Sue Harman

March 20, 1946 — October 10, 2022


Sue Harman of Warsaw, age 76, passed away unexpectedly on October 10, 2022 while on vacation on Hilton Head Island. Her kindness, service to others, and love for her family, friends, and community will be immeasurably missed by all who knew her.

Born Betty Sue Cooper, most knew her as Sue. She was born on March 20, 1946 to Gene and Jane (Keller) Cooper in Wabash, Indiana. She was a 1964 graduate of Southwood High School, where she was the valedictorian of her class, and a 1968 graduate of Manchester University. She later earned a Masters in Mathematics from Purdue University. She married Lee Harman, her college sweetheart, on August 14, 1966. They shared 56 happy years together.

Sue was well-known and well-loved as a math teacher to generations of students at Warsaw Community High School. She and Lee enjoyed hiking, biking, watching sports, and traveling. As an avid reader, she belonged to three different book clubs. Most of all she treasured spending time with her family and beloved grandchildren.

A longtime member of Trinity United Methodist Church and active community volunteer, she served in many leadership roles over the years. In recent years, Sue dedicated many hours to the Salvation Army Food Pantry. Guided by her strong faith, Sue’s life and her service were her witness.

Sue is survived by her husband, Lee Harman; her siblings, Ruth “Toby” (Galen) Clark of Marion and Tim (Patty) Cooper of Wabash; her children: Matt (Lucy Bisognano) Harman of Seattle, Beth Harman Willer of Dublin, Ohio, and Craig (Jean Lamont) Harman of Louisville, Kentucky; and five grandchildren: Owen, Alice, Sam, Rosa, and Russell.
