Suzanne Croft

Jul 20, 1960 - Apr 15, 2017

Suzanne “Suzi and Aunt Tudi” Croft passed away on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Benefis Healthcare.

Suzi was born on July 20, 1960 in Pocatello, Idaho to Dean and Joan Croft.  When she was 3 years old the family moved to Great Falls. She attended local schools and graduated from Great Falls High School in 1979. 

Suzi’s greatest love was her family, seeing everyone together always made her happy.  During her adult life, Suzi was extremely involved in her nieces and nephews lives and that is why she was affectionately called “Aunt Tudi.” It didn’t matter what occasion it was, a birthday, special holiday or just a kind gesture, she was always thinking about what she could do for them, that affection was shown through in many ways.  It may have been through a fun crocheted hat or blanket, a beautiful colored pencil sketch, the beading of a Christmas angel, playing pinochle, painting the kids finger and toenails, shooting pool/darts with friends or sharing one of her many beloved stories with anyone that would listen, she loved to see others happy.  She was also a huge lover of animals, especially her cat Gracie.

Unfortunately, because of her many illnesses and health setbacks, Suzi left our lives way too early. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her family. She is now free!

Suzi is survived by her mother, Joan Croft of Great Falls; siblings Jim (Twila) Croft, Debbie (Bruce) Steffani, and Wendi (John) Wirsching; several nieces and nephews whom she considered her own children, T.C. (Paula) Payton-Croft, David Wirsching, Amanda (Ron) Jensen, Kelli (Dusti) French, Jenni Steffani, Brittany (Nick) Budeski, and Cord (Lou) Halmes; great nieces and nephews, Addy, Ava, and Ronnie Jensen, Landon French, and Leila Budeski; and many special cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Dean Croft.

A family burial will be at 10:00 at Highland Cemetery prior to the memorial service at 11:00 on Friday, April 21, 2017 at the Northwest Family Fellowship, 300 23rd Ave NE, Great Falls.

I went to school with Susie as I called her from 5th grade. She was always kind even when others were not. I went to her family home a few times to hang out and we shared many laughs. Later in life i did see her and we had a chance to talk. She was the same old Susie. So sad to see she has left us for a better place. I am sorry for you loss. God Speed Susie, your friend Janet Brummett Thompson.
