Jasper, Suzie J.  
Suzie J. Jasper, 74, passed away on April 28, 2016 after she tired of dealing with COPD and lugging around an oxygen concentrator everywhere she went. She was born a "blue baby" on June 18, 1941 in an Ozark Mountain cotton field to her late share-cropper parents, Cleo Anderson and Mary Ellen Fisher. Immediately disliking her given name, Johnnie Sue, she decided to live so she could move to California and legally change it. Suzie leaves behind an eclectic mix of collected family, forever changed by her wit, candor, and utter lack of singing ability. Suzie was Queen of Home Remedies and knew just about everything there was to know about the uses of white vinegar and gardening. The local worm population claims she made the best compost in three counties. She had an unhealthy addiction to fine china and collectible dolls, both of which she displayed proudly on the walls of her Acampo home. Suzie enjoyed cooking elaborate Sunday dinners for her friends and family, after which she would bribe the more artistic guests to sing, dance, or recite poetry as entertainment. After careful deliberation by the family, Suzie was allowed to participate in the singing only if she used the kazoo purchased for the occasion. Suzie left behind a pair of red stilettos (which she bought after being wheelchair bound), a plethora of magazines, and 2 for 1 sandwich coupons. She loved learning about the history of words but preferred using the four letter variety. Saturday nights were reserved for Lawrence Welk reruns, and if someone called while it was on, they'd need to be prepared to hear her sing along without the kazoo. She would always tell the truth, even when it hurt. She loved fiercely but was not afraid to tell someone of her disapproval, causing many eye rolls from her daughter and grandchildren. Above all, she was generous. There wasn't a baby in her 50 mile radius that didn't own a hand-knitted cap and slipper set. If it was in her power to give, she would do it. She considered it her personal quest to help everyone build self-confidence, whether they wanted to or not. Suzie will be sorely missed by her remaining family, especially her only daughter, Deborah Maroulis, her son-in-law, John Maroulis, and her grandchildren, Rocky Jasper, Megan Wharry, and Matthew Wharry. She used every visit and phone call to tell them that they were loved and that they could do anything they wanted as long as they worked hard. Suzie lived her life in a way that would have made Frank Sinatra jealous. She definitely did it her way. Suzie's life will be celebrated on Friday, May 6th at Donahue Funeral Home at 9am. She insisted on wearing her Bayside Beauty tiara and cowboy boots. There will be a private committal at Lodi Memorial Cemetery where she will be reunited with her late husband, William Jasper. To honor her generous spirit, and in lieu of flowers, please donate to Lodi House, her favorite local charity that helps displaced women and children rebuild their lives.
