Suzanne P. Netherton, the daughter of Arthur and Leola (Oswald) Porter, was born on April 27, 1930, in Hinsdale, Illinois. She graduated from Hinsdale High School with the class of 1948 and continued her education at Iowa State College until she met her soon-to-be husband Ray “Ed” Netherton.

Suzanne worked as a bookkeeper for various businesses throughout her life while maintaining the family home. Ed passed away in December of 1992, and Suzanne continued to live in Crystal Lake, Illinois until 2015 when she relocated to Ida Grove, Iowa to be closer to her son and his family.

“Ray and family- I'm so very sorry for the loss of your mother. I will always cherish the time I got to spend with her. She was a genuine gem of a lady! I loved helping her get NCIS on her roku set up for her. She would always say "wow your good" when I got it on for her and her eyes would light up because she was so excited it was her favorite show! Her laughter and smile was the best! She was such a joy to care for so laid back and always in a good mood. I remember reading her book to her and we would both laugh when I would stumble upon a big word lol she was just happy that I was willing to read to her. Love and hugs to you all. Rest in peace to you Suzanne ”
