Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • Suzy was my Aunt but a year younger, so I never really thought of her as an Aunt but more of a sister and friend. We spend time together growing up in the summer when my family would visit the area, still remember the good times. Suzy was always so full of life, enjoying most everything. When we got older we raised our families than started celebrating our birthdays in October, getting together for what we called the month of Sue and Linda. I’ll miss those outings.
      My pastor said “the healthiest relationships look out for the other person in all realms” this was so Suzy. She looked after so many, family and friends. I’m going to miss you Aunt Suzy I’ll drink a toast (rum and diet coke) to you on our birthday’s until we can celebrate together again.
      To her family and friends May God enbrace you with his comforting arms during this difficult time. Love to all, Linda
