Caroline "Sue" Maeyens Life Story

Mrs. Caroline “Sue” Maeyens, 74, of Elkhart, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, surrounded by loved ones at Elkhart General Hospital. She was born on April 5, 1948, in South Bend to the late Donald and Narcia (Petry) Litteral. She is survived and missed by her loving husband, Terry Maeyens; and her five children David (Wendy), Rob (Connie), Gena Lane, of Elkhart, Don (Jamie) Tubicsak of Cassopolis, Michigan, and Tom (Dawn) Frantz of Clarion, Iowa; Brother Tom (Elaine) Litteral of Lowry Crossing, Texas; numerous grand and great grandchildren; and a host of loving extended family and good friends. She is preceded in death by a brother, Danny Litteral and a sister, Patty Litteral.

In accordance with her wishes, no immediate services have been planned and cremation is to take place under the direction of Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart.

Everyone who knew Sue felt her big heart and loving nature.  After working many years in production and quality control, she retired to enjoy a more quiet life.  She was an avid reader and loved watching golf, the Dallas Cowboys, the Fighting Irish, and the Chicago Cubs.  She could often be found sitting in her recliner, enjoying a game or two with one of her two cats or her dog in her lap.

She was also a huge fan of family gatherings, a time she was grateful to connect with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and their families. These gatherings were one of the biggest joys in her life and it seemed like no family gathering ever passed without a euchre game or tournament breaking out.

She was an ardent animal lover and spent a lot of time with her “fur babies” and watching the hummingbirds and cardinals flutter in and around the beautiful roses that grew out side of her front door.  Not only that, but you better believe that she always made sure all of the birds and squirrels had an ample supply of feed available and she always had bread on hand for the family of ducks that took up residence in the creek at the edge of her yard.  She was always amazed at the level of vibrant beauty that the animals and flowers brought to her home.

Sue was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandma, friend, and neighbor. She always had a smile and tried to give the best of herself whenever she could.
