I was heartbroken when I heard of Suzanne’s passing. She was my first boss when I moved to Fernandina 18 years ago. She is one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. She showed more of that kindness recently when my daughter passed away!! Suzanne really was a special lady. She will be missed by so many!!!
So very sorry to hear of Suzannes passing. Great friend & I miss her terribly! Wonderful person, miss the dimples and that sweet smile!!
I was so very sorry to hear about Suzanne's passing. I remember her as a sweet teen-ager who always had a smile for everyone. Her parents were both very special people who raised her to know and love Jesus her Lord and Savior. She is know celebrating being in His presence with her parents. I am sorry that I will miss the Celebration of Her Life as it was a life well lived, but I will be out of town. Know that I have been prayed for you and your boys to feel the peace and comfort that only God can provide.
It is just beautiful how the Lord works, connecting His people for even a smile and kindness when needed. My only contact with Suzanne was during a fundraising effort with my daughters. We stopped at the bank to sell Callahan bbq dinners, and after an exhausting afternoon, she greeted me with her thoughtful smile and made sure the form would get passed around. I’ve never forgotten her kindness and determination to help my girls raise money for their Allegiance Youth Choir mission trip. When a friend mentioned Suzanne’s passing, I remembered her kindness to me. Reading now of her faith makes sense. She was showing the love of her Savior to us, and now she walks with Him. May God comfort her wonderful friends and family, and may you each lean hard into His breast for peace and strength.
I have literally thought and prayed for y’all every single day. It doesn’t even seem real. I always saw her when I was working Nursery every couple of weeks she was in the room next to me. She was the sweetest kindest person. God bless you and your family praying for you guys.

Suzanne was a bright shining light whether you encountered her in the community or at her workplace. We always felt a little bit better after we spent time talking with her about family, life, health of parents, her future retirement plans, etc. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

I do not believe I actually knew Suzanne, but know she touched my life apparently as working at one (or more) of my banks. I am 10 years older than she was and her picture brought a feeling of peace to me due to her pleasantness. I was compelled to let you know how she actually affected me anyway. What a LIGHT on this earth. Peace and Prayers to her husband and boys - know you had a wonderful presence in your lives that touched ppl like me. ☮️ ✝️ 🙏
I am very sad and heartbroken that Suzanne has been taken from us. I am very grateful to have had her in my family. She made our family better, we were Blessed by her. I will miss her very much. Suzanne will live forever with her Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
