    Having spent the summers with Suzanne as a young child was so much fun . We would climb the hills and play hide in seek in the coal mines of Shenadoah . Her mother was also a kind soul and would make our summers a memorial time . Suzanne’s kind spirit and personality will live on . She will truly be missed. Your friend forever !

    My sister Suzanne & I are ao very sorry to hear about Suzanne’s passing. We used to play together with Suzanne when we came to visit our grandmother during Summer vacation; our Baba lived @ 117 Lower Shaft in William Penn, just up the hill from Suzanne’s family. As a young girl, Suzanne was quite spirited and full of high jinx – needless to say, we had a ball, she on her scooter & us on our skates. So wish we had gotten in touch with her when we got older to catch up with one another. May God bless & keep her & her family always close.
