January 25, 1936 - April 24, 2020
Suzanne was a loving mother, wife, and an avid churchgoer. She served as a board member of a Christian Science church where she was a reader many Sundays. Suzanne was happily married to William Goode for just shy of 60 years at the time of his passing in May 2016. Their lives together were filled with giving; be it as Scout leaders or as foster parents of children and young babies. They were blessed with a large family having their first child, Debra, a few years into their marriage. Years later they adopted a son, Steven. Later for a brief time they fostered a young girl, Audrey, who was able to return to her home. Through their time as foster parents they also adopted two children: a young boy, Douglas, and a girl, Jessica. Fostering also brought Ashley to the family. The final addition to the nest came in 2004 with the adoption of Donovan. While showing so much love to these children they also fostered many infants who needed a home and care. Many babies passed through their house until another family wanted to adopt them. One year they were recognized as Foster Parents of the Year in the state of Maryland. Suzanne treated children in the neighborhood as if they were her own. She was always looking out for the friends of her children, offering guidance or assistance whenever needed. Suzanne loved working with children. For many years she worked at Liberty High School as an Instructional Assistant working with children with special needs. She thrived while working there and saw many of her kids grow and achieve as they should. Suzanne will always be remembered for her love and kindness to everyone. She was the best mother any of her children or foster children could ever ask for. She was devoted to providing them with the love and support they needed. Suzanne lived a long fruitful life until William’s passing. Sadly, in her final years she suffered from the loss of her best friend and husband, the loss of her sight due to macular degeneration, and the loss of her wonderful personality due to dementia. Her final years will not define her life. Instead she will be remembered as someone who was an inspiration to others, and for the love and care that she willingly shared with everyone she met.
