Susan DEYOE

Susan K. DeYoe, the beloved daughter of Dr. Robert and Kathryn Greene, passed away on August 4, 2023, after a battle with Alzheimer’s. Dr. Greene, who worked as an obstetrician at Emanual Hospital, delivered Susan on May 8, 1947, and went on to adopt her. Susan is survived by her husband Dr. David DeYoe of Harbor Springs, Michigan, and her brother Daniel Greene of Comox, British Columbia.

Susan, also known as Suzy, grew up in Portland, where she attended Faubion Elementary School alongside her close friend and neighbor Sally Struthers from “All in the Family”. She later attended Grant High School and Oregon State University. Suzy and David met during their time at OSU and tied the knot on June 7, 1968. As David pursued his Master’s degree, Suzy served as the Manager of the Pediatrics Clinic in Corvallis. During David’s pursuit of his Doctoral degree, Suzy took on the roles of Manager of the ENT Clinic at the University of Missouri Medical Center and Director of the Missouri Lions Eye Tissue Bank. They eventually returned to Corvallis, where they resided for 8 years.

Afterwards, in 1986, Suzy and David relocated to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and then settled in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, in 1990, where they lived until their retirement in 2012. During their time in Canada, Suzy pursued higher education and obtained a business degree and an MBA. She applied her newfound knowledge to the development and supervision of Health and Safety programs. They lived on a picturesque property encompassing 4 acres of pine forest with 200 feet of beachfront on Lake Superior. Their active lifestyle included wind surfing, biking, boating, cross-country skiing, and cozy bond fires on the beach. In their retirement, Suzy and David found solace in Harbor Springs, Michigan, residing in a ski/golf/equestrian resort. Sadly, in 2015, Suzy was diagnosed with dementia, but she remained stable with mild to moderate symptoms until 2022. Suzy will always be remembered as an intelligent, independent, and occasionally stubborn woman who radiated love and kindness to all those around her.
