Susan W Gronwoldt

February 13, 1943 — December 25, 2023



In Loving Memory of Susan ‘Sue’ Gronwoldt:


Sue, born on February 13, 1943, in Albany, NY, to Marjorie (Nellis) and Harry Wholley, lived a rich and fulfilling life that touched the hearts of many. She attended Sleepy Hollow High School in Tarrytown, NY, where she showcased her athletic prowess, particularly in basketball.


In the early 1970s, she went on a blind date with her future husband, the late Jack, through her brother's introduction. Their whirlwind romance culminated in marriage on February 20, 1970, and a year later, they welcomed their daughter, Kim.

The family traversed the Northeast and Texas before settling in Palm Coast in 1990. Following Jack's passing in March 2017, Sue relocated to Tampa to be closer to her daughter and family.


Sue's zest for life extended to her love for golf, and she proudly served as the president of the women's golf association at their Palm Coast golf club. Among her cherished memories were encounters with golf legend Jack Nicklaus and achieving two Holes in One. In addition, her altruistic spirit shone through as she devoted over a decade to volunteering at local hospital gift shops.


Survived by her daughter Kim O'Brien, son-in-law Shawn O'Brien, and grandchildren Emily and Liam, Sue, affectionately known as "Mimi," is also remembered by Jack's children Ellen, Bill (Kim), Linda (Nancy), Donna (Emil), Scott (Nancy), and a host of very special grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


Known for her quick wit and caring nature, Sue found joy in travel, exploring destinations like Europe, Hawaii, Japan, and embarking on countless cruises. She also had a affinity for savoring good Italian cuisine.

In celebrating Sue's life, we remember a remarkable woman whose resilience and love left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to know her.


Sue will be memorialized at Segal Funeral Home, 3909 Henderson Blvd. Tampa on December 28, 2023, from 1:00 to 3:00, with a service at 2:00 with Reverend John Long officiating. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Sue's life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Lifepath Hospice to honor the selfless angels that took such great care of Sue during her final days.
