Suzanne Grace Chisholm, age 73, passed away peacefully Wednesday morning, April 3, 2019, under hospice care, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Malden, MA on July 9, 1945 and was the daughter of Walter & Jean (Cottreau) Chisholm, and the sister of Jeanine Hallberg.
Suzanne was raised, and grew up in Westford, MA. She was a resident of North Chelmsford for 17 years, and was recently residing in Carlisle, MA.
Suzanne graduated from high school at Westford Academy, where she was an adventurous young woman, with great spirit and ambition. Throughout her life, she worked for various companies as an executive assistant, which included GCA Corp, a vendor of critical computer chip making company, which closed its' doors in 1993. After that she decided to take a couple of years off to stay home and spend more time with her children. She later went back to work as a rape crisis counselor in Lowell, MA, at a center dedicated to the healing and empowerment of survivors of rape and sexual assault through counseling, advocacy, and education. She ultimately retired from her position at, as an executive administrator at the Museum of Our National Heritage Museum in Lexington, MA.
Suzanne was an amazing cook who loved to host her family and friends, and everyone who had the pleasure of her cooking will truly miss it. She loved to garden, be in her yard, and create flower arrangements, either for herself or for friends and events. I think in another life, she would have followed that path as a profession, because she enjoyed it so much, and was truly exceptional at it.
Suzanne was very much a cat person, and loved her companions, who helped keep her company and give her undivided love throughout her life.
Suzanne is survived by her children; daughter Hope Jordan, grandson Benjamin Jordan, of Chelmsford, son, Matthew Killam, daughter-in-law Luciana Killam, and grandkids; Elias and Camila Killam of Chelmsford. She is also survived by her sister Jeanine Hallberg, and brother-in-law Jack Hallberg. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews.
Visiting Hours will be held on Sunday from 2:00 - 5:00 pm in the BLAKE CHELMSFORD FUNERAL HOME, 24 Worthen St., CHELMSFORD.
Funeral services and interment will be held privately.
