Suzanne (Suzi) Stevens, age 92, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2021 in Atlanta, GA, from natural causes, at the Peachtree Creek Memory Care home.

Suzi was born in Chicago, IL on November 23, 1928 and was one of three children of loving parents, Dorothy (Gianneschi) Bonini, and Alvaro Bonini, who was the restaurant owner of Villa Rosa in Elmwood Park, IL.

Suzi was raised in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago, on Sheffield and Webster and attended school and church at St. Vincent de Paul Parish. After high school, she worked at a catering shop, making sandwiches for WWII soldiers. This job sparked her passion for serving the public and sustained a long history of waitressing. While waitressing at Petrica’s restaurant in Chicago, she met her husband of 61 years, Fred.

Her happiest years were at her home in Elmhurst, IL, raising son, Tom and enjoying her grandchildren. She co-owned a beauty salon-boutique called Me ‘n Suzi’s with her sister and best friend, Patricia. She loved to travel and embarked on many adventures. Suzi and Fred retired in St. Petersburg, FL.

Suzi is survived by her son, Tom (Debbie) Stevens, grandchildren, Christopher (Abigail) Stevens and Stephanie (Michael) Devaney and great-granddaughter, Emma Grace. She is also survived by sister, Patricia (Frank) Miulli and nieces, Christine (Gary) Douglass and Laura (Christopher) Boffey. Suzi is also leaving behind many nieces, nephews, cousins and notably, Border Terrier, Oscar. She was predeceased by her husband, Fred Stevens and brother, John Bonini.

Suzi was short in stature but big in heart, faith and family. Enduring many trials and tribulations, she was an extremely strong and tenacious woman. She was exceedingly talented at cooking and entertaining for friends and family. Suzi will be truly missed by all of her family and friends who had the distinct pleasure of knowing her.

There will be no wake, memorial service or funeral, at this time. In lieu of flowers and donations, please share your condolences, fondest memories and photos of Suzi on this website page.
