  • Suzanne was so sweet and so pretty. She used to always email me jokes about Pittsburgh. Suzanne will be so missed. May you rest in peace. Love you, Janet and Jack

  • There really is little comfort when a young, vibrant life is cut short. Losing Suzanne has such an impact on so many people who loved her. It is especially difficult to mourn when we are not able to celebrate her life as sister and aunt together. Hopefully for now, knowing that she is at peace and will forever be in our memories will be enough. In the meantime thinking of her as a small energetic girl, a young beautiful woman and a loving, warm homemaker and mom! You will be missed.

  • This is incredibly sad. My heart hurts for you. I will always remember her as the beautiful, talented, loving girl that she was. Lori McCann

  • I have so many memories of Suzanne. She was my best friend in middle school. We had so many sleepovers. Skiing. Key Club. 4 years of cheerleading together. So many classes together. I loved her dearly. I am so sorry Judy and Brian. You are in my prayers.

  • Suzanne was a beautiful, intelligent, lively lady taken from us far too soon. Her life was complicated with medical issues that she bravely fought. May the memory of Suzanne's life be eternal. Aunt Patty & Uncle Garry Dorning
