Suzanne "Suzy" L. Schofield, age 68, left this life Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at Central Wyoming Hospice & Transitions due to complications from cerebral palsy and aspiration pneumonia.
Suzanne was the first child born to Martin L. and Edith M. Schofield May 3, 1949, in Midland, S.D. She was homeschooled by her mother. In 1968, the family relocated to Evansville, Wyo. She worked at Felgoodies for many years proudly receiving the honor of Employee of the Year in 2009 just prior to her retirement.
Suzanne lived her life as a Lutheran with strong faith and love for her Prince of Peace church family.
Suzanne had a zest for life and a smile for everyone she met, never meeting a stranger. She believed in being a friend and held on to those relationships all her life. Of her many loves, celebrating with her family and friends was her favorite. She loved beating anyone who would play her in Sorry, writing and delivering letters to Santa and celebrating all holidays. She was entertained by I love Lucy, Little House on the Prairie and Hee Haw. She loved fried chicken, plain M&M's and ice cream.
Suzanne is survived by her loving and dedicated mother, Edith M. Schofield; her brother, Marvin Schofield (Lucy); her sister, Brenda J. Balben; and brother, James M. Schofield. She was the proud aunt to three generations of nieces and nephews. She is also loved and cared for by a host of extended family and friends both near and far.
Suzanne was preceded in death by her father, Martin L. Schofield; her brother, George K. Schofield; and brother-in-law, Walter W. Balben.
Services were held at Prince of Peace, Saturday, March 10. Suzanne was laid to rest with her hero, her daddio, Martin L. Schofield, at the Oregon Trail Veterans Cemetery in a private ceremony.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Suzanne L. Schofield Memorial Fund to benefit the youth of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.
