Suzanne Bate

September 14, 1942 — October 23, 2020

Suzanne May Bate (78) of Rich Hill, Missouri joined our Lord in eternal peace on Friday, October 23, 2020.
Suzanne was born on September 14, 1942 to Walter Harold and Dorothy May (Golden) Garrett in Kansas City, Missouri. She graduated from William Chrisman High School in Independence,  Missouri. Her career tended to revolve around different aspects of the trucking industry. She blessed many by sharing her skills and love of crochet, knitting, sewing and crafting in general.  She had an amazing capacity to tell a dozen stories in the process of trying to tell just one. She never met a stranger, all were just unacquainted friends.
Suzanne is survived by her sister, Patricia Horst, children: Lorinda Eissler, Sondra (Derald) Milner, Robert (Dee) Simmons, Michael Simmons, Meredith (Michael) Sanders, Gregory (Christina) Ferguson, Jennifer Miller, numerous grandchildren, many great grandchildren, and one great great granddaughter, one niece, one nephew, and friends.
Suzanne is preceded in death by her daughter, Cynthia Bolin, several grandchildren, her spouses, her parents, and one nephew.

A Thanksgiving style potluck dinner for the Celebration of life of Suzanne is scheduled on November 21, 2020 at 12 noon at
