Suzanne Blair Lemser

August 5, 1935 — May 3, 2021

Suzanne Blair Lemser passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 3, 2021 at the age of 85. She is survived by her loving husband Lawrence, daughters Lorrie Thomas, Jane Gonzales and Jody Nixon, son-in-laws Marc Gonzales & David Nixon, & grandchildren Alexandra Gonzales, Andrew Gonzales & Izzac Nixon.

Sue was born on August 5th, 1935 & primarily grew up in Dayton, Ohio, although she spent her formative teen years in Detroit, Michigan. She met her husband while they attended DePauw University and were married upon graduation on July 5th, 1958. She and Larry retired to Montrose 20 years ago and contentedly settled into life on the Western Slope.

Professionally, her life was spent as an elementary teacher. She earned her masters degree mid-career so she could work with special needs students. Sue was also an ardent arts and crafter and spent many happy hours doing needlecraft, copper-enamel jewelry, wood carving and following her life-long passion of tole painting. She was a member of the Black Canyon Wood Carvers group and the Friendship Quilters of Western Colorado.

A celebration of her life is planned for later this summer. The date will be published when known. Donation can be made in lieu of flowers to HopeWest,
