Elizabeth Anne Suereth, Ellie, age 14, died Tuesday, March 29, 2022 at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, three months after a cancer diagnosis. Ellie was born April 16, 2007 in Columbia, Maryland to parents Sarah and Josh Suereth.

Ellie was a freshman and honors student at Seneca Valley Intermediate High School. She was a life-long lover of literature; she particularly enjoyed works dealing in fairy tales and myths. Ellie liked a quote from Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer that she held to in tough times: “One day isn’t your whole life…A day is just a day.” Through many challenges in her life, Ellie was relentlessly cheerful; recently a doctor admired her “pleasant stubbornness.”

Ellie is survived by her sister, Cora, who is 13, and her parents. Ellie also leaves behind grandparents Ron and Denise Fisher, and Alison Wick; aunts and uncles Kristin (Cory) Vogan, Amanda (Alex) Stewart, Andrew Wick, Daniel Wick, Herb (Michelle) Suereth, and Cali (Matt) Pyles; cousins Lawrence, Lucas, Luci, Levi, Joey, Ava, Maya, Natalie, Quinn, Simon, Maeve, and Jackson. Many other relatives, dear friends, and a kind piano teacher will also miss and remember Ellie.

Ellie loved unicorns and all things pink and sparkly. She loved music, and was a practiced piano and violin player. She loved board games, travel, and the Food Network. Ellie loved animals, especially horses and her dog Skye, whom she adopted after a successful years-long letter campaign to her parents. Ellie loved spending time with her friends.

Ellie’s parents wish to thank the staff at Children’s Hospital for their care.

Family and friends are welcome on Friday April 8, 2022 from 5-7 pm and Saturday, April 9, 2022 from 10-11:45 am at Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry, 2678 Rochester Road, Cranberry Twp. A Memorial Service will be held at Noon at the funeral home.
