    Sister Suzanne will be remembered as a bouyant, ever smiling member of our Pastoral Team in the 1980’s at St. James Parish. She administered a school of 800 students with grace, fortitude and dignity.
    Rest now my dear friend from all your labors. Father Fitz

    Sister Suzanne was my 5th grade teacher. She was a great Lady and I am so glad that she touched my life in 6th Grade.
    Love and prayers to her family and the Servants of Mary Community. She always called me Catherine.🙏
