Susan R (Redington) Heath

March 18, 1937 ~ December 11, 2017 (age 80)

SUSAN R. HEATH of Medford, NJ passed away peacefully on December 11th, 2017.  She was 80.  Born in Philadelphia, PA, she is the daughter of the late Harvey and Adele Redington, and has resided at Medford Leas for over 10 years, moving here from Moorestown, NJ.  A graduate of Ridgewood High School and Goucher College, one of the Seven Sisters, Sue majored in English and loved writing and editing.  Her diverse career included work in libraries, association management, and Quaker administration.  As a devoted community volunteer, she served on boards and in direct service with groups such as the League of Women Voters, Moorestown Ecumenical Neighborhood Development, Contact of Burlington County, Pastural Care Newsletter, and La Leche League.  She is the wife of Dudley D. Heath (Sandy) and celebrated 60 years of marriage with him in September.  Her daughters, Suellen, Jenny, and Lisa, were her pride and glory, and they will miss her high expectations and unflagging support.  Dama Sue’s humor and sharp ears are traits that awed and entertained her grandchildren Becky and Sophie Riffkin, Cole and Beth Pollard, Sam, Zach, and Luke Dainton.  Her siblings, Jim and Dell Redington, were at the heart of extended family gatherings at Sue’s favorite sunset spot on Long Beach Island.  Her family will remember her feistiness, love of reading, needlework, and amazing one-liners.  She could be counted on to have knowledge and an opinion about a wide variety of current events.  A surprise for many may be that Sue enjoyed square dancing and had a valuable baseball card collection.  Relatives and friends are invited to her Memorial Service on Sunday at 2:00 PM in the Theater at Medford Leas, 1 Medford Leas Way, Medford, NJ.  Funeral arrangements are by the BRADLEY & STOW FUNERAL HOME of Medford, NJ.  In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to the League of Women Voters, 204 W. State Street, Trenton, NJ  08608.     (
