Suzanne Loeffler

March 12, 1932 - April 4, 2019

Suzanne Loeffler, aged 87 years when passing, was born on March 12, 1932 in Joliet, Illinois, as Suzanna O'Daniels. Everyone called her Suzy. She grew up during the Great Depression with very little and her parents and siblings lived for a period of time with her grandmother, Anna Bruggie. Their house had 7 chimneys because her grandfather built the house himself, one room at a time and each time he extended a room, he would add another chimney. She was very proud of her humble beginnings and that shaped her to who she would become later in life, always appreciating what she had. <br /> <br /> She met her husband, Ed Loeffler and they married on October 21, 1953 and had 4 children together, 2 of which are twins. While raising her children, she was stationed all over the world, because Ed was an officer for the US Air Force. She was proud to have been a military spouse for over 20 years. They lived in many unique places such as England, Germany, Hawaii, San Francisco, and the mid-west of America and traveled all around, visiting many more places. <br /> <br /> After her oldest daughter, Linda Escobar, gave birth to her 1st child, Sue moved in with Linda and her husband to help take care of him. Three more children came along and Sue helped raise each one from their home in Rancho Santa Margarita, California; where she would live in, even after the grand kids grew up, for 35 years until her passing. Sue had 2 other grandchildren from her other daughter, Lori Rilkoff, whom she would visit in Canada often. <br /> <br /> Sue's pride and joy was her family and loved sharing her stories from her past travels and military life. Anyone who met her loved her and appreciated her kind heart and her art of starting a conversation. <br /> <br /> She is joined now in heaven with her sister, brother, parents and grandmother and her son. Her survivors are her children, Linda, Lori (Ed) & Lee Ann (Ken); plus her grandchildren, Rachel, Jeremy (Kaleigh), Brendan (Jessica), Erin (Myles), Cameron & Caitlin; and 2 great grandchildren, Sophie & Amelia. She was loved and will be missed by all.
