    Clint, you are in my thoughts and prayers! I’m so sorry; I received a card in the mail yesterday from Suzy-I visited with her on the phone Friday and Saturday. We had sooooo much fun at the pool and appreciated her friendship and Getting to know you, Tiffany & Rachel.
    She truly was a special lady and I’m so glad we were friends. We met at Fassnight swimming pool and she instantly became a very special friend. I’m delighted she’s in Heaven and passed peacefully, but I’m truly going to miss her. Please let me know what I can do for you and the girls. Denise Koechner 🙏😇

    Suzy was a sweet sweet friend and business associate. I am lucky to have spent an hour talking with her last Friday. She was always so happy and upbeat and such a great friend. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Suzy will be greatly missed and leave a hole that nobody can fill.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Suzy throughout the years on our insurance and renewals for our business. She quickly became a great friend instead of a business acquaintance. I know she had numerous clients and businesses that she worked with but she never forgot the names of my family members and always made a point to ask how everyone was doing and what was going on in my life. She was eager to tell me about how proud she was of the girls and her husband Clint, I felt as if I knew them personally. Each time we talked on the phone she always had me laughing and was always a bright spot in my day whenever we had to discuss work or she would just call to check and see if we needed anything. Suzy will be greatly missed.
