Suzie’s parents moved from Bunkie to Ferriday in approximately 1930 so Suzie could attend school in Ferriday. She graduated from FHS in 1943 and was the Salutatorian of her class. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Suzie was the pianist for the FHS jitterbug band known as The Stardusters. They performed at various functions and dances. In 1947 Suzie graduated from LSU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics. Suzie married Ogden Louis “Denny” Ducoté in 1948. Denny died in 1965. Suzie subsequently married Frederic “Fred” Raymond Patier Johnson. A highlight to her wedding to Fred was an overseas phone call from her brother who was stationed on board an aircraft carrier in Japan at the time. Fred died in 2003.
The family would like to thank all the Lay Eucharistic ministers who brought communion to Suzanne. In addition, the family would like to thank Dr. Huey Moak and his staff and the staff of Enhabit Hospice.
