Suzanne E. Hoefel Obituary
Hoefel, Suzanne E.

Suzanne Edna Hoefel, 62, born December 10, 1953 in Albuquerque, NM passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family on April 20, 2016, in Albuquerque, NM.

Suzanne is survived by brother Charles Hickam and wife Patty Shuman; mother-in-Law, Theresa Hoefel; son, Zachary and wife LeeAnn and grandchildren Elena and Mason; son, Dustin and wife Kelsey & grandson Colby.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dave Hoefel; father Ray Hickam and mother Edna Hickam.

She was the best daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Suzanne worked as a Speech Language Pathologist for over 20 years and touched many lives not only with her professional knowledge but also by her kind and patient love for her students. She was on a plane traveling the world whenever she had the chance and her golf clubs were always packed. Her green thumb will forever be envied as her grass was green all year round and her flower gardens were a reflection of her spirit, beautiful. She loved her family and friends and never met a stranger. Her home was open to all and her hospitality, laughter and biscuits and gravy were world renown. Her grandkids were the light of her life and spending as much time with them was her priority.

Memorial service will be held at St. Stephens United Methodist Church, 4601 Juan Tabo Blvd., NE, on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 10:00 AM.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in her name to The Folds of Honor, 5800 N. Patriot Drive, Owasso, OK, 74055, a foundation that gives scholarships to children and spouses of lost or wounded service men and women.
