During her working years, Suzanne was involved in the various aspects of real estate, including sales, relocation services, and office management for such companies as Coldwell Banker in New Jersey and various smaller companies in Ohio.
In her retirement years Suzanne became involved with the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida. There she welcomed guests and explained how the center was a hospital exclusively dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of the various species of injured sea turtles that frequent Florida’s eastern shore.
Suzanne also developed a fondness for freshwater fishing in the lakes of Connecticut and many times she would bring home her favorite fish, a large mouth bass, to be enjoyed as the centerpiece of a fine evening meal.
Suzanne was always fond of saying, “Keep a smile on your face, love in your heart, and beverage of choice close by.” She will be greatly missed by all her friends and family.
