Suzanne lived in and around Boston for over 50 years, spending most of her adult life in Back Bay and Brookline.  She received her undergraduate degree from Simmons College and her MBA from Boston University.  She was a valued manager at Partners HealthCare for over 30 years.  She was an adventurous traveler, lover of literature and a wonderful cook.  Her intelligence, strength and independence were admired by all who knew her. A passionate supporter of visual, performing, and literary arts, Suzanne was also a champion of women’s rights.  Suzanne was a devoted mother to her only daughter and best friend, Sarah Burkhart.  Suzanne and Sarah went on innumerable adventures together which will never be forgotten.  Her two grandchildren, Inez and Lucas Trejo, will forever remember the love of their “Mammow”.  Suzanne is also lovingly remembered by her son-in-law, Armando Trejo; her sister, Betsy Schneider; her brother-in-law, James Maitland; her niece, Rebecca Maitland; her nephew, Grant Maitland; and her friends.  She was deeply loved and will forever remain in the hearts and memories of her family.

    My sincere condolences to Sarah, Betsy and all. I was so deeply saddened to hear this news, she deserved so much more in her retirement. I had the pleasure of working with Suzanne for 15 years or so. She was a wonderful boss, we accomplished so much together and shared many many laughs. She was a good person and a good friend who will be missed.
