Suzanne Sledge Barnes passed away Sunday, January 26, 2020 after a hard fight with cancer. She was surrounded by her family and dog. She was a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, and dear friend. Suzie was known by her grandchildren as Marnie.

Suzie was born July 4, 1951 in Bethlehem, PA; and grew up in Sheffield, Alabama. She attended Florence State University and received her degree from the University of Louisville. She was an EMT, and had a dedicated career as a skilled Nuclear Medicine Technologist. Suzie loved the beach and all things related. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, reading, making Halloween costumes, diving, collecting seashells and stones; and was equally adept at these and many other activities. She doted on pets of all kinds and loved her dogs fiercely. Suzie will be missed beyond measure.

She is also survived by her brother George Sublett, sisters Gretta Wild and Patricia Hatcher (John); children Christie Woodruff (Shane), David R.

Suzie-Q was by far, the most original, most enjoyable person to be around with her brand of wit and humor that extends to all around her. Her smile and laugh would light up a room.
She was instrumental in making me a great tech, without her guidance I would never have succeeded in getting where I am. I have always considered her to be a great mentor and one of my very best friends. She will be missed.

When I came home from my deployment Suzie had made a medal for me, in case I didn’t get one(which I didn’t) I wore it all day at work.
Suzie was the go to person for getting hard sticks for iv’s. She was also very knowledgeable on computers and also for fixing stubborn equipment. She was a true firecracker and not afraid to speak her mind. RIP my friend

There was nothing like sharing Halloween with Marnie. Suzie made the best Halloween costumes.

Dear Family,
I think son is Ben and daughter is Christie, but it has been several years and I have had some health problems also. So I apologize if I do not have the names right.
Suzie was one of my co-workers and a wonderful Nuclear Medicine Technologist. She was so very smart. But her main focus was her family. She loved her parents and children and their spouses and her grandchildren and of course her dogs.
She would tell stories about making costumes for the grandchildren. She was there when Ben got a kidney transplant and his wife had a baby and Christen donated a kidney.
