She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Frank Fisher Reynolds, Jr., her parents, Leo Edward Linbeck and Patti Ruth Maloney Linbeck, her brother Leo Edward Linbeck, Jr. and wife Connie, and her sister, Patricia “Poppy” Linbeck Doyle. She is survived by her five children, Frank Fisher Reynolds, III and wife Maria, Rev.

Born July 29, 1937 in Houston, Texas, Suzanne attended St. Anne School, St. Agnes Academy (class of 1955), St. Mary’s College, Barat College and The University of St. Thomas.
On September 7, 1959, she married the love of her life, Fisher Reynolds, Jr.
Her concern for the unborn led to her involvement in the founding of, and leadership in, both Houston Right to Life and Texas Right to Life.
She was a devoted, lifelong member of St. Anne and Holy Rosary Parishes.
She was a member of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, the Knights of Malta, St. Anne Guild, Charity Guild of Catholic Women, Sarabande, Allegro and the River Oaks Country Club. She also served on the Board of Directors of the University of St. Thomas.
First and foremost, Suzanne was an outstanding model of a Christian wife and mother who was dedicated to her husband and children. Her strong faith provided a foundation of values that were passed on to her children and grandchildren. Together with her husband, Suzanne accompanied her children and grandchildren throughout their sacramental lives. Nothing ever interfered with the attention she gave her family.
She always enjoyed spending time with her family and was particularly fond of shopping with her grandchildren for their birthdays and attending their school events.
The family would like to thank her daughter, Andrea, for her generous and loving care of Suzanne throughout the past many years.
