Suzanne E. Rimmler passed peacefully on November 20,2022 surrounded by her children and their spouses. She is preceded in death by her parents, Eric and Anna (Fedinatz) Broomhall and her loving husband William F. Rimmler.
Suzanne's early years were spent on a farm in Wilpen, PA with her grandparents. As a young adult, she moved to New York City and graduated High School there in 1949. She subsequently completed her certificate for Cosmetology; however, she never pursued a career in that field. Instead, she met the love of her life, William, at a church social in 1947 and they married in 1952 while William was serving in the US Air Force based in Arizona. William's career with the Air Force and with other employers led to Suzanne and William living in a number of places in the US, including California, Colorado, Ohio, Georgia, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania and lastly Florida where they retired in 2005.
Her passion was her grandchildren. She was very proud of her grandson, William, a Lieutenant in the US Coast Guard at its Detroit, MI base and her granddaughter, Katrina, who has her doctorate in Linguistics and currently works as a Research Scientist for Tobii International.
She loved reading, gardening, decorating and entertaining family and friends. While living in York, PA, Suzanne was involved in the community, her church and neighborhood. She was a member of the local Welcome Wagon and worked as a Sales Associate for a local department store. While living in Wilpen, PA, she was an active member of the Covenant Presbyterian Church in Ligonier. As a lover of animals, she had many pets throughout her life, including a Wire-haired Fox Terrier dog, several cats and a German Shepherd dog.
Suzanne is survived by her daughter Susan (Rimmler) Connell and her husband Robert Connell, Jr. of Annville, PA, her son, William F. Rimmler II and his wife Sharon Rimmler of Leola, PA, her granddaughter Katrina Connell of Annville, PA and her fiance, Eric Billman of Florence, SC, her grandson William F.
