In memory of
Suzanne Mead Lundin peacefully left her body behind on January 5, 2020 after a sudden and brief illness. She will be remembered as a beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend to more people than can be reasonably expected to count. She was born in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1940 to Richard and Ailene Mead and moved to Seattle two years later. An alumni of WSU and graduate of University of Washington, she earned her degree and obtained her first job at AT&T. After getting married to Jon Lundin in 1965 and having two children, the family relocated to Laguna Niguel, California in 1972 to raise their children. Suzanne rejoined the workforce when the kids were a bit older and worked at Ocean Pacific and Hobie Sports as a bookkeeper before returning to school where she earned a certificate in Human Resources Management from the University of California, Irvine. This led to a position at the diving certification company, PADI, where she worked until retirement. After retirement, she moved to Issaquah, Washington to be closer to family and life long friends but kept in close contact with those she held close to her heart. Suzanne loved to stay active, exercising and doing yoga up until her passing. She was a true lover of food, an amazingly classic and stylish dresser, a master of lists, an clandestine poet, an accomplished traveler, and most notably a loving and kind soul. She will be missed and survived by her sister, Beth Brown; brother, Rick Mead; daughter, Trisha Shapiro; son, Dan Lundin; and her grandkids, Jacob, Hayden and June. A gathering celebrating her life will be held in the Spring. An online registry is available to share thoughts, memories, condolences.
