Madison - Suzanne Maillette, loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, died on Jan. 14, 2019, at age 71.
A lifelong artist, Suzanne had a passion for beauty in its many forms. Her paintings, although abstract, often reflected her favorite elements of nature, including trees, Sandhill cranes, water, and flowers.
Family and faith were two important elements of Suzanne's life, and she found great comfort in both during her final days.
Survivors include her children Danielle (Jeffery), Matt Holmes (Maria), Joe Holmes (Jennifer), Peter Holmes; grandchildren Tanner, Parker and Teddy; siblings Joanne Morley, Michael (Anne), Jim, John (Mary); and nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Suzanne was preceded in death by husband Horace "Mugsy" Holmes; parents Clarence and Marilyn (Neises) Maillette; and brother Tom Maillette.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Suzanne's name to the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County, https://www.bgcdc.org/donate, 1818 W. Beltline Hwy, Madison, WI 53713.
The family thanks the physicians, nurses and staff at Meriter Hospital for their skilled and compassionate care.
