Suzanne (Sue) Marie Murdoch (Jurewicz), age 63, of Kalamazoo, MI. Sue passed away on Saturday November 12th, surrounded by family. Sue was a generous, thoughtful and adventurous woman who will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Sue was born to Robert and Dolores Jurewicz (Szudy) on August 15th, 1953 in Harvey, IL. She grew up alongside her loving brother Thomas (Rose) Jurewicz and sister Christine (Raymond) Juechter. Sue married Richard (Rick) Murdoch on September 29, 1973 at St. Irenaeus in Park Forest, IL. A job opportunity brought them to Kalamazoo in 1977 where they began building their life together. They raised a son, Brian (Alexandra) Murdoch and a daughter Lisa (Edward) Rebman. Sue had a passion for life and was an involved mother and devoted wife. Over the years she coached, cheered, nurtured and loved her family with all her heart. She was also a voracious reader who enjoyed capturing nature's beauty with her photography. We want to let her know that she did a great job and we wish her a safe journey. She will be remembered for her smile, her warmth, her energy, her love for life, family and friends. Everyone who knew her is asked to celebrate Sue's life in their own way. Random acts of kindness for those in need or even raising glass of wine to show appreciation for loved ones would be quite appropriate. A Celebration of Sue's Life Memorial Gathering will be held from 4:00 to 8:00 PM on Tuesday, November 15th at the Langeland Family Funeral Homes, Westside Chapel, 3926 South 9th Street, where a final blessing will be presented at the end of the gathering. In lieu of flowers, Sue has requested your support of either the American Cancer Society (www.acs.org) or Hospice of Southwest MI (www.hospiceswmi.org).
