I am so saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. She was the most caring, loving, woman and we shared many motherly concerns together after daily masses, and prayed together for our children. I’ll never forget when she had all the children in her CCD class write home-made “thinking of you” notes to one of my children and put them all together in one large envelope and mailed them to my child. God bless you, Suzanne, I will miss you❤️
I was truly blessed to have you as my mother-in-law. You saw the good in everything and everyone. You were such an inspiration to all of us, quietly leading by example, how to treat everyone with kindness. Everyone who met you loved you. You were so good to my children and I always loved how close you were. When Rachel would leave on a Tuesday to help at outreach Wednesday morning, she would pack for the week and say "I may stay until Friday, I don't know." I loved that and she did even more. Thank you for sharing your time to go to everything, out in the cold watching Brian's football or little league baseball games. it meant so much to them.
The trips to Maine to meet and visit your relatives was always so much fun, just being together as a family, even doing nothing special meant so much. We enjoyed all the Lobster rolls and the Nubble lighthouse, York beach and the salt water taffy.
Now that Mike and I are going to be a grand parents ourselves, I am going to be the best "Memere" (mamae). I will carry on the name and all that it means, you have some big shoes to fill. We will miss you more than you could imagine, but we will talk about you, and our family will treasure the memories we have made together.
Rest in Peace mom.
First I would like to thank everyone for coming, especially during these trying and uncertain times. I’m glad we could gather and grieve together today, but it is more important that we are also able to celebrate the special life of my mother, Suzanne. For all of you that knew her, you know that's what she would have wanted, no tears, no fuss, just warm memories and laughter.
Forever modest and always shying away from the spotlight, my mother spent her life giving and helping others. Whether as a devoted wife of almost 58 years, a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, compassionate nurse or role model, my mother was always there to lend a helping hand.
She was a devout Catholic who went to church everyday and treated everyone she met with kindness and respect. As a nurse she worked in both hospital and private duty roles. Early during the AIDS crisis my mother volunteered to help while most others were afraid to. She worked with the poor and most vulnerable daily at a local clinic but somehow still had the strength to come home and take care of her family with a smile. She always had time for everyone else, taking very little for herself. Even after she retired, she still gave her time freely to help those in need. She volunteered at the local food pantry, and along with my father was a big part of the parish at St John of God.
She baby sat for all of her grand children and forged special bonds with each of them, she dog sat as well. She made the time to go to every school concert, sporting event and recital. She was fair to a fault and loved us all in her special way. She is the binding that holds our family’s book together.
I truly believe she fought her illness for as long as she did in order to make our family bonds even stronger. Now that she is no longer with us, it is up to all of us to honor her efforts and keep our family intact. Her job is done, she is finally at peace and we should all take comfort in that. Mom you will be missed but never forgotten. You will live in our hearts, minds, deeds and stories. Our family still has so many more chapters yet to write. We love you.
Sending you lots of love from Virginia Beach! I was blessed to spend time with Suzanne a few times in the past decade...her smile and kind heart lit up the room! She will be missed ❤️
Sending love and condolences to the McIntyre family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
So sorry for Mack and Sue's family. She was special to each of you and is now special in heaven with all the family that went before her. Imagine the great reunion going on! Dwell on the good times and the relief that she is no longer in pain, just happy to be with Jesus and one day all of you once again. Take care.
