Suzanne bravely battled a form of leukodystrophy for the past five years. Suzanne was born on January 7, 1988, at Boone Hospital in Columbia, a daughter of Larry Dale and Delores Marie Dixon Yamnitz, who survive at home.

She was an avid fan of the movies and was especially fond of the Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia series. She was a 2006 graduate of Jefferson City High School and attended State Fair Community College for three semesters until her illness prevented her from continuing.
