M. Suzanne Butler Rank, affectionately known as ‘Shiny’, went peacefully to heaven on June 3rd, surrounded by her loving family.
Shiny was a graduate of Minoa High School. She married Robert Rank, also from Minoa, in 1957. She enjoyed many years of bus driving for the ESM school district. In her retirement, she was a devoted and loving dogsitter. She cherished the friendship of all her dog and cat families through the years.
Shiny was best known for her infinite love and kindness. Her love was pure and present. Her laughter and smiles filled every space she was in. She was the best cheerleader you could have. According to her grandchildren ‘EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A SHINY!’
Shiny was predeceased by her beloved parents, Virginia and Hugh Butler; her brothers, Donald and Francis; her infant son, Joseph; and her loving companion, Jerry Carhart.
She is survived by her brothers, Walt (Mary) Butler, Henry (Mary) Butler; and her sister, Nancy (Bernard) Costello. She is also survived by her daughters, Juleen Rank (Jeff), Virginia Wood (Andrew), and Nancy Towne; her beloved grandchildren, Elizabeth and Sean Towne, Sarah and Christopher Wood, Cory and Kali Scanlon; and many nieces and nephews who she adored.
The family would like to thank the extraordinary staff at Iroquois Nursing Home for loving our mom and so beautifully recognizing her ‘Shine’.
Calling hours will be from 4 to 7 pm on Friday, June 7th at R.H. Schepp & Son Minoa Chapel, 6530 Schepps Corners Road, Minoa. Mass will be at 11am on Saturday, June 8 at St. Mary’s Church, 401 N Main St, Minoa.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to Helping Hounds Rescue, Dewitt, NY, in mom’s honor.

To all of Sue's family, My sincerest condolences to you. I have to tell you that We were good friends in high school. Of course, how could you not be a good friend of Sue's. We graduated in the class of 1954 in Minoa and that was a small class that was more like a family.
Over the years, we marry, have children, grandchildren but still our memories of high school and our little family there remain. Sitting here smiling thinking of a great friend and Senior Ball, Sr Play and tears at graduation and the commencement of our lives outside that precious family of ours over 65 years ago. She was always fun and a good person. I probably am going on to long with this but I regret not getting to see her but only a few times. I moourn her passing for all of you and for Jerry. Please share my condolences with him.

I remember when she first hired out as a bus driver and I remember when she retired. Sue was a wonderful bus driver and a great friend. She was also the boss's sister so I had to treat her kind LOL we love and miss you Susie! Rest in peace.
