Our hearts are broken. SuzAnne has been a life long friend since we were so young. Always caring and devoted to family and friend's, there could simply be no better friend in the world.

Back on the 70’s I worked nights at LDS Hospital with Suzanne and dearly loved her. We had some good talks and helped each other through some very busy nights. She always shared how great family was and how much she loved being their mom. I considered her as a dear friend and wish we had kept closer contact. ❣️
I send my deepest sympathies. Suzanne had sent me a message a week ago and all it said is I miss you!! Well I miss her too. She was my friend coworker and all around great person. My heart goes out to the family. She loved you all very much. I had many laughs with her at Ask A Nurse and Selecthealth. She is missed by many. Nancy Perkins
There are no words to describe the friendship I had with Suzanne. She made me laugh like none other, would often enlighten me with her deep and honest insights and always made me feel loved and important. Her smile and her sense of humor will be missed. I love you McOmie family and thank you for sharing Suzanne with me.
SuzAnne is also survived by her younger brother, Douglas (Linda).
Andrew and Emily and family,
We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I felt as if I knew her from all of the wonderful things I have heard about her over these many years. We love you and send heartfelt condolences for peace and comfort in this most difficult time.
Love, Glen and Brenda
my sincere condolences.
My heart is broken with the loss of of such an amazing friend. I have many great memories of Suzanne that I’ll never forget. We not only rode to work together but worked together for years. She always had fun stories about her family or vacations or work. We were even together the morning when 9/11 happened.
She was an amazing nurse and shared her knowledge with neighbors and friends. I will miss sitting with her at church and Sunday visits and laughing. I love her rowdy personality and friendship. I will always love her and miss her.
We are so very sorry for the loss of a great woman. Aunt SuzAnne will be missed by all. Sending love and prayers 🙏🏻
My husband Ron and I are members of same ward as Jenny and Brian, the Eastridge 2nd ward. We're sorry for the sad news of the passing of Sister SuzAnne Seely McOmie. We've not ever met Sister McOmie but from the obituary she appeared to be a devoted nurse, wife, sister and grandmother. Rest in peace.
