Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Family of Susanne: When making communion visits for St. Pauls at the hospital two weeks ago, I stopped by to visit with Susanne. She was as upbeat as she could be, and we prayed together. I remember her from Edgewood and Brooke High School. I would see her at the library, and we would chat. She is truly a beautiful person, and heaven is blessed to have her even though she will be missed always. Barbie

  2. Even though I only met her once, she was so pleasant. Her family is in our family’s and the many city employee’s prayers. Heaven is welcoming her in. God Bless, Reverand William C Stout ,Becki, Kelle and Ryan

  3. Mike & Kathy, Sincere sympathy on the death of your sister Susanne. Your family will be in my thoughts & prayers.

  4. I was so sorry to see that Susanne was taken from this world at a young age. My earliest memories of her are from St. Mary’s. When I was a child she was the “May Queen” who crowned the outdoor statue of Mary on Mother’s Day. Later in life I would see her in John Yeager’s law office or walking with her mother. Her quiet yet steady presence was always evident. May she now enjoy being with our God and Saviour!

  5. I was truly blessed to had the chance to meet Susanne. She was a very wonderful person and I truly will miss her. Heaven has another angel and we are beig watched over by a very special person.I am really going to miss her. Susanne has a wonderful family and my deepest sympathy goes out to them. Connie Palmeri
