FORT BRANCH — Suzanne Odom, 58, of Fort Branch, went home to Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior Monday, June 14, 2021, at her residence.

She was born Nov. 25, 1962, in Princeton to Frederick Halwes and Frances June (Beadle) Halwes.

She graduated University of Evansville with a bachelors in computing science and worked as a programmer for Atlas Van Lines. Also, Suzanne worked as an aide at Fort Branch Community School in the Special Education Department and was a very active member of First Baptist Church in Princeton.

She enjoyed being involved in many ministries through the years, as a deacon’s wife, teaching Sunday school, leading youth, and overseeing the Special Needs Ministries. She was certified through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and was a great example of a devout Christian, working and giving her life to serve God. She loved listening to John MacArthur and was musically talented on piano and clarinet. One of her many joys in life was being a loving wife, mother, and Nanna and spending time with her family. She will be missed beyond measure.

Suzanne is survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Patrick Odom of Fort Branch; children, LeeAnn Munro of Fort Branch and Benjamin Odom (Makayla) of Fort Branch; grandchildren, Anabelle Munro, Gunner Munro, Avery Odom, and one grandson on the way; brother, Scott Halwes (Tricia) of Huber Heights, Ohio; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins also survive.
