Suzanne M. LeBeau
SUZANNE M. LEBEAU Left us suddenly on Saturday, April 19, 2014, doing what she loved the most: riding her bike. a painful reminder of the randomness of our existence on this planet. Born in Chicago, August 14, 1953, preceded in death by loving husband, Bill Kammer, father Thomas J. LeBeau, and brother Ernie LeBeau. Survived by partner Jim Matthews, mother Mary E. LeBeau (nee Carnagey), sister Janet (Horst) Bostelmann, and sister Kathie LeBeau, all of Santa Fe; brothers Tom (Chris) LeBeau of Lancaster CA, Terry (Mary Jo) LeBeau of Morton Grove IL, Don (Connie) LeBeau of Horseshoe Bay, TX, and Dan (Melody) LeBeau of Staunton, VA; loving aunt of many. Upon meeting you, Suzanne, it was easy to be drawn in by your outer beauty - - the smile, dimples, laughter, quick wit - - only to quickly realize it was exceeded by your inner beauty. Amongst your many loves were family, connecting with your endless circle of friends, sharing meals, cycling, chocolate, dogs, sunrises sunsets, and so much more. You will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved you. The family wishes to thank everyone for their kindness and support through this difficult time. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice. A celebration of Suzanne's life is being planned for the weekend of May 10-11. Please visit our online guestbook at for further details.

The loss of Suzanne left a hole in my heart that will always hurt. The many memories of good times with her, hearing her voice as she excitedly talked about her beloved Santa Fe, and her generous overall spirit... all contribute to the pleasure of having known and loved her. The good that came from this has been becoming friends with her wonderful, loving sister, Kathie!!

To the LeBeau Family,
We are old IBM friends of Kathie and, although we only met Suzanne once, felt like we knew her better through Kathie's eyes. Our hearts are broken for you all after such an unexpected passing. We pray for God's peace and comfort to surround you and give you reassurance that she is with Him and other loved ones and will forever be in your hearts.

With sincere sympathy,

Suzanne , Doyle Kaniff and I started at Editel in the very early days as 1st,co -workers...then grew to be great friends...
In 1988 I felt a need to move Telluride....
Suzanne visited me here...and soon found her Nirvania in Santa Fe....We visited frequently....and
found her to be so at home there...and then she lured her Mother and sisters to follow.
She was so happy there and finding her new passion for biking was enourmous....We had a nice long phone chat a few weeks ago...I will remember That and what a great friend she was to so many over the years..
My condolences to her Mother , brothers , sisters
And all her wonderful friends..

She was such a lovely spirit. Her sharing of Santa Fe made me a lifetime lover of the community and it's offerings. Will sorely miss her personality and supportiveness. Friends like Suzanne are rare; all the right things in a beautiful person. RIP and long live her legacy.

Suzanne did a sweet favor for me before she even knew me. Then she and her sister, Kathy, joined our singing group for awhile. What beautiful women. I am so sad not to have more time with Suzanne to enjoy her sweet nature and great dimples. We have made a donation in her name to a Hospice Center in Vancouver.

Although I am also a Le Beau, I only met Suzanne for the first time last year on my visit to Santa Fe with friends. We had a great time and planned on getting together soon. I met her sister Kathy years ago in Atlanta and were fast friends. We had a wonderful day shopping in Santa Fe that day and wish we could have met long ago. I was looking forward to more fun times with the girls. I only pray that she is with The Lord and at peace. All my love, cousin Doreen

Even though I rarely saw her, I considered Suzanne a friend. Always warm and welcoming, Suzanne was a competent, intelligent and sweet person whether on the bike or in business. A truly unanswerable passing of a beautiful woman so full of life.

I met Suzanne thru business dealings we had. Suzanne was always a joy to talk to and deal with. A bright smile and always positive. I had the opportunity to ride with Suzanne several times and share in her love of cycling. We will miss you Suzanne.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Suzie!! I hadn't seen her in many years but always remembered her as a sweet person. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I recently found out from a fellow former classmate of St. Willy's of Suzie's tragic death - my heart sank upon reading the news. While I've not seen Suzie in a long time, she was one of those people who is hard to forget. She was a good friend to everyone during our teen years, with a vibrant smile and fantastic sense of humor. What a terrible time for your family. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.
I hope you can all somehow find some comfort and relief during your time of grief. I will keep all of the LeBeau family in my thoughts and prayers. God bless Suzie and may she rest in peace.

I met Suzanne in 1998 when I worked on the A/C in one of the buildings she managed. We became friends and it was always a pleasure to see her. I last saw Suzanne in 2005 when I retired but know that if I saw her tomorrow, she would have that great smile on her face and give me a hug. She will be missed. My sincere condolences to all her family and friends.

Light for the Highest Good for the Soul of a dear yoga student and friend, Suzanne. What a shock! We at yoga adored her and enjoyed her smiling and friendly face.
Condolences to the family.

Dear Lebeau family,
I clearly remember Bill before and after he married Suzanne. They were like hand in glove and it was a wonder to know that he had found some who was so perfect for him. They were fun, and happy together.
Sadly, I remember his service, and I know that Suzanne would have thought about Bill every day since.
Her passing now brings only one consolation. I would guess that they are together again.
With all sincere thoughts,

I had the joy of working with Suzy for 6 years at Editel. We spent time together every day and one of my greatest joys was making her laugh. I did love that laugh.

My sincerest condolences for your loss of a one of a kind person
