I was Suzy's dog sitter when she had Baron and Duchess. I'm glad I got to see Suzy last summer and I am sad to see she is gone. Suzy and I also had many fond memories of Betty Adelstein. I hope they are having a good time together in heaven!

We were saddened to learn of Susy’s passing as we had no idea that she was ill. Susy was a dear - and beautiful - friend (both inside and out)! Susy was a genuine and caring person - the type that you could pick up a conversation - wherever and whenever you left off! Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are extended to Susy’s family! Susy introduced us in 1981 - she will forever hold a very special place in our hearts!

My condolences to Suzy’s family. I am heartbroken to hear of her passing. It was an honor to work with Suzy at Hospice. Most of all it was a pleasure to be her friend. What a wonderful, sweet, honest, smart, loving, exceptional woman. In the late 90’s we spent many nights hanging out with Bella and sitting in Suzy’s hot tub. You will be forever missed my friend. May you rest in eternal peace.

Suzy was one of my favorite nurses while I worked for Hospice. Her “down home” wisdom was appreciated by her patients and her sense of humor was contagious. Suzy was one of the most honest and straight forward people I’ve known. She’ll make God smile while using that red head humor!
