Susie Rae Gelo, 29, of Belfast and her unborn baby boy, Thaddius Royce Springer, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018.

Susie was a loving mother who was passionate about culinary arts. She worked as a CNA at Tall Pines and loved spending time with friends and family. She enjoyed listening to loud music and cracking jokes, which were always followed by her beautiful and contagious laugh.

Susie is survived by a large, loving family: her mother Jean; father Raymond and stepmother Wendy; sister Renee and her husband Josh; step-sisters Hannah and Shelby; her beautiful daughters Jasmine and Addy; boyfriend Chris and his children Jaxon and Camden; nieces Chassidy and Elise; nephews Caleb, Hunter, Ezra and Jace; and many special family members.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, March 3, at Riposta Funeral Home in Belfast. In lieu of flowers, her family asks for donations to be made to the American Diabetes Association in Susie's name.
