Suzanne Slaughter was born Jan. 12, 1955, in Wiesbaden, Germany, and passed away May 21, 2017, in Austin, Texas.
Preceded in death by her beloved mother, Elaine Kincaid Slaughter, Suzanne is survived by her father, Col. (Ret.) Clarence Benton Slaughter Jr., her sister and brother-in-law, Nancy Slaughter and Gary Bowers, and a host of loving friends.
The daughter of an Air Force pilot, Suzanne grew up in France, Virginia, Alabama, Japan, Okinawa, North Carolina, and Kansas.
In the early 1970s the family settled in Austin, where Suzanne spent most of her adult life. She graduated from Sidney Lanier High School, attended the University of Texas at Arlington, graduated from Jackie Nell Secretarial School, and embarked on a successful career in banking. In 1987 Suzanne was promoted to investment officer at M Bank Austin and continued her education through The American Institute of Banking. She applied her knowledge of funds management to a new career with the Texas State Treasurer and Comptroller offices. As an accounts examiner, Suzanne enjoyed helping people locate their forgotten funds and valuables.
Suzanne loved to travel, which she did extensively. Her talents for cooking, sharing a funny story, her sharp wit, contagious sense of humor, fierce loyalty and independence endeared her to everyone who had the privilege of knowing and loving Suzanne.
