Susan "Sue" (Banning) Jungwirth was born September 15, 1947 in Salem, OR to Lyle and Inez Banning and died on January 9, 2022 at her home. She was affectionately known as "Grandma Sue" to many in the North Marion School Community. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Gary who she missed immensely every day since his passing in 1996.
She is survived by her three daughters: Carrie (Dan) Jungwirth-Soleim, Darci (Kelly) Meyer and Shelly (Bryan) Morris. She fiercely loved her grandkids Kendall, Keegan, Molly, Peyton, Josie, Thomas, and Jeff.
She is also survived by her five siblings: Cindy Koenig, Mark (Trish) Banning, Craig (Becky) Banning, Tim (Donna) Banning, and Sandy (Bill) Journey.
Sue was a proud graduate of Gervais Union High School in 1965. She was a beautician and worked in food service at North Marion for 24 years. She loved sports, particularly enjoying watching her granddaughters play volleyball, basketball, and softball. She was also a lifelong Portland Trail Blazer fan and tried to never miss a game on TV.
Sue was laid to rest at St. Luke's Cemetery in Woodburn earlier this year. The family is having a celebration of her life on July 9, 2022 at Champoeg Park at the Townsite area from noon to 3:00 pm. All are welcome.
The family asks for any donations in her memory to be sent to: Canby Kiwanis P.O. Box 1004 Canby, OR 97013.
