This is simply awful news. We had plans to have lunch once covid ended. She and her family are in my thoughts. I am too saddened by this loss to elaborate how kind she was properly.

Such sad news.  She was a blessing to so many people here, and I hope her family takes comfort in knowing how cherished she was, here and surely in all other areas of her life.

I am so sorry to learn this. Many condolences to all her family and friends. She will be missed by all in the community.

 

Passing along sad news is not pleasant or easy and we are grateful to you for letting us know, Smithy.

I started clicking "like" on so many of your posts, but it got to be every single one.  My Jewish friends say, "My her memory be a blessing".  This expresses so much of what I feel about Suzi.  At eG, she wasn't one to stand on the sidelines and watch - she wasn't a lurker.  She jumped in and helped where help was needed, offered advice, etc.  I'm confident that she was like that in real life, too.  I regret that we weren't friends on FB.  I tend to hang back and wait for others to make the offer there (childhood fear of "putting myself forward").  So, I'm on FB.  I would welcome anyone from eG as a friend (I'm Kim Younger Shook).  I've had the best luck making friends with eG folks outside in the "real world".  Hugs to everyone.  May we all be blessed with our memories of Susan.

I'll echo @Kim Shook's sentiment. I'd be delighted to be FB friends with any and all of you. I'll warn you, though, the liberal diatribes can get fairly vicious (I have a number of friends who are just as conservative as I am liberal...)

Very sad news!

She was very good to me.

She'll be sorely missed!

I just don't want to look back and think "I could have eaten that."

Unsupervised, rebellious, radical agrarian experimenter, minimalist penny-pincher, and adventurous cook. Crotchety, cantankerous, terse curmudgeon, non-conformist, and contrarian who questions everything!

The best thing about a vegetable garden is all the meat you can hunt and trap out of it!

Thank you so much for posting this, Kerry!  What a wonderful memorial for Suzy.  Whoever wrote that obviously knew and loved her well.

@Kerry Beal Thank you for posting this.  While I didn't know her well, what I did know of her i liked very much.  I tried finding her obituary when we first heard that she had passed away but I couldn't find one.  I did have her name and address but that didn't help in my search for it.  Rest in peace, Suzi.  We miss you.
