Obituary for Myra Greene Suffoletta

Myra Greene Suffoletta, 89, of Georgetown, went to be with her Lord and Savior February 9, 2018. Born September 14, 1928 in Georgetown, Ky, to Edna and Lonnie Greene. She was preceded in death by her parents, her son Robert, and her husband of 62 years, Albert Sandy Suffoletta who was affectionately known as “Suff.”

Myra graduated from Garth High School and Georgetown College where she majored in chemistry and education. She taught chemistry, science and math at Scott County High School. She served on the Associate Board of Georgetown College and was a lifelong member of Georgetown Baptist Church.

Myra and Suff went to Ohio after they were married in 1950, to work with Suff’s family in the furniture business. They returned to Georgetown in 1961 when they started Suff’s Furniture in Georgetown. She encouraged her husband to work on building a swimming pool and a park in Georgetown, which he did successfully. The Scott County Parks and Recreation Board named the park and pool The Robert Lonnie Suffoletta Memorial Park and Pool in his memory. Once the furniture store was self sufficient, Myra put her energies into raising her family. She was a faithful Christian, loved her family and her community.

Survivors include her son, Richard (Sandy) of Georgetown and daughter Jean (Kevin) Tennant of Shelbyville, TN; three grandchildren Terri (Aaron) Cook, Rick (Caris) Suffoletta and Lily Tennant; and five great grandchildren, Grace and William Cook, and Vito, Cora, and Adelaide Suffoletta. Myra is also survived by a host of friends including special friends, the Barlows, Davis' and the Haggards.
