If you're reading this, it's because you are a friend or family member of Susanne's, and we want to make sure you have the latest information about her upcoming celebration of life.

Susanne was diagnosed with Large Diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma in late April of this year. Though she was hopeful and did her best to fight it, it is an aggressive and ruthless type of cancer with only a couple of standard treatment options, one of which was not available to her due to her age. The other was a type of chemotherapy, which she received a few courses of but which was ineffective. Following her latest hospital stay, and a brief attempt at palliative care and rehab, we made the family decision last week to move mom onto Hospice care. It was an extremely emotional and difficult decision, but was in line with her written wishes. Mom passed on Monday afternoon at 2:27PM, peacefully and with us by her side.  

We will now use this site to keep people updated on our plans for a celebration of life, to be held on Saturday, 9/18/21. In the meantime, we encourage you to share messages, photos, and memories of mom, and we will share them as part of her service. If you'd like to reach out to one of us directly, you are welcome to do so, but don't be offended if we're unable to respond immediately. All positive wishes, prayers, and food happily accepted.
