Suzanne L. Stritzinger, age 58, went home to the Lord on March 7, 2023. She was born to William and Judith Stritzinger on September 7, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan. She attended Detroit Catholic Schools from preschool through graduation, including St. John Berchman and Servite Catholic School where she graduated as the Valedictorian. Sue then went on to attend Wayne State University, U of D and Lawrence Tech. She loved her job at Supreme Heating and Cooling. Countless employees said she was the backbone of the company. Sue always put others before herself and was a very selfless, caring woman. She absolutely loved animals and would take in strays and either get them to the shelter or get them a home. The shelter even named one of those cats Suzie after Suzanne. Sue worn her heart on her sleeve. She had a beautiful smile that would shine brighter than the sun and a heart even bigger than her smile. She enjoyed gardening, working in the yard and doing jigsaw puzzles with her mother. She loved spending time with her family and together they would play fantasy football. Sue was actually the current reigning champion this year. Her family and her faith in God were very important to her.
To cherish her memory, Suzanne leaves behind her parents, her siblings; Lisa Stewart, Ronald (Heather) Stritzinger, David (Vanessa) Stritzinger and Michael (Kilolo) Stritzinger, her nieces and nephews; David, Joshua, Allen, Mykah, Michael, Faith and Willam and her great nieces and nephews; Aaliyah, Allison and DJ.

"At Munch's supply I had the pleasure of working with Suzanne for 5 plus years and she was one of my favorites. Very bright and a great person. During the pandemic with product shortages while many contractors yelled and screamed about the lack of product Suzanne was just the opposite. She would call me and we would look at the various options we had and she would make it happen. That's the type of person she was. I told many of our employees at our Madison Heights branch "If all our customers treated us the way Suzanne did our jobs would be much easier and joyful". Suzanne was special. She will be missed.

"Suzanne was one of the smartest women I have ever met. She was such an important person at supreme heating and cooling. Having Suzanne around the shop made jaime and myself feel like we had somebody who could handle any problem and she did. She always had the answer. If she didn?t. She would find out and get the answers. When Suzanne had a task to do. It was perfect every time. She was such an inspiration to me. Even on days I know suze was not feeling good and should have not came into work. She still would push through the pain and do her job perfectly. I will forever miss her here at supreme.
Jaime and Mike Grabowski"

"Dear Family of Suzanne, Gary and I cannot believe that she is gone. We are still stunned by her loss We will miss her dearly. Suzanne was a bright light in a sometimes dimly light world. She was kind to everyone especially our customers. She would give me that look when someone needed help or something needed to be done. She helped so many people to have a bit more or to live a better .life. Suzanne was very intelligent and an expert at so many business operating systems. You could usually hear ? Suz can you help me? around the office. It was an honor and privilege to know her. We will miss her dearly. I had just communicated with her several weeks ago and I am so happy that we did. I got to tell her what she meant to me. Our entire family including our adult children will miss her. With deepest sympathy Gary and Carrie Provenzano and family. "
