  1. Condolence

    I remember Suzanne well from a number of times she called me to sub for her at LaCrosse United Methodist Church. I also attended a number of her Christmas programs. Musicians in our area are few and far between, so I am particularly sorry for our community. She was so dedicated to the song, and as I recall, she played and directed well in to her 80s. This kind of dedication took a great deal of her time, talent, and energy. I know that Suzanne will be missed not only by her family, but by those whose lives she touched. I know I am very glad I got to meet her. May she rest in peace, and may her family be comforted at this grevious time. Musically, Richard N. Watson

  2. We weren’t musical. Mrs Ferguson was always a valued bridge player in my mother’s group. It was just a few years ago that covid interfered with their play. She was sharp with cards and delightful all around

  3. What a sweet and Christian lady she was. So sorry to hear
    of her death. There is no question that she is rejoicing with her Lord and Savior. May God be with each member of her family in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my home to yours.

  4. Music

    Suzanne was my choir director and good friend. I sang in many choirs and programs led by her. She was an excellent musician in our church, La Crosse UMC, and a good cook. She fed me many times, along with her family, and served everyone well. We will miss her, but, at the same time, we rejoice that she is with our Savior, whom she loved and served very well. Love and comfort and strength to all the family!

  5. So sorry to hear of Mrs Ferguson’s passing. She was a very special and talented lady and will be greatly missed. So glad I got to know her through LaCrosse U.M Church Contata’s. I am sure she is leading a Heavenly Choir now.
