    I met Suzie when I joined Job's Daughters in 1962. She was a kind and thoughtful person, always putting other's needs and desires ahead of her own. I remember going to outdoor Easter Sunrise services, where we would sing " Nearer My God to Thee", while shivering under our white robes. From now on, whenever I hear that song, I will remember you, Suzie. Rest in Peace, dear one.

    Suzan - We will always remember her as a fun and loving person. Our families had many good times together. She also was the secretary for our Union for several years and was a proficient and excellent worker. May God bless her soul and grant peace to her and her loved ones. Carl

    I just learned of Suzie 's passing today. My prayers are with Suzie and her family. I will miss her greatly!
    We are humbled by Suzie's friendship to our family over the years, and her kind deeds are just one reason Suzie will leave a void in our hearts, that will slowly fill over time with precious memories.
    God's Love to all of Suzie's family.
