SUSAN ZIRZOW Obituary
SUSAN ZIRZOW Susan Agnes Belin Zirzow rose into the arms of our Holy Father, May 24, 2018. She was born in Clearfield, Penn., October 10, 1945 to Carl and Margaret Danneker Belin. She was a graduate of Villa Maria College in Erie, Penn. and moved to Cleveland after graduation to begin a teaching career. Susan met a newly returned U. S. Army veteran, and married him December 13, 1968. Her husband of 49 years, Mark C. Zirzow of Bay Village, Ohio, asked her to marry him on their first date. Two sons were born, Mark C. Zirzow, Jr. and Mathew C. Zirzow, both of Las Vegas. Susan was very proud of her boys, and accepted compliments only on her sons. Criticism not allowed. Susan, known by all as Suzie, was known for her open and generous personality. She was quick to engage friend and stranger alike in conversation, making a friend of all she met. She was a favorite among the twenty nieces and nephews at her family gatherings. She had a reputation for interior design which she put to good use as she and her husband moved nine times over their marriage, initially as her husband rose through the corporate ranks and eventually to be closer to her sons. Due largely to her talents, her designs and houses became sought-after properties when they appeared on the market, often selling on the first day. She also used her artistic and design skills making jewelry which was often gifted to others. Suzie was proud of achieving 100 miles in hiking in 100 days with the Sun City Anthem Hiking Club which she accomplished last year as a new hiker. She had to drop out of hiking because of a bout with cancer. True to her style she fought and won her two-year battle with the cancer. Suzie was predeceased by an older sister, MaryKay McCooey; and younger brother, Michael. She is survived by siblings, Carl Belin of Clearfield, Penn., Margaret Shearer of Clearfield, Barbara Fahey of Pittsburgh, Molly Quinn of Littleton, Colo., and Sally Belin of Denver. Suzie was beloved by all and will be missed by family and friends alike. A celebration of life service is scheduled 10 a.m. Thursday, June 14 at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 2300 Sunridge Ridge Heights Parkway, Henderson, NV 89052. All family and friends are invited to enjoy a Celebration Lunch at Buckman's Grille, Revere Gulf Club, 2600 Hampton Road, Henderson, NV 89052 after the Celebration Mass. Lunch begins at noon. The family requests donations be sent to Conquer Cancer Foundation in lieu of flowers.
