Suzie was employed at Union Electric/Ameren and retired as a Senior Accountant after almost 37 years.  She and Lee enjoyed many trips throughout the United States. She also traveled many parts of the world with fellow travelers who became lasting friends.  She earned a Master’s Degree in Business from the University of Missouri St. Louis. She was an animal lover, especially elephants. Suzie loved fashion and you could always expect her to be dressed beautifully, whatever the occasion. Her grandchildren all lovingly remember her and “the game” she created and played at Christmas every year. Cheryl and Linda enjoyed Suzmom’s company on many shopping trips, lunches, and pedicures. They also enjoyed hearing the excitement about her trips when she returned, arms filled with little gifts to share. We will all miss her immensely. Her generosity, kindness and love will be remembered forever.
