  2. I light this candle with Love for my dear friend Suzanne. We played together as children and continued to be good friends into our senior years. A lifetime of memories. Suzanne was a wonderful lady. She alway had a smile, a kind & loving heart. Suzanne was more than a friend, sister’s by love.
    Suzanne so loved her son Chris & her face would light up with Love when she spoke of him.
    I find peace in knowing she is with our Heavenly Father as we had numerous conversations about our faith. I will so miss you Suzanne 🌹

  4. Suzanne was a caring spirit always willing to help a friend or neighbor. She always had a smile and a hug, never failing to make me laugh. She was a loving mother to her wonderful son (my nephew) Chris. He is an awesome husband and father because of the love and guidance Suzanne gave him growing up. She was an awesome sister-in-law always caring and helpful to my parents. My mom loved Suzanne dearly and enjoyed their many girls days out. I know they are hugging and chatting in Heaven today. While I’m sad that Suzanne has left us way too soon that image makes me smile. Love you girl. ❤️

  5. Praying for the Wimberly family. I have fond memories of visiting you all when I was just a little thing. Surrounding you all with love & prayers as you find a way to say see bye to a loved sister, daughter & aunt.

  6. Although Suzanne didn’t go to school with us, she joined our Pinehurst ’67 get togethers with Bobby Hunt. She immediately fit right in. We loved her happy, outgoing personality. We were so fortunate to have Suzanne part of our birthday dinners. We will certainly miss her.

  8. Suzanne & I reconnected when I moved to Seven Lakes over 5 years ago. We were great friends in school and enjoyed our Class of ‘68 lunches and our book club together. Our last night together was at book club that Wednesday night. We talked and laughed. It seems we laughed a lot together. I will miss her.

  9. Suzanne and I were friends forever. She was so special and made every person feel like an old acquaintance. I know she is happy, meeting her Lord face to face.

    Its your turn to walk the streets of gold, but you will be so missed!

  14. I work with Suzanne at Pinehurst Medical. I always found her to be smart and friendly. I was shocked to see that she had passed away. My condolences to all of her family.

  15. Suzanne was a sweet and kind girl. Thinking of her family and wishing all of them moments of peace and comfort as they remember her.

  16. My sincerest condolences to the Wimberly family. It was a heart-break to learn of Suzanne’s sudden passing. She was such a sweet and caring person. I was blessed to get to see her a couple of years ago at the Aberdeen class reunion, after about 55 years of separation. I have such fond memories of her. And I was fortunate to get to see you sisters at your home on Roseland Road as you all were moving stuff out. Sorry I missed getting to see Mrs. Betty Jean on that trip, though I had a couple of great phone calls with her about that time.

    Suzanne will be sorely missed.
