Over the years, her crocheting talents earned her numerous awards from the Ventura County Fair and other local events. She took her love of crocheting and passed it onto her students at the various knitting classes she taught throughout the community. Suzi was a daughter, a sister, and aunt.

Katherine was a beautiful person who I was lucky enough to share laughs & tears with. I will miss her & Marissa. I will miss her creative mind and her many lessons in crafts but mostly I will miss her friendship. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends.
