Sukon “Sukie” Panich, 69, of Milton, Ga., formerly of South Boston, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2013 succumbing to injuries from an automobile accident.

Sukie loved spending time with her grandchildren, James and Andrew. She was actively involved in their upbringing and enjoyed watching them in their various sports and activities.
