Suzanne was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her two boys, she embraced
each and every moment with them. She would give them the whole world if they asked, her role
as mother was one near and dear to her heart. Her role as ‘Aunt Zanne’ was one of her favorites.
If you walked through her front door she treated you as one of her own. Suzanne always made
sure everybody was fed and never let you go hungry. She was crazy, outgoing, fun-loving, and
full of contagious energy. There are so many traits that Suzanne possessed, it’s hard to name only
a few. And if you challenged her to a dance off, you were sure to lose. She was the most loving
person you could have had the pleasure of knowing. Her heart was truly one of made of gold.
Suzanne was apart of so many memories for many people. She cherished her time as a cheer
coach to so many amazing girls, including her own niece. If you needed a laugh or a cry,
Suzanne was there to give you just that. She wanted to be a part of anything and everything those
around her deemed important. While she was at it, you could always count on her to take a foot
