Suzanne Almeida Scott, affectionately known as Sue, passed away on Sunday, September 17, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love, compassion and indomitable spirit. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Suzanne’s life was a testament to her unwavering dedication to those she loved and the causes she believed in.
Throughout her life’s journey, which took her from Westfield, New Jersey, to Centennial, Colorado, Suzanne’s warm and captivating personality left an indelible mark on everyone she met. Suzanne was a homemaker par excellence, dedicating her life to nurturing her family and making her home a sanctuary of warmth and love. In her leisure time, she reveled in playing golf, swimming, traveling and participating as an active member of her sorority, Delta Gamma, alumni association. One of Sue’s happiest moments was when she initiated two granddaughters (Kelly and Kasha) using her Delta Gamma pin.
A proud member of the Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield, New Jersey, Suzanne was also an active volunteer for many years at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, New Jersey, where she was honored as Volunteer of the Year, a testament to her selflessness and commitment to service. Sue was a devout Episcopalian and longtime member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
