Obituary of Suzanne Million

            Suzanne Million (aka Alene Elizabeth), age 92, Belleville, went home to be with her Lord and other family members on Wednesday, January 18, 2023.

            Suzanne was born January 8, 1931 in Kansas City, Missouri and grew up in Pittsburg, Kansas.  She graduated from Pittsburg High School and attended Pittsburg State University where she majored in Art.   She lived in Coffeyville, Kansas with her husband, Charles, for a time before they relocated to Phillipsburg, Kansas.   She was a business owner for many years in Phillipsburg, where she owned and operated Suzy’s Seller, a successful woman’s clothing store.  In 1985, Charles heard the calling from our Lord and Savior and they moved to Fort Worth, Texas.   Suzanne supported her husband as he completed his Masters of Divinity; and their mission in life became to serve God.   Her kindness, strong faith, and ability to create beauty were a perfect fit for this new life that spanned many years in several churches.  She also loved to travel and enjoyed memorable trips.
