Suzanne Herzog (Simpson), 57, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Sunday, September 16, 2018 after a six month battle with cancer.
Sue was born in Flint, Michigan to Marjorie and William Simpson. She met the love of her life, Matthew Herzog, the year after graduating from Power’s Catholic High School, and they married in July of 1986. They moved from Ann Arbor to Charlevoix in 1997 to raise their two children. Sue was known for her radiating joy. She could make anyone feel loved in a moment. She cared for people, and always went above and beyond to serve others. She loved spending summers on Lake Charlevoix with family and friends, and hunting for Petoskey stones along the Lake Michigan shoreline. She will be remembered as warm, selfless, hardworking and kind.
Preceded in death by her father, Dr. William Simpson, grandparents, and father-in-law, Dr. John Herzog.
Sue leaves behind her husband, Matthew Herzog; son, Ryan Herzog (Sarah); daughter, Haley TeBos (Bryce); sister, Debra Ferrier; brother, William Simpson (Lesley); mother, Marjorie Simpson; mother-in-law, Ruth Herzog; and countless beloved family members and friends.
A special thank you to all of the wonderful people who took care of Sue over the past six months. Thank you to Jennifer Boop and the Charlevoix Infusion Center; Dr. Cathy Wonski and the doctors, surgeons, and nurses at Charlevoix Area Hospital; the nurses of Hiland Cottage; Dr. Tom Tietjen; and Dr. Loren Wise.
