Sue Ellen Lampl, 74, of St. James passed away peacefully on June 9, 2019 at Cary Family Care Senior Living surrounded by her loving family.

Mrs. Lampl was born December 31, 1944 to Clayton and Bonnie (Stageberg) Anderson, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the first of six children. She remained in the area until her marriage to Leonard Lampl in June, 1964 when they moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Sue was a teacher at St. Roman’s Catholic school until 1969 when they relocated to Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Moving to Baldwinsville, New York in 1976, they finished raising their children there until retiring to Southport in 1996.

Sue was an avid quilter, accomplished basket weaver and an excellent cook. The joy of her and Leonard’s retirement was traveling internationally and hosting their grandchildren every summer.

Sue was preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years Leonard Lampl in 2017 and is survived by son Brian Lampl and wife Laurie of Leesburg, Virginia: two daughters, Amy Szatanek and husband Jeffery of Huntingtown, Maryland and Julie Liptak and husband John of Cary, North Carolina. She was the proud grandmother of Andrew, Paige, and Nick Lampl; Adam, Nathan and Ben Szatanek; and Joey, Matthew, and Josh Liptak. She is survived by her sisters, Becky Kuemper, Tami Milliken and husband Todd; and her brother, Jeff Anderson and wife Pam.

The family would like to thank the caring staff at Cary Family Care Senior Living for their kindness, compassion, and care during this difficult time.
