Suzanne died suddenly November 10, 2017, as a result of a completely unexpected myocardial infarction. As soon as possible we will all get together to celebrate her life, obviously with some music! For now, we are fighting our own disbelief by announcing her death and getting the beauty of her life and work acknowledged. Please use this space as a spot for stories and memories of our beautiful, amazing Suzanne. You may have your own videos and photos to share, and we welcome you to do so. Suzanne was all set to present next week at the 7th Annual Tapir Symposium in Houston. Watch for postings about memorial service developments and charitable contributions in her name.
Suzanne is survived by her husband Scott Davenport, her mother Hilde Kaufmann, brother Michael Kaufmann, and two cats, Mitzi and Herr Müller.
That wonderful smile. It’s what I see when I think about you. It’s impossible to think of you without remembering your radiance, your warmth, your laugh, and your unique infectious enthusiasm. With tears on my face, I am so grateful to find those things all over this page, in the pictures and words of all the people who miss you so, so much.
We didn’t see each other often, but it always felt special when we did. I think that was your secret talent. You had a gift for making people feel that you were especially glad to be with them. Thank you for making me feel special too. The truth is that you are the special one—and a simply unforgettable dear girl.
