Our beloved Susan “Suzi” Carol Reese entered heaven on Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021, at the age of 63. Suzie was born Dec. 2, 1957, in Green Bay to Donna Mae (Prickette) and Gerald William Smith.
In 1977, Suzie married Kelly Goplin in Mesa, Arizona. They had two sons Justin “Jay” and Derek.
Suzi worked her early years in advertising and later operated her own recruiting company.
While working as a sales rep for McCloud Yellow pages, she met her husband, Randy, in 1998. They were married for 24 years before his death in January 2021.
The highlight of her life was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She thoroughly enjoyed raising Megan and Kamden the majority of their lives. Suzi was known for giving big hugs.
She loved music and was extremely talented. She played multiple instruments. She would often be seen outside working on her yard. Suzi was also extremely talented in decorating homes. Next to the love of her family, was her love of animals, especially her dog, Mindy, who she is now reunited with in heaven.
