Mrs. Suzanne Bramblett, 90, passed away peacefully at home in Lebanon with family by her side on Monday, April 5, 2021. She was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on March 5, 1931, a daughter of the late Dr. Robert S. and Lois Ruth (Watkins) Ball.
Suzanne was a life resident of Boone County and had graduated from Lebanon High School. On November 30, 1951, she was married to Edward Dale Bramblett in Lebanon. They shared 43 loving years together before he passed away on January 1, 1995.
Suzanne had a long standing, close connection to Centenary United Methodist Church in Lebanon. In 1905 the Methodist adopted a resolution to build a new church on the corner of South Meridian and South Street. It had a congregation of 600 members and the Sunday school was under the Superintendence of Dr. J.R. Ball (Suzanne’s grandfather) and her grandmother was the organist of the church.
Suzanne was a faithful servant to the Lord and the church body. She enjoyed the ladies’ small group, traveling on short daytrips, and was always happy to help in the kitchen with funeral meals. Suzanne stayed home to raise her children for many years. She later worked at Witham Memorial Hospital until retirement. During retirement she volunteered for the hospital, local libraries and visited with people in local nursing homes. Above all else, family was her everything whom she cherished.
