Suzanne Joy Shultz, 79, passed away on Monday, June 18, 2012, after a long battle with cancer, with her family at her hospital bedside.
Suzanne was born in Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 17, 1932, to Ella and Myer Lieberman. She was indeed a “Joy” after two boys. She grew up in Kansas City, Mo., and married Joseph Shultz, the love of her life, in 1953.
Suzanne, Joe and their two children moved to Seattle in 1960. She lived in Bellevue, Wash., for 50 years. She loved learning, volunteering and owned two companies (Celebrations, Inc., and S&J Sales), retiring as a women’s clothing sales rep. She was active in her synagogue, a lifetime member of B’nai B’rith and Hadassah, and belonged to many other organizations.
Suzanne was a very special person. She collected friends of all ages everywhere she went. She sparkled whenever she interacted with people and found a way into every heart. Suzanne loved to travel, especially being in her Casablanca condo in Palm Desert, Calif., where she enjoyed her friends and her passion for the outdoors.
She was a devoted wife for 59 years to Joe; proud mother of Dr. Wendy Shultz Spektor (Michael) and Alan Shultz, all of Seattle; and loving grandmother to Jordan and Jeremy Spektor. She is also survived by her two brothers, William Lieberman of Mercer Island, Wash., and George Lieberman (Floriene) of Leawood.
Funeral services were held at Herzl Ner-Tamid Synagogue and burial was at Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Bellevue on June 21.
Donations in her memory can be made to the University of Kansas Cancer Center, 4125 Rainbow Blvd., Suite 300, Kansas City, KS 66103.
