Marilynn Sue Klopp ("Sue"), 77, of Walnut Bottom fell asleep in the Lord, Tuesday May 18, 2021 in the Chambersburg Hospital. She was born December 1, 1943 in Chambersburg. Sue was a daughter of the late Vernon E. and Dorothy M. (Gephart) Dyer.

She was a member of Life Center Church in Harrisburg. Sue was an English teacher as well as an ESL teacher for many years. God gave her a missionary's heart, and she often spoke of her desire to teach English and the Christian Faith in China. Though she never made it to China her vocation as an English teacher put her in contact with many foreign students, from the children of ambassadors in New York City to the inmates of Dauphin County Prison to refugees from China and Vietnam. She treated every student as a friend.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one sister, Patricia Dyer.

Sue is survived by her husband of 45 years, Eric Mitchell Klopp, four children, Christopher A. Klopp and his wife Keziah of Beech Creek, David E. Klopp and his wife Katherine of Chambersburg, Matthew V. Klopp and his wife Katie of Camp Hill and Jennifer L. Ettinger and her husband Brian of Lemoyne, one sister Judith A. Dyer of San Francisco, CA and one cousin Kathleen Haberkost of Lebanon. She had ten grandchildren whom she loved very much.

Funeral services will be held Monday, May 24, 2021 at 2 p.m. at Messiah United Methodist Church, Shippensburg with Mr. Christopher Klopp and Rev. Vinny Sakore officiating. Burial will be in the Spring HIll Cemetery. A viewing will be held one hour prior to the services at the church.

Only knew the Dyer family when I was in HS in Shippensburg. Her dad was the HS Orchestra leader as well as my violin teacher. Sue, as I knew her was the closest to me in age. I believe Patricia was the eldest & Judy the youngest. They were all in the orchestra & all were redheads. I didn't know she had been a teacher and I'm sure a very good one. I have a friend who is an ESL teacher also and that takes a talent that not all possess. Condolences to her family. Connie Clark Walker, Pensacola Florida
