Suzy’s passions revolved around family-friends-travel and her extraordinary love for animals, mainly cats. She took pride in her job at Pan Am Airlines then transitioned into a career as a corporate travel agent until retirement. She enjoyed the benefits of traveling, of which, Tahiti became her number one destination. Suzy also had a strong love for football. She took pleasure in putting on one of her favorite sweatshirts and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to her consistent and caring team at Lutheran Home. Specifically, those who brought her considerable laughs and joy on a daily basis. We will be FOREVER grateful!

Rest in peace Aunt Suzy – your new life without pain … We love you!
