Suzanne was a graduate of St Joseph's High School in Jeanerette, and Maryville University in St. Louis, MO. She was a registered nurse for more than 30 years, and a former nun with the Sisters of Mercy in St. Louis.

Suzanne's warm personality and selflessness will be missed by everyone who knew her.
