Suzan was born in Bellefontaine December 23, 1939, to the late Gerald J. and Ida Lee Belle (Reynolds) Norris. She married Ralph Schrader September 1, 1962 in Bellefontaine, and he preceded her in death June 13, 1988.

A 1957 graduate of Bellefontaine High School, Suzan worked beside her husband for many years as they operated Schrader’s Office Machines and Supplies in downtown Bellefontaine. She had also worked as a state licensed child-care provider and provided loving care to many children over the years. Suzan enjoyed going to craft shows. Spending time with her family – especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren – was dear to her heart. Suzan was a lifelong member of the First United Methodist Church in Bellefontaine and was active in Sunday school, worship services and the Martha Circle of United Methodist Women. As a breast cancer survivor, she devoted many hours to the Reach for Recovery program helping other women cope with the rigors of breast cancer. Suzan was also a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority and was active in Bellefontaine’s Beta Zeta chapter.
