January 29, 1931 - June 2, 2016
Assunta "Sue" Klawitter (Palumbo) - 85 In the early hours of Thursday, June 2, 2016, Sue, age 85, passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her loving son Emil, brother Alfred, and sister Fran. She had been a resident of Millville most of her life, and recently in Mullica Hill. Born in Brooklyn, NY on January 29, 1931 to Alfonso and Angelina Palumbo (Lapelosa), in the years of the Great Depression, times were not always easy, but it was no secret that family was always first and of utmost importance. She was the eldest of 4 children. Sue met her husband Emil whom she married at St. Francis de Paola in Brooklyn NY on October 21, 1957. They moved to New Jersey, and started a family of their own. Sue put her whole heart into everything she did in life, and her family meant everything. She worked for Wheaton Industries in Millville, NJ and retired on July 1, 1994, and was a member of St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Millville, NJ. She is survived by her son Emil Klawitter and wife Colleen; brother Alfred Palumbo and wife Pat, sister Fran McLaughlin and husband Joseph; son-in-law Robert Sutton; grandchildren Heather Hettinger (Sutton) and husband CJ , Krista Sutton, and Tara Klawitter; great grandchildren Brayden and Hayley Hettinger; and many other loving family members. Sue was predeceased by her parents Alfonso and Angelina, husband Emil Klawitter, daughter Susan Sutton (Klawitter), brother Artie Palumbo and great-grandchildren Colten and Austin Hettinger. Sue loved reading, crossword puzzles, and most of all, spending time with the ones she loved. She was the "matriarch" to the family, and loved everyone unconditionally, and had an impact on anyone that crossed her path. She will be deeply missed by her loved ones but her legacy will forever live on. "Fight nice" she would say with a smile on her face. She was the sunshine and joy to so many. Burial will be private. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray. You'll never know dear how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away." -Jimmie Davis Arrangements are under the direction of Christy Funeral Home, Millville.
