Suzanne was a very loving wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved deeply and always welcomed anyone to the table. She usually referred to herself as “Grandma” to anyone we introduced her to and always made all those around her feel welcomed and loved.

Suzanne was known for her delicious meals and always making sure everyone was filled up… and then some. She had a huge heart and a charitable spirit, and always made sure those who were alone always had a welcoming place to go.

She loved her family unconditionally with all her heart and was always your biggest cheerleader and support.

Suzanne will be forever missed by her family and friends. A Celebration of her life will be held on Monday, July 8, 2024, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (8 Keast Way, Red Deer, Alberta) at 2:00 PM. The Celebration of Life will be followed by lunch and many shared memories.
