Susan K Grow, age 77 of North Kingstown, Rhode Island and formerly of Eldorado, Ohio died Sunday, February 4, 2024, at her residence. Born on July 17, 1946, in Richmond Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Raymond and Martha (Crawford) Kimmel.  She was a devoted wife and mother of her two children.  An alumna of Monroe High School in Preble County, Ohio, she graduated Summa Cum Laude from West Virginia State College in 1984.  Susan held various positions in accounting, culminating as Financial Controller for Lykins Oil Companies in Milford, Ohio.  In retirement, she enjoyed traveling with her husband and served as Treasurer of their retirement community in Ladson, South Carolina.  She especially enjoyed travel to England, Ireland, Thailand, Alaska, and many cruises throughout the Caribbean.  In Thailand, she was both thrilled and surprised when a baby elephant wrapped her trunk around Sue’s shoulders and gave her a hug.
