Prayers to the family for guidance and strength to get through the coming days. I only met her once but I remember she did light up a room. May God give you peace and comfort knowing she is in a beautiful place.

Gaile whittlesey, Montgomery, Tx

There are no words to express the deep hurt we feel for all of you. In these times we call upon God to give the strength to endure the time needed to be in some small way healed. All the prayers we can offer are for you the family, Douglas, children, Sam, Renee, Ava.

Rusty and Pam Brandt, New Braunfels, TX

My deepest sympathy to the family. May the God of all comfort provide with the strength needed during this difficult time. Psalms 34:18 (jw.org)

Receive in tranquility and peace, O Lord, the soul of Your servant, Suzy, who has departed this present life to come to You. Grant her rest and place her in the habitations of light, the abodes of blessed spirits. Give her the life that will not age, good things that will not pass away, delights that have no end, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ~ St. Ignatius

George and Jill Kneuper, St Mary's, KS

No words can reach your aching hearts, for their just seems to be nothing anyone can say to soften your sorrow or lessen your loss, which is so new, keen, and sharp with the pain of parting. Our rational minds will never understand what has happened, but our hearts...if we keep them open to God...will find their own intuitive way. As I read of Suzie's personal & professional accomplishments I understand this loss is not only personal...it's a loss to all the future medical professionals who could have profited from her expertise. May you find the courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today. You're in our thoughts and hearts and in our every prayer.

David & Karen Rayburn Amanda & Jon David, New Braunfels, TX

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. There simply aren't words to express how sorry we all are. I hope and pray that God keeps you in his loving arms and carries you and your family in the coming days and years. I remember seeing you guys in Church every Sunday and there will be a big gap in the pew where Suzanne always sat. May her memory be eternal.

Suzanne Kneuper Linder (chrismated Zenaida), aged 37, reposed in Houston, TX, on October 9, 2014. Suzy was born in Olathe, KS, on January 8, 1977, and was raised in New Braunfels, TX, among the waters and trees of the hill country she would always love.
A competitive gymnast as a child, the sport was a vehicle for her care and mentorship of many wonderful girls as she coached them throughout her high school and college years. A lifelong educator and academic, she graduated from New Braunfels High School in 1995. She received a BS in Psychology from Texas State University, her MA in Health Psychology in 2001, and her PhD in Behavioral Sciences from The University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston in 2010. She worked as research faculty in the Department of General Internal Medicine and Research for MD Anderson until she moved to The University of Texas Medical Branch as an Assistant Professor in May 2014. During her distinguished career she produced many professional publications and received many awards, most recently becoming the youngest endowed professor at UTMB. All her professional work was motivated by the certainty that people of all circumstances should be able exercise freedom in their health decisions and follow their morals.

Suzanne’s love of Jesus Christ defined every aspect of her life and was the source and foundation for all the pleasures which she cherished in life, particularly her family. She married Douglas Matthew Linder in the church where they would later rejoice together in the baptism of their two children. A son named Ayrton Aleksandr, age 2, was an inexhaustible source of delight and a daughter named Nienna Lucia, age 8 months, brightened every day from waking to sleeping with constant laughter. Suzy is also survived by her doting parents, Sam and Renee Kneuper of New Braunfels, TX, her devoted sister and brother-in-law, Ava and Todd Veselis of Cypress, TX, her warm and pious grandmother Terry Zengler of New Braunfels, TX, and innumerable friends who respected and adored her. Many more would remember the grace she showed them in her actions and example but never knew her name.

Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from five o’clock in the afternoon until seven o’clock in the evening on Wednesday, October 15th, at the Bradshaw-Carter Home, 1734 West Alabama Street in Houston, where the Trisagion Prayers are to commence at half-past six o’clock.
The funeral service is to be conducted at ten o’clock in the morning on Thursday, October 16th, at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 3511 Yoakum Boulevard in Houston, where the Cathedral Clergy are to officiate. Immediately following the funeral service, all are invited to greet the family during a Makaria in the church hall at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral.
The interment will be the following day, Friday, October 17th, at St. Peter and Paul Cemetery in New Braunfels, Texas, at eleven o’clock in the morning.

In lieu of flowers, Suzy's family asks for donations to be made to International Orthodox Christian Charities (www.iocc.org), whose work supports now as she gladly did in life.
