Suzanne "DeeDee" Elizabeth Wright was born on Nov. 27, 1954 to Jim and Judy Patterson in Los Angeles, Ca. She was the second child out of six.

Sue loved her family, animals, playing games - especially Bingo, cards, Uno, Skipbo and Tripoli - doing crossword puzzles, and always enjoyed a good meal.

Sue is survived by her daughter, Heather; three grandchildren, Ashley, Cody and Thomas; three sisters, Pam, Mary and Stephanie; one brother, Paul; 5 nieces and nephews; Brian, Emily, James, Tyler and Paige; and her two fur babies; Rosie and Lucky.

We will miss her laugh, her willingness to help others, her twice baked potatoes, and easygoing and loving nature.

Rest in peace with Grandpa, Grandma and Tricia.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation in Sue's name to the Orange County Animal Shelter, where she adopted her beloved dog Rosie.
