Also, Suzanne was a member of the Wyandotte Figure Skating Precision Team. Suzanne was employed at Miller Canfield in Detroit as a Legal Secretary. Suzanne was a very caring person who loved her family and was a loyal friend to many. She was always ready to help out wherever help was needed. No one ever had to ask for help, she just seemed to sense it and did what needed to be done. Gardening and flowers were her love and joy. She beautified many homes of family, friends, and co-workers. If your flower beds had Suzanne’s touch, you had a beautiful garden. Suzanne can be remembered for her love, kindness, strength, and beauty. Suzanne will be missed!
