituary for Susie Leaf

Susan Patricia Leaf was born on December 3, 1952 in Ferndale, Michigan. She was the sixth of seven children born to the late Dallas and Eleanore Rockett.

Raised in Metro-Detroit, she met the love of her life, John Leaf, whom she married on September 15, 1973 in Dearborn, Michigan. A talented and hardworking woman, she worked at various places throughout her life, including being an honorary lifetime employee of Autotrend, but her most beloved job was that of mom and grandma. Although she enjoyed a fun filled day at the casino, a vodka and tonic or gardening, the thing Susie loved most was getting down on the floor and playing with her grandkids. There was not a more involved and energetic grandma around. Susie was kind and generous throughout her life and even after. Per her wishes, Susie was a cornea donor with Gift of Life Michigan via their Eversight program.

Susie passed away on August 7, 2018 at her home in Wixom, Michigan surrounded by her family. She will be deeply missed by all those who were lucky enough to have known her.

Susie was the beloved wife of John for over 44 years. Loving mother of Jeff (Melissa) Leaf, Jimmy (Leslie) Leaf and Tony (Julie) Fava. Proud grandma of Hailey Leaf, Lily Leaf, Emilia Leaf, Dominic Fava and Lorenzo Fava. Dear sister of Judy (the late Dennis) Kern, Jan Rockett, Jackie Rockett, Jerry (Joyce) Rockett, Joan (Bruce) Horner and Dawn (Jim) Papin.
