MISHAWAKA — Susan Elaine (Schertz) Moreno, 63, of Mishawaka, joined her loved ones in the hereafter Wednesday, April 2, and is missed by those she leaves behind.
She was an avid gardener, a doting mother to three raucous boys, an adept businesswoman, an adjunct professor of business at Ivy Tech and a beacon of light who brought joy and positive energy wherever she went. She enjoyed singing and dancing whenever the mood struck. Her spirit and influence will live forever.
Her husband, Vaughn Moreno, was lost in 2008.
Susan is survived by a brother, Stephen Schertz; sisters Vera Agonafer and Irene Schertz; sons Ben, Michael and Jason Moreno; and grandchildren Ysabella and Vaughn Moreno and Andrea Miller.
Her funeral will be at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Elkhart.
A reception will follow. If you are able, please bring a potted plant to exchange with others in honor of her love of gardening and sharing.
Honoraria will be accepted for the church, and donations may be made to the Mayo Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
