Suzanne was always ready for an adventure and enjoyed hiking, snowboarding and scuba diving. She took polo lessons and once bungee jumped from a hot air balloon. Suzanne's biggest joy came from sharing her love for food, and she was always ready to host a feast at the spur of the moment. Suzanne loved all animals -- especially her cat, Lily, and her puppies Rapunzel, Jethro, Tasha, Maley, Osceloa and Sacha. She also had a range of other pets from hamsters to fish and birds. Suzanne was a lover of the arts and music. She loved to play the piano and harp. She shared this love with her son Christian, who plays the bass guitar and percussions.
