Susan Elizabeth Eastin

Susan Elizabeth (nee Bard) Eastin passed away near her home in Massachusetts April 9, 2023 after a ten year battle with cancer. Sue was born June 14, 1946, to Robert Lyle and Dorothy Elizabeth Bard. She was active in her church youth group where she met the love of her life, David Lee Eastin. They attended Cuyahoga Falls High School (1964) and attended Muskingum University (1968) before marrying and raising their family in Hudson, Ohio. The Eastins were members of the First Congregational Church in Hudson for 22 years.

A beloved English teacher at Cuyahoga Falls High School from 1968-1998, Sue was an avid reader who loved sharing literature with those around her. Moving to Massachusetts upon retirement, she became a needlepoint artist with pieces getting recognized in New England. Passing on her deep love of birds, flower gardens, seashells, and all things nature to her children and grandchildren is one of the many gifts she will leave behind.

Survivors include her husband of 53 years, David; her son’s family- Aaron Kyle and Michele Eastin with Micah, Jonah, Annabella, and Amelia (Leah) of Blue Ridge, Texas, and her daughter’s family- Emmy and Andrew Barksdale with Ozzy and Celestine of Beaverton, Oregon; her brother and sister-in-law Robert Bard and Janet Stone; sister-in-law Susan Bard; and nieces, nephews, cousins and best friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Dorothy Bard and her brother, William Bard.
