Suzanne Holbrook, 76

Who died? These were the words Suzanne Holbrook would say when she opened the paper and flipped to the obituary. Suzanne Holbrook passed away December 3rd surrounded by family. Her quirky sense of humor and sassy attitude were a great comfort to those who embraced her towards the end of her time here on this earth.

Suzanne Holbrook was born in Middletown Ohio on July 15, 1944 to Joseph and Opal (Forbes) Schroeder. She leaves behind her daughter, Lori Anne, son Robert Price (Kris), grandchildren: Wayne Davis (Courtney), Kasey Waltz (Doug), Whitney Osborn, Holly Marie Black, Cheyenne Hetherington (Loren), and Jason Black along with two great grandsons: Owen and Elliott Waltz. Suzanne is preceded in death by her husband, Bruce, her granddaughter Riley Ann, brother David Schroeder along with her parents Joseph and Opal.

Suzanne Holbrook lived her life as many of us only dream of. She spoke her mind. She danced. She traveled. She loved and was loved. She watched Netflix shamelessly. She was and is adored by her family and friends.

“Say not in grief she is no more’ but in thankfulness that she was.”
