Suzanne Anderson


(nee DeNieff), resident of Paramus, NJ, formerly of West New York, NJ, passed away on January 25, 2019 at the age of 71 years.

Beloved wife of 50 years to Garry Anderson. Loving mother of Eric and his wife Marlaina Anderson and Brian and his wife Barbara Anderson of Barnegat, NJ. Devoted grandmother to Jasmine, Brandon, Hailey and Brady. Dear sister to Michelle DeNieff of Liberty, NY and Colette DeNieff of Durham, NC

Predeceased by her parents John and Marion (Dlugoszewski) DeNieff, her brother Michael DeNieff and her granddaughter Lily LaRue Anderson.

Suzanne was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She lived for her family and was an active and hands on grandma. She led the Anderson cheering section at every recital, play or sport event. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, especially over the holidays. The best gift one received was when she asked, "What should I cook for your birthday", because you knew it would be the best meal ever and your favorite every time. We will forever judge potato salad, mashed potatoes, Sunday gravy and chicken dishes harshly and with great prejudice. Her favorite adventures took place in Atlantic City casinos and on the Jersey shore and boardwalks. Whether playing her favorite slot machines or chasing a grandchild on the pier, buffet line or sand, it was home base for so many memories and a tradition that will be missed greatly. She was a lifelong Beatles fan and loved Paul McCartney. She had decades long friendships and was always on the phone with one of her girls or her sisters keeping everyone up to date. She never forgot your birthday or anniversary. She was caring, funny and kind. We will miss her soft sweetness, her laughter, her hugs, and her warmth. Suzanne will truly be missed by all.

Family will receive friends on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 from 11AM-1PM at the Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 113 South Farview Avenue, Paramus. A Memorial Service will be held at 1PM at the Vander Plaat Memorial Home.

In lieu of flowers, as an expression of sympathy memorial contributions in Suzanne's memory may be made to the LILY LARUE FOUNDATION, 73 Freedom Hills Drive, Barnegat, NJ 08005

We sadly mourn the loss of our friend, Sue, who became family. She always greeted us with a smile & a kind word. Sue loved everything I baked, especially my cookies. She would tell everyone they weren't good. If no one ate them, more would be left for her. We will miss her warmth & her smile & remember her with fondness. Rest in peace. With love, Ro, Steve & Stevie

Suzanne I am missing you more and more as each hour passes. I love you so much. You fought so long and so hard. We made our 50 years and now they seem so short they flew by fast. Rest now my love, we'll be together again in no time at all. I Love you Garry
