“It’s tough to find the words to describe a human like Sue. Her strength, resilience, grace, and love are just a few of the things that made her a woman I will always look up to and remember fondly.” – Erin Scott-Williams
Susan J. Webb, 63, of Ocean City, NJ passed away on Tuesday evening, July 14, 2020. Sue died at home comforted by her partner & wife of 23 years, Pat Cowan.
Sue is survived by her mother (Bernice), brother (Robert), sister (Jane), wife (Pat), and her four children: Jack Wiese and his wife Sarah Wiese, Chuck Hilman, and Shane & Caitlin Cowan.
Daughter of Bernice Webb and sister to Robert Webb and Jane D’arista, Sue grew up in Broomall, Pennsylvania. Sue graduated from Marple Newton High School, Goddard College, and New York University. Sue began her career at Johnson & Johnson and Bankers Trust, but spent more than 30 years at JP Morgan Chase in various retail & commercial business roles. She retired as a senior global banking executive in 2012.
Following her retirement, she spent her time down the shore in Ocean City and in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Sue was a big-hearted friend, overly-generous mother and wife, and all around altruistic individual.
Warmly known by her friends and family for her loving, affable character, Sue had a charismatic energy that anyone and everyone was drawn to. Whether Sue was in the kitchen cooking up something new or serving a crowd favorite (chicken fajitas, ribs, or her famous cheesecake), playing an umpteenth hand of late night pinochle, getting in a round of golf with her ladies’ league, Sue was always found sharing with others.
Sue was an avid crossword & sudoku puzzler, vodka tonic and red wine connoisseur, yoga enthusiast, and a converted Philadelphia Eagles fan (previously a Giants fan). Sue always put an emphasis on the importance of creating memories with loved ones and family no matter how small or grandiose the experience – from cozy movie nights at home to adventure-filled family vacations overseas.
“With Sue’s constant positivity and charismatic personality, you knew that every round of golf together was going to be a memorable experience and something to look forward to.” – Shane Cowan
“I’m so fortunate to be able to call Sue family. She made everyone’s life better just by being a part of it. She is one of the most hardworking and caring women I know.” – Sarah Steinborn
“She was the best role model I could have ever asked for. She is one of the most strong-willed and open-minded people people I’ve ever known. I’m so glad so many others saw the same.” – Jack Wiese
“Some of my favorite memories with Sue will always be of us skiing together or going to the annual auto show when I was young.” – Chuck Hilman
“Sue always made you feel included and accepted. Sue would always be the first person to look up vegan-friendly food places or arts activities to do when we traveled. She always made me – and everyone else – feel so special.” – Caitlin Cowan
