OBIT SueSpahrDemling

August 20, 1955 to January 10, 2018

Our beloved Susan was called home to the Lord on January 10, 2018.

A Los Altos resident for 30 years, Sue was born in Hollywood, CA and raised in Sunnyvale where she was a devoted member of Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church. She was a shining light to all who knew her and the center of the universe for so many. Sue will be remembered for her keen wit, love of life, and radiant beauty both inside and out. Her friends knew her as someone who listened with great empathy and thoughtfulness. She cherished her family above all. Sue you are in our hearts forever!

She is survived by her husband, David Aveni, daughter Ashley Trujillo, son-in-law Cion Trujillo, her grandchildren Cion II and Lola, stepson Ryan Aveni and stepdaughter Chanel Aveni.
