  6. I really enjoyed getting to know Susi through Hans and Chris and, later, to enjoy her friendship in our Book Club, Pearls ‘N Wine. She contributed both serious insight and much, much laughter. She always seemed to sparkle during those evenings with our friends.

    She has been incredibly brave in her battle with cancer and I have admired her greatly. I spoke to her shortly after Hans died and she was sorting out her basement with the kids so they wouldn’t have to do the task alone. Mother’s love is amazing; Suzi was always thinking of her children.

    I am so happy that I could call Susi my friend and I send sympathy and love to everyone in the Spiess family.

    My condolences to Matthew, Diana and Julia, and Ruth and your entire family. I have good memories of our times together, especially our trip to Capernwray. I admired her expression of faith just a few months ago, and how very brave she was. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time..

    Dear Annie and Family,
    So sad, the passing of dear Susi. I remember her sparkle, warmth and wit. I was lucky enough to have her as my “boss” at Operation Christmas Child and she made it a fabulous experience. We all enjoyed her so much.
    May God comfort you in this time of loss; he called her home, his angel.
    With love, Christine Baisch
