She made her way to New York City in 1981, and relocated to East Liverpool in 1984, where she was well known as the owner and operator of the former Hunan Chinese Restaurant on Sixth Street in downtown East Liverpool.

Following the restaurant’s closing, Sue worked as a packaging operator at Marsh-Bellofram from 2005-2016. She also spent a great deal of time at the East Liverpool YMCA.

Sue was a faithful member of Beechwood Free Methodist Church.

She is survived by her son, Bin Zhou, and his wife, Nan, of East Liverpool; a granddaughter, Angela Zhou, and a grandson, Kevin Cheung. There is also a sister, Wei Xuan Yan and a brother, Zi Jiang Yan, both of Taipei, Taiwan, as well as five cousins she treasured: Xiu Lan Yan, Mei Xing Shi, Mei Hao Shi, Mei Heng Shi, and John Yan.

Friends may visit Saturday at the Dawson Funeral Home where the family will be present from 3 to 5 p.m. Sue’s pastor, Rev. Norman Eckert, will conduct a funeral service at 5 p.m. at the funeral home.
