Suzanne Virginia van Zutphen

PLEASANT VALLEY - Suzanne Virginia (Mann) van Zutphen, age 53, passed away on July 21, 2014, at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, Poughkeepsie, NY with her loving family by her side. Suzanne was born September 1, 1960, the fourth daughter of Jean (Cady) and John W. Mann, Jr. A lifelong resident of Pleasant Valley, she graduated from Arlington High School in 1978.

Suzanne was known for her strength, courage, and compassion. She stood as a beacon of light, love, and hope for everyone around her and touched the hearts of all who knew her. Whether she was fishing on the lake, walking her dogs in the park, snowmobiling with her husband, spending time with her grandson, or just being there as confidant and friend, she did so with an open heart and a selfless devotion to all of her friends and family whom she loved so dearly.

Survivors include her husband, Charles van Zutphen, of Pleasant Valley, NY; children Nicole van Zutphen and Michael van Zutphen, of Pleasant Valley, NY; beloved grandson Colin van Zutphen; sisters Beverly Doppel and husband John, of Pleasant Valley, NY, Terri Cronk and husband "Butch," of Pleasant Valley, NY, Laurie Dean and husband Jim, of Poughkeepsie, NY; mother-in-law Patricia Stevens, of Verbank, NY and sister-in-law Mary Hottenrott, of Westmont NJ; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and her loyal dog Mandy.

Calling hours will be from 5-8 PM with a service scheduled for 7:45 PM on Friday, July 25, 2014 at Allen Funeral Home, 1605 Main St, Pleasant Valley, NY. The family asks that donations be made in her memory in lieu of flowers to the Dutchess County SPCA, 636 Violet Ave., Hyde Park, NY 12538.
