Suzanne Whaling

Suzanne "Suzy" Kelly Whaling

1940-2013 Suzanne "Suzy" Kelly Whaling, born on September 9, 1940 and died on September 27, 2013 after a hard-fought and courageous battle with depression. Suzy was a rare woman. She was a vibrant wife, mother, grandmother and friend whose limitless enthusiasm, infinite energy, and genuine interest in others was a truly extraordinary gift to all who knew her. She was 100% engaged in anything and everything that mattered to everyone she loved. She made every single person she knew whether for a few minutes or for a lifetime feel like they mattered. For Suzy, they genuinely did, as she sincerely wanted happiness and good fortune for all in her orbit. The ultimate fan and supporter, she never missed a chance to cheer on her children, and later her grandchildren. She created homes that were the active center of her children and their friends' lives. Her door was always opened, her refrigerator always stocked, and there always was room for another to join the dinner table. Suzy was fun, deeply loyal, and always positive. She was competitive and relentlessly curious. Suzy was a knock-out, both inside and out. But most important of all, Suzy had fierce and boundless love for her family and many friends. It was matched only by theirs for her. She is survived by Tony, her husband of 47 years; her children Collins (Sam) Baker, Sally, and Mark (Carolyn) Whaling, and her five grandchildren: Will and Jake Baker, Caden, Lilly and Beau Whaling, her beloved Reilly and pre-deceased by her son Tyler. In honor of Suzy's life, donations may be made to the Tyler Whaling Colgate University Scholarship Fund. "She will make the face of heaven shine so fine that all the world will be in love with night." William Shakespeare
