Suzy was very special to so many people and the community of Three Rivers. She was helpful with our renovation of the Riviera Theatre, sharing vivid memories of growing up there, as so many of us did. Everyone who knew Suzy was blessed by her dedication and friendship.

Suzy was an amazing lady! For anyone who taught at Three Rivers Community Schools, Suzy quickly became one of your best friends....there was never a financial or insurance question that Suzy couldn't answer. Suzy and I also shared a very special love for the ARTS which continued after her retirement through the Carnegie Center for the Arts. Suzy, I will miss your warm and friendly smile very much. My love and prayers go out to your family.
