Of late, an avid knitter and potter, Suzanne had many interests in her life and across her life. She loved picking out and giving gifts; especially giving books to kids, related or not. She loved picking out plants for her gardens, telling David where to plant them, and enjoying the results as they grew. She was once a weaver and many still enjoy the gifts she created. She loved traveling, especially to Door County, Wisconsin and historic places around the country. She loved her time as a teachers aid at the Conyers Learning Center in Rolling Meadows and loved working with the kids there. She loved music, especially live music. She loved being with (and partying with) her extended families and all of her many friends and we will all miss that and her terribly.
Suzanne was the loving wife of David C. Schlott; mother of Zachary (Amanda) Schlott, soon to be grandmother of Landon Glenn, and puppy-mother to Arlo; sister of Elizabeth Nicolai, Nancy (Louis) Holian, George Henning, Glenn (Amy) Henning, and Guy (Kerry) Henning; aunt of Fred (Lindy) Nicolai, Matthew (Patricia) Nicolai, Tim Holian, John Holian, Erin (John) Schmeling, Daniel (Vicki) Holian, Dane (Alyssa) Henning, Maggie (John) Henning, Grant Henning, Elaina Henning, Julia Henning, Julia Clarke, Eve Clarke, Harrison (Eli) Kuykendall, JT (Marissa) Kuykendall, Quinn Ourada, Thomas Ourada, Ella Holiday, Isabelle Sobin, Ryland Sobin, Emily (Michael) Wenc, Olivia Repenning; loving grandaunt and great grandaunt to too many grand and great grand nieces and nephews to list them all.
She was preceded in death by her parents Raymond and Margaret Henning.
