Suzanne had such an awesome competitive spirit, whether it be at bowling, playing cards or living her life her own way. I will be forever grateful that I knew her and was able to be her friend. She will be greatly missed.

Hello Bill, Must be what I wrote several hours ago got lost in the black hole, so will try again. I was so sorry to learn about Suzanne. I had no idea she was ever sick. I remember her way back to enjoying being a Brownie & Girl Scouts with her in grade school. Recall when she even had to have an appendectomy too. That made a significant impression on me. She was this petite, thin, fair skinned girl who easily laughed and was a good sport. I am so sorry for you & your familys loss. Be kind and gentle with yourselves as you navigate this unwanted and unasked for path of grief. As your former classmate am sure others will be keeping you & your family in our hearts and prayers. Sincerely, Mrs. Jim Hewitt. (Patti Khodl)

She would go to dance class, then teach me what she learned in her basement. Great memory.

I have known Suzanne and hubby Bill for over 45 years. Suzanne was an icon to the bowling world in Kalamazoo Area. She was a good bowler herself and she loved to share in the many glories of Bill's bowling. She truly enjoyed being at the lanes and had so many friends. She was a fun, witty and a joy to be around. My wife Maggie and I traveled to many locations around the country with Suzanne & Bill. What good times we had! I want Bill, sons John and Will to know we and so many others are thinking of you during this sad time!!

I met Suzanne when our husbands were bowling in the same league. Over the years we joined them as they bowled in the ABC Nationals and enjoyed our time together visiting, watching our guys bowl and seeing a good deal of the country. In recent years Suzanne and I were always partners beating "the boys" in Uno and dominoes. She was great fun and I am going to miss those evenings of dinner, games and laughter. Rest in peace dear friend.

I met Suzanne when our kids were young. We spent many weekends in bowling alleys watching the kids bowl, and Suzanne and i bowled in a woman's league. I have a lot of special memories of Suzanne and Bill. we lost touch over the years, as I moved away from the area. Sending hugs and prayers to Bill, John and William. Know that she is watching over all of you and is no longer suffering. Karen Burnell Krajecki
