Feb. 3, 1951 - June 22, 2020 Wife, sister, auntie, and BFF, Suzanne was loved by all - especially dogs and children. Kind, loving, and generous to no end, she befriended everyone she met. Suzanne's passions included travelling, baking, gardening, and water aerobics, but most of all shopping for friends and loved ones. She always showed up at get-togethers with an armful of food and gifts. Born to Larry and Vera Moeder, Suzanne was one of six children growing up in Torrance, CA. She started her 30 year career in aerospace at Tridair Industries where she met David, her husband of 39 years. Long-time residents of Newport Beach, Suzanne and David recently moved to Villa Park. Sadly, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May. Survived by her husband David; brother-in-law, Michael Henry; and four of her five siblings: Bill (deceased) & Pat Moeder, Melinda & Gary Biddle, Sheila & Patrick Kuhlman, Roxanne & Steven Elliott, and Kurt & Nicole Moeder. She was Auntie Suz to Jason, Jenny, Jamison & Jacqueline Biddle, Lisa Moeder, Kim, John, Paige & Daniel Opferman, Samantha & Grace Moeder, Dillon Elliott, and Joe Dutko (deceased). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a celebration of Suzanne's life will be held later when we can all laugh, cry, reminisce, hug and kiss with loving abandon in her honor. Suzanne, aka Zan & Suz may be gone but she will live in our hearts forever! In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made online to or by mail to SU2C P.O. Box 843721, Los Angeles, CA 90084-3721

Suzanne, David and Pippa . . . one of the many dogs who will miss Suz!
It's impossible to express the loss that we are feeling, Suzanne has been a staple in our lives for over 25-years. We met her and David shortly after we bought our home in Newport Beach when we were walking our new puppy. She immediately approached us and offered to babysit Maggie if we every needed a dog sitter . . . who knew then, that she would become one of our dearest friends and "second" mother to our fury family members - she grieved with the passing of Maggie and Lacey, like they were her own. She had such a big caring heart and would do absolutely anything for anyone . . . we need more people like her, the world would be a better place, so selfless. We will miss Suz' beautiful smile, caring heart, warm hugs, her "grocery" store which we frequented to save ourselves from a quick trip to Ralph's for one item, her fabulous fashion sense and great sense of humor . . . what a beautiful life she lived and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her, is a better person for it. Thank you for all of the love and good times our dear friend . . . we'll miss you here on earth but you'll be in our hearts forever. We love you and miss you . . . Chris, Katrina and Pippa

The more enriched a person makes our lives, the hardest it is for us to let them go. For this reason, I know that saying goodbye to Suzanne will be the hardest sorrow to bear. I hope that the wonderful memories you have of Suzanne, as well as the love and friendship you have around you, will support you through this time and help you to smile once more. I have my memories of grammar school and high school till now to cherish. My sympathy to you, David, and all the family.

Suzanne was that fun loving cousin from California that would fly out to Western Kansas to visit her aunts, uncles, and cousins! It was always a big deal when she came. May she always be remembered as a big deal......

Went to high school with Suzanne, though we weren't in the same social circles ( she was popular I wasn't) she was always nice to me.
