Austin, Susannah Margaret Lupton - Countryside  
Susannah Margaret Lupton Austin Susannah Margaret Lupton Austin was born in Detroit, Michigan in August of 1917. At the age of five, her parents Harry Holmes and Mary Haner Lupton returned to Gallipolis, OH to care for her aged grandmother. Susannah attended Lincoln Elementary School and Gallia Academy High School, graduating in 1934. She received her BA from Maryville College, Maryville, TN in June, 1939. Between 1939 and 1940 she attended Ohio University where she received her BS degree in Education. Subsequently, for three years, she taught English, French, and Home Economics at Midvale Consolidated H.S. in Midvale, OH. She completed an M.A. in Educational Administration from Northern Illinois University in 1972. On August 1, 1942 Susannah was married to Harold Garwood Austin in Lincoln, NE. by Dr. Leland, Clergy Emeritus of the University of Nebraska. The wedding brunch was hosted by Mrs. Morning, widow of the third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. It was the first wedding of a serviceman in Lincoln. In June 1943 Harold was assigned to an Army Air Base in England where he would remain for the next 3 1/2 years. Susannah moved to Chicago where she was employed as Assistant to the Comptroller of George Williams College. Harold rejoined Susannah in December of 1946. After a short period with Chicago Biological Supply, she gave birth to her first son John Harold, and three years later to James Garwood. As a member of United Church of Hyde Park, she was active in the Mother's Club, acting as President prior to moving to Crerar Presbyterian on the South Side. In August of 1956, Julie Ann joined her brothers. Two years later, the family moved to LaGrange. As a member of First Presbyterian Church in La Grange, she served as a deacon, elder, choir mother, and leader of the Junior High Sunday School. For twenty-three years she taught sixth grade at Spring Avenue School. She retired in 1983 and began volunteering at La Grange Memorial Hospital in 1984 for more than 20 years. Susannah was an avid reader and enjoyed keeping current with world news each day. She passed away peacefully in December 2016. Susannah is survived by her three children, John, Jim, and Julie; six grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. God has blessed our family with the ability to give each other strength, and so much of our strength has come from all who have known us and shared their love and support over the years. The family will have a private gathering for remembrance and reflection. Interment will take place in Ohio. Arrangements entrusted to Hallowell & James Funeral Home, Countryside.
