Sue Ellen "Suzie" Valdez was born on March 27, 1960 to Cecil and Judith Carpenter. After a short battle with cancer, Suzie passed away at her home on April 19, 2021.
She had a love for the outdoors! Suzie and her late husband, Jose, would spend all their free time fishing, camping and exploring. Suzie had a nurturing spirit and was loved by so many. The list of family acquired through friendships is long - she loved them all, blood relatives or not.
Suzie is survived by her sisters Sheryl Gonzales (Jesse), Leilani Soper (Jim), and Tanya Pillon (Kris).
She is preceded in death by her husband and love of her life, Jose Valdez; her mother, Judith Gentry; father, Cecil Carpenter; and her grandmother, Florence Chapman.
