Suzanne Thomasson Munzesheimer passed away peacefully at her home in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019. Suzie was born on July 20, 1940 to Bill and Annabell Truax Thomasson in Iola. Suzie grew up in Iola and was a member of the high school marching band and tennis team. She graduated from Iola High School in 1958. After graduation, Suzie moved to Bartlesville and was employed by the Phillips Petroleum Company. She soon became a flight attendant and moved to Dallas, Texas, where she met her husband Rick and raised their two children, Laura and Aaron. Suzie was active in her community as a soccer coach, Richardson High School band parent and member of Temple Shalom. Suzie became a realtor and was employed by the Henry S. Miller agency and Virginia Cook Realtors.

After many years of living in the Richardson area, Suzie retired and moved to her beloved lake house on Lake Texoma and later moved back to her hometown of Iola. Suzie recently relocated to Oklahoma City to be near her family.

She lived her life with gusto. She was an avid tennis player and fan. She enjoyed playing bridge and knitting. Suzie was a terrific cook and enjoyed entertaining guests. She was known as “Gram” by all the neighborhood children. Above all, Suzie loved her family, her friends and her dogs.

Suzie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Laura and Louis Barlow of OKC; her five beautiful granddaughters Baylea, Sadie, Lily, Hope and Hannah; her daughter-in-law Megan Burch; and her Yayas, Linda Guenther, Sharon Hoffmeir and Judy Jo Laver. Suzie is preceded in death by her father and mother, Bill and Annabell Thomasson; her son, Aaron Munzesheimer, and her Yaya, Naomi Oliphant.

Suzie was loved dearly and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
