Suzanne had a far-reaching influence on not only her children but every young person who sat at her table. She encouraged young people to be honest and genuine and to follow their hearts. Beloved by all her children's friends, they took pleasure in hearing Suzanne share her sage wisdom in her Brooklyn accent.

In 2006, Suzanne's firstborn Kathleen went to her great reward, and Suzanne mourned for her for the rest of her life.
