Susan Burns, aka Suzi B., age 58, passed away on the morning of August 15th,

as she was called to her final resting place in heaven. Born in Wilmington, Delaware, on

Suzi loved the quote by -William Shakespeare “Love all, trust a few and do wrong
to none.” Suzi loved yellow labs, Italian food, sunflowers and lavender, the beach, red
wine, artist Aretha Franklin, big leather handbags and natural rustic wood.
As an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, Emergency Room/Trauma
Nurse, Flight Medic Nurse both rotary and fixed-wing, and Paramedic/EMT, Suzi was

saved hundreds of lives with her sharp critical thinking skills. The Emergency
Physicians heavily relied upon her because of her dependable accuracy. She has also
impacted, influenced, inspired, and mentored dozens of nurses in Palm Beach County.
She was known for her kindness, funny stories, having a big heart, her lack of a filter,
intolerance to disrespect and baking the best cookies in Palm Beach County. What she
missed most during her battle with cancer was providing passion and purpose to make
a difference and inspire people, and not having the opportunity to practice as a Nurse
