Suter, Robert  
Robert J. Suter Robert J. "Skip" Suter, 71, passed away on May 29, 2015 after an eight-year battle with kidney cancer. He was born in Annapolis, Maryland, the son of Robert L. and Dorothy M. Suter. Skip lived in Tallahassee for 33 years, having worked both as a trust officer at Barnett Bank and as a shoe store owner. He loved casino gaming, sports, cars, antiques, and leisure activities, especially fishing. Diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer in 2007, Skip exhibited the physical and emotional strength to fight the disease, defying the predicted five-year life span doctors provided. He persevered during his final years, never complaining about the effects of the prescribed poisons coursing through his blood. His advisors at MD Anderson Cancer Center used aggressive surgeries and cutting edge medicines to keep the cancer at bay and to prolong his life beyond what anyone expected. Both before and after his cancer diagnosis, Skip was quietly compassionate, taking care to help those around him in need. His support and loyalty to his family serves as an example to those he left behind. Skip was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Pat, along with his best friend, Ron Villella; he rejoins them both roughly a year after their passing. He is survived by: son, Thomas (Tommy) Suter and wife, Amy, and grandsons: Robert, Drew, and Conrad of Tallahassee; son, Robert (Rob) Suter and wife, Sarah, and granddaughter Anabel of Gainesville. Extended family survivors include: brother Lou Suter and sister Mary Bittel. At Skip's request, there will be no immediate memorial service held. The family will hold a private memorial at a future date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center online.

Smith, Beverly  
Beverly Smith Beverly Jane Smith passed away on May 22, 2015. She is survived by her children Wallace Smith, Jr. and wife Tina, Beryl Deremigio and husband Tom, Barbara Anderson and husband Tom, Linda Parker, David Smith and wife Rolga, Julie Smith and partner Brian, Kim Thomas, many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sister Gladys Daire, and brother Raymond Brown and wife Lily. Her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and cousins were always in her heart, as well as all of her friends. Beverly led a life filled with adventure, love, laughter, family and friends. Born and raised in Minnesota, her family moved to Port Arthur, Texas where she met and fell in love with a dashing, blue eyed U.S. Air Force aviator. Together they traveled, raising children along the way. She was a warrior's wife, and kept the home fires burning and the family strong. When their life together ended, she moved to Tallahassee to begin a new chapter. She worked for the Florida Department of Health over 30 years, retired, then got bored with retirement and went back to work with DOH through a private firm until her passing. Her "work family" will remember her as the office grandma who was always ready to listen, give advice, and always willing to help. As all of her children were grown and scattered across the country and the world, her co-workers became her children. She dearly loved her family and friends. She was always willing to open her heart to those in need. To that end, she opened her heart and home to Kim Thomas, who became her daughter and our sister. Her adventures took her to Japan, Germany, Canada, California, New York, Cape Cod, Atlantic City, Florida, Minnesota, Ohio and Texas but she was always happy when she came back home to Tallahassee. Her love for the city and the Florida State University Seminoles was evident in her support of the team. She held season tickets and never missed a home game, rain or shine. She was a friend to all and a role model to many. Beverly was a strong, independent woman and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. A memorial service to celebrate Beverly's life with her friends and family will be held on Saturday, May 30th at 3PM at Culley's MeadowWood Funeral Home located at 1737 Riggins Road, Tallahassee, FL 32308. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the National Kidney Foundation, American Heart Association, ASPCA, or charity of your choice.
