Suzan Charlene Sheridan

October 12, 1937September 4, 2019

On September 4, 2019, the unthinkable happened, our mother, Suzan (“Z”) Charlene Sheridan, died.

She fell asleep the night before, warm in her bed, and never awoke. She drifted peacefully from this world into the next to continue her journey. Steadfastly beside her was her faithful pup and companion, Lily.

We were woefully unprepared for the news of her passing. She was larger than life. Always our constant beacon when we would lose our way, navigating us back to safe harbor. We pray for her guidance today and the days to come to gently lead us through this most difficult of challenges and profound grief.

She loved life. She loved her family and friends. She was everyone’s ambassador. She was a proud mother to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was smart, warm, funny, empathetic, sympathetic, kind, loving, witty, dependable, and eternally optimistic.

She was also strong, stubborn, fierce, opinionated, loyal, and a formidable foe to adversity.

And, she was beautiful.

Her heart will continue to beat in rhythm with ours and all of those who will forever love and remember her.

“Rest eternal grant her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her.”

Oh my darling, precious Z. I cannot believe you’re gone. I meant so many times to reconnect and now I can’t.
But I can tell your family about how much we cared for each other.
She moved to Milford PA many years ago with Ed. A good friend introduced Z to me as a good bridge player, and that she was! We became instant friends, not only in bridge games as well as golf partners, but as a couple with Ed and my Bill. We travelled together, laughed constantly and a light went out of my life when they moved from Milford and I lost one of the dearest women in my life.
Before that, I flew to Texas, met Babe for the first time, and joined Z’s yearly bridge group in Austin that year.
I also flew to Atlanta to testify for her in her divorce from Ed. Apparently her friends in Atlanta were too afraid of him, and I can’t say I blamed them. He was one scary person, even more so when she confided in me after she’d moved away.
Who knows why we women keep so much to ourselves which only helps to perpetuate abusive behavior from men.
I only know that the friendship between women is the most important of all. Husbands come and go, children grow and move away, but our women friends are always there when we need them.
Your mother was the funniest, smartest, stylish and beautiful friend I ever had.
I am envious of the years you all had with her. I’ve always secretly felt the same way about myself as I did her, but never for one moment felt any jealousy or competitiveness - i just delighted in being around her.
I would dearly love to hear from any or all of you. My phone is 570-296-4069 and you have my email. Im on Facebook as Betty K Hague. Please get in touch with me anytime. I hope this wasnt too long but that’s how important to me she was and IS. My love and heartfelt blessings go out to all her family. I will never forget this wonderful, unique, and one-of-a-kind lady I’ve been fortunate enough to have known and had in my life.
