Suzanne Y. Bouloy passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, September 19, 2022.
She is preceded in death by her parents Thomas Raymond and Mary Claire (Galligan) Young, husbands: Deodato J. Bouloy, Richard Carleton Ames, Capt. U.S. Army (Korean War), six siblings and grandson Joshua Bouloy.
Suzanne is survived by her children: Greg (Kathleen), Claire (Stephan), Brian (Carol), Raymond (Marianne); grandchildren: Kaitlin, Sarah, Jonathan, Brooke, Jacob, Bryce, Brhett, Jared, Chase; great-grandchildren: Asaf, Bella, and another great-granddaughter on the way.
Suzanne was born on April 30, 1927, in Denver, Colorado. She attended Blessed Sacrament School, Cathedral High School and Loretto Heights College where she graduated with a degree in English. During her young adulthood, Suzanne worked as a teletype operator at Lowry AFB and taught kindergarten. She would later in life help to support her family by working as a substitute teacher.
As a young Korean War widow, Suzanne ran into Deodato J. Bouloy, a handsome native of British Honduras serving in the U.S. Army at Fort Carson, Colorado. Dato, who carried her phone number in his wallet after meeting her several years earlier, proposed on their second date and they went on to celebrate 58 years of marriage.
Suzanne was an intelligent woman and a devout Catholic who imparted her strong moral foundation into her four children, whose lives are testimony to her legacy.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to long-time friends and neighbors David and Audrey Northrup and caregivers Viola Cordova and Gary Cole for their compassionate and exceptional care of Suzanne during the past few years.
