I knew Suzanne from Martiz Research. We used to sit at lunch together sometimes when I wandered over to Anita, Cathy and Suzanne. I remember Suzanne coming in with her crocheting...saying how she needed to get her "nieces skirt" finished before her birthday, or how she had to finish the shawl for her friend. Many times I came into work and admired her earrings or some type of jewerly and she would tell me that she made it herself. I was very impressed!

I know that Suzanne worried so much about her daughter and only wished the best for her...she would roll her eyes and sigh...then comment on how her daughter is could see the concern and love she had for her daughter in her face as she spoke of her.

Suzanne also worried and cared for her mother deeply. Often she would talk about what her mom and different things for example, what her mom wanted for dinner the night before, or what they were going to make in a few nights. She talked about her mom quite often.

Suzanne also had a special male friend that she spoke of often...never quite knew what that relationship was about, however when she talked of knew it was a special one. He obviously held a spot in her heart...whoever you were always there for her and she seemed to have appreciated it.

Family get together's were something that Suzanne treasured...even though she spoke of them too far in between...she would talk about how they were going to fix big meals and have everyone over.

Suzanne had a huge heart...I would joke with her and she'd roll her eyes at me! She always had a down to earth personality and would give her opinion if asked whether is was what you wanted to hear, or not. If you liked something of hers, she would not hesitate to say "Here, you can have it." She HATED to have her picture taken!!!!

Suzanne held a special spot in my heart. She came and sat at my brother's showing for a long time...just letting her presence be known, even though I was traveling around the room trying to talk to everyone...she was there if I needed her. I sort of felt like Suzanne was like a big sister, or aunt to me...she will definitely be thought of often with a warm heart on this end.

I remember laughing and trying to lighten the mood when she was using her cane at work...I called her "gimpy" and laughed about it...said it a couple more times for some reason or another and she gave me this look, and said "Alriiight!" Haha...Suzanne could hold a stone cold face, even when you knew that she was smiling deep inside!

I am going to miss Suzanne...she had a lot on her plate and I hope that now she is able to find the peace and rest that she so deserves for being the special person she was!

May peace and comfort be there for the family...and know that she loved each of you and spoke of you all often! Suzanne is definitely going to be missed by all who knew her...she was a tough cookie with a heart of gold!

Rest peacefully, deserve it...hopefully they have crocheting in Heaven!!!

Dear Patty and the rest of Suzanne's family,

Many loving prayers and thoughts of support and care to each of you. I will be thinking of you as you share these last times with Suzanne in memories, laughter, shared love, and deep sorrow. Since distance does not permit my attendance at the mortuary or the funeral liturgy I am sending my love through this message. My dear Patty you are always in my heart and from what I read about Suzanne in the previous condolence message, I can only imagine the emptiness this loss leaves in your heart and in that of your dear Mom. May God give you the strength needed to face the days ahead and may your loving compassion and support for one another sustain you in the weeks that follow. I will add you to our prayer list here in the Motherhouse and thus give you the gift of support from all of the Sisters here -- from all over the world.

With love and prayerful support,
Sister Jaculin
Rome, Italy

Suzanne.............Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing..........And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb............And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance. [from "The Prophet" - Kahlil Gibran]
Suzanne........I hope you was a PLEASURE to have known you.
