John and family,
Suzanne was a key influence while I was a student at ASU. She was a trusted advisor in Kappa Delta and spiritual advisor sponsoring me on a Cursillo; where I met my husband Frank ironically.

The Ybarra’s are holding you close in prayer. We love you! Kathy

Condolence from Andrea Melcher on January 7th, 2020 10:23 am

Suzanne was a member of our Chapter Advisory Board when I was a Kappa Delta collegian. She was always so kind and calm and exemplified our Kappa Delta values. May she rest in peace and may the Lord provide peace and comfort to her family and all who loved her.

Andrea Heisler Melcher,

Suzanne was a principal who was open to new ideas and new ways to do things. She provided insight and support. St. Mary’s was fortunate to have her.

Suzanne was a consummate teacher who cared deeply about her students. As St. Marys’s girls golf coach she was loved by her team. As Principal she always had the betterment of St. Mary’s students, faculty, staff and parents as her focus. Her love of God was always present with her. She will be missed

Condolence from Jose Luis Valera-Bernal on January 11th, 2020 12:54 pm

I am sorry for your loss. I will keep all of you and Mrs. Fessler in my prayers.

I was a student at St. Mary’s ’14. I only knew her sweetness and kindness. Finding out she was a “biker-mama” put a great grin on my face.

May our Mother Mary have her in her arms. AMEN

Condolence from Sandy (Anders) Crockett on January 11th, 2020 11:05 pm

I was so sad to hear about Suzanne’s passing, but I know there was a special spot in heaven waiting for her. I met her at ASU when I pledged Kappa Delta, and I loved her always calm manner and kindness to everyone. She lead by example, and I always picture her with a smiling face. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family , including the extended “family” at St. Mary’s and all the KD sisters.
