She is survived by her most awesome cat, LuLu, who will be happy that her cat tree can now be moved to in front of the large picture window.


Suzie’s most favorite thing to do was to cook up one of her best recipes and bring it to a friend. Everyone she knew benifitted from her joy of cooking. Following is Suzie’s favorite recipe, White Bean Chili. She would want us to share that with you.



1 lb. lean ground chicken, 1 medium onion, chopped, 2 cans (15 oz each) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained, 1 can (4 oz), chopped green chiles, 1 tsp. ground cumin,

½ tsp. dried oregano, ¼ tsp. pepper, 1 can (14 ½ oz.) reduced-sodium chicken broth. Optional toppings; reduced-fat sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and chopped fresh cilantro.


  1. In a large saucepan, cook the chicken and onion over medium- high heat until chicken is no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, breaking up chicken into crumbles.
  2. Pour 1 can of beans into a small bowl; mash slightly. Stir mashed beans, remaining can of beans, chiles, seasonings and broth into chicken mixture; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat; simmer, covered until the flavors are blended 12-15 mins. Serve with toppings as desired.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Mary Lou Parr.
