She was born in Wauseon on May 15, 1947, to the late Lloyd and Ilean (Simon) Graber. On November 17, 1979, she married Richard Belter, and he survives.
Suzanne had many loves in her life. Family was of utmost importance to her. She loved family get-togethers, being with her grandchildren and taking family to Wisconsin Dells. Suzanne especially loved butterflies, Twix candy bars, and pecan sundaes. She enjoyed the occasional trip to the casino, filet mignon, and coming home from Wisconsin for the holidays. Her family describes her as the most selfless person, being very giving. “Holy Buckets” was always coming out of her mouth. She was a member of Christ United Methodist Church in Wauseon and loved gospel music, especially that of Bill Gaither and she loved Elvis Presley.
