Susan Butler Grogg

Susan Butler Grogg, 70, died on November 23, 2016 surrounded by love. She was born to Wallace and Dorothy Woolston in Baltimore, Maryland, on August 16, 1946.
Sue grew up in Maryland before living in Northern New Jersey and then on Long Island, NY. She moved to Florida in 1979 where she lived in West Palm Beach and then Fort Myers before moving to Gainesville in 2008. Sue enjoyed working in a number of different fields during her career. She was focused mainly in the fields of Logistics and Administration as well as some time in the hospitality industry. Sue had a lifelong passion for music that still beats today in her son, Jason. From classic rock to R&B to her most recent affinity for Jazz, music always played a starring role as she recounted the many tales and adventures of her life. Sue was an amazing cook that found peace while in the kitchen. It was truly a labor of love that served to feed Sue’s soul as she shared her creations with friends and strangers. Her survivors include her son Jason Fox, her brothers Gregg & Wallace Woolston and her three grandchildren Zachary Fox, Justin Murphy and Joshua Fox.
She is preceded in death by her parents and her son, Brett Fox. Sue was generous of heart and touched so many in ways big and small. Whether it was how she often cooked extra food to then go find a hungry person to share a hot meal or just how she could be a good listener to someone who was feeling unheard, acquaintances and friends alike warm to a smile as they fondly recall Sue’s lively spirit and loving soul. A memorial service is planned for January in Baltimore, MD, where Sue still considered home.
