Elizabeth Lou “Bette” Szuch, age 83, of Niles passed away peacefully on Monday, April 15, 2024. She was born on September 15, 1940, to the late George Takach and mother, Genevieve Molek. Bette was a graduate of Champion High School. In 1958, Bette and her late husband, Louis, were married in Warren where they raised their two children. They were married for 62 years.

She was employed by Howland Local Schools as a secretary at Howland Springs Elementary for 21 years, retiring in 2003. Some of her most cherished moments were spent with the children, staff, and parents at the school. Many special friends were made along the way.

She was an avid crafter who enjoyed Stampin’ UP. Her other hobbies included gardening, traveling, and decorating, especially with antiques. She also served on committees for Trumbull Town Hall. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and friend who lit up a room with her smile. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family. Her family will miss her love, laughter, and spunk.
