Suzanne Mossman Obituary

Suzanne S. Mossman 83, of Bakersfield, California died Wednesday August 3, 2016. She is survived by her husband Malcolm Mossman and children, Scott, Christie, Linda and grandchildren Kate, Eric, Bryan, Samuel, Miles and Camilla. Malcolm and "Susie" were married in 1952, and celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary this past July.

She was raised and went to school in Madison, Wisconsin, with her parents Emmett and Betty and sisters Sarita and Santha. She was an Alpha Z Delta at Coe College, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin.

Susie was first and foremost an amazing homemaker. She made good friends everywhere she lived because she was such a good friend herself. In addition, she worked as an interior decorator, in Colorado and California. She was very dedicated to her family and friends through work and giving back to her community. She was involved in bible studies, teacher assistance, Young Life leadership, Nutcracker Sweet Cakes, Woman's Petroleum Club, Crisis Pregnancy Center, Teen Challenge, numerous church choirs, P.E.O., Play Readers, the French Shop and the Red Door Furniture store.

Susie played the piano and flute, was very well read, a painter of acrylic/oil/watercolor landscapes, and an avid Bridge player all of her life. She was known for loving her family, being a "prayer warrior" for those close to her and even those whom she only knew by name, her infectious laugh, her hidden chocolate stash, homemade peppermint ice cream and hot fudge sauce, and popcorn!

A memorial service will be held Wednesday August 17 at First Presbyterian Church, 1705 17th Street, from 2:30 to 3:30 with a reception from 3:30 to 5:30 following at the church. Memorial donations may be made to in honor of Susie. We miss her, love her, and are blessed to have had her in our lives for as long as we did. We are comforted to know that she is no longer in the Parkinson's pain and is in heaven with Jesus now.
