We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Bryant-Grant Funeral Home and Crematory
Suzanne Brock passed away peacefully on July 31, 2022, surrounded by loved ones and with an angelic smile on her face. She is survived by her husband, her children and stepson, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Suzanne lived life to the fullest, bringing her intelligence, positive outlook, and joy to everything she did. She was born in Memphis, TN in 1939 and was the oldest of five siblings. She began to play the piano at an early age and became a gifted musician, playing the organ for church, directing the choir and teaching piano lessons to many lucky youths. She owned two small businesses in her younger years and retired early to enjoy life on her own terms. She loved nature, gardening, birdwatching and especially loved sitting on her porch looking at the mountains she so loved. She was a skilled needlewoman who quilted, knitted, and did intricate hand embroidery. She learned to fish and ride a motorcycle late in life and found great joy in both. She could put more fish in a boat than anyone else in the boat. She said it was because she had so much faith. She lived a life of faith in all things.
She was generous, loving, and compassionate and everyone who crossed her path was touched by her love. She had a smile that would light up a room and melt hearts. She made friends easily and always kept up with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren’s lives. She stayed interested in life and had a sharp wit and a great sense of humor.
Proverbs 31:31 was written with Suzanne in mind: “Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” She was a bright light, and she will continue to shine from heaven on all who knew and loved her.
This excerpt from a poem by Elizabeth Ammons was found in her handwriting in a planner next to her favorite chair:
You can shed tears because they are gone or smile because they lived.
Your heart may be empty because you can’t see them,
Or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can cherish their memory and let it live on.
Suzanne’s memory will live on in the hearts of all who loved her.
Private family services will be held at a future date.
