Cripe all of Edwardsburg; a brother Chuck (Patti) Hardyman of Summerfield, FL; a sister Candy (Jerry) McMillen of Glen Allen, VA and five grandchildren: Justine, Bailey, Bo, Ashton and Gavin.
Suzie loved shopping, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She loved all holidays and birthday celebrations, especially with white birthday cake. Her favorite color was yellow so anyone sending flowers is asked to tell the florist to make YELLOW the primary color in your arrangement.
