I am sorry to hear that Suzanne had a difficult time approaching her demise.  I am happy she had support, a husband and Weimaraners.  What more could one ask for.  Throw in hiking.  Fantastic.  She certainly had a stunning academic and professional life.  

We shared one thrill:  on the local version of the national show College Bowl, (which featured Allen Ludden before Password)-- no, not on College Bowl, on the local version, Scholar Quiz, she and I were two of the 4 person team of seniors who attacked and destroyed Arcadia High School's team (by at least a couple points;  I think we won the Electoral College vote, even).  How could we lose with Suzanne there.  But we had trained and practiced until our heads were swollen.  (Or maybe we were imagining ourselves training for the big time, with Jeopardy.)  For the record, the other two on our team were Elayne Stanton and Queenie McClain.  Our jackpot:  for each, a leather bound volume of Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, my copy of which I still have, usually within reach of my desktop.  

A life well lived.  Rest in peace, Suzanne.

A life well lived indeed.  And well said, Bill.

Yesterday afternoon my husband and I met up with Chris Johnson and her husband -- they live north of Austin, TX. and were in town for Chris' niece's wedding in Escondido (north San Diego Co.). The first I had heard of Suzanne's passing was when Chris had read it in the local paper a few days ago and asked me if I knew. I do remember chatting with Suzanne at our 45th. Thank you, Bill, for sharing that wonderful story when you were Seniors. What a proud moment for you all. :)

A brilliant, accomplished woman she was indeed and so very kind. May the Lord comfort her husband and all those who were dear to her in the days ahead.

A star student, certainly also (from the obituary) a star person, too. Did not know her well, but enjoyed every moment I spent with her--at LCHS, and including a conversation at the 45th Reunion.

Make that "bright star".

There is a memorable picture, and adjacent charcoal rendering by Terry Holm, of a blonde woman studiously peering into a microscope on the Foreward/Contents pages of our 1966 Omega yearbook. Could this be a prophetic fortelling of the future scientific and academic career of Dr. Suzanne Biggs?  What an impressive life story.
