May 1, 1944 — Dec. 27, 2013

Suzanne Mattson Hagstrom, 69, of Placerville, Calif., formerly of San Jose and Alamo, Calif., passed away at home on Dec. 27, 2013, after a short, valiant battle with a rare, aggressive form of cancer. She touched many lives as a loving wife and mother, talented teacher, homemaker, dog-lover and friend to so many who will miss her dearly. We know she is now at peace and at home with her Lord.

Suzanne was born in Oakland, Calif., to Sanford and Mozelle (Hatton) Mattson. She graduated from San Ramon High School in 1962, where she sang in the school and a cappella choirs. She attended Diablo Valley College, then earned a degree in English from San Jose State University, and went on to complete her Elementary Education teaching credential. She enjoyed teaching second- through fourth-grades at Laneview Elementary School in San Jose for more than 25 years, where she made a difference in the lives of her many students. The friends she made when she was teaching continued to be close friends the rest of her life.

Suzanne met the love of her life, Wesley Hagstrom, in Lake Tahoe and they were united in marriage on Nov. 27, 1971. They welcomed Kara in 1975 and John in 1977 to their family in San Jose, Calif., where they lived until moving to their current home in Placerville in 1997. Throughout her life, Suzanne enjoyed spending time with her family, playing with her dogs, gardening, traveling, studying the Bible, singing, reading and spending summers and weekends with her family at Lake Tahoe. She was a member of Cold Springs Community Church in Placerville, where she enjoyed supporting a variety of church activities.

Suzanne was known for her dedication to her family and was a devoted Christian. She was an inspiration to all in how she handled multiple adversities with unfaltering perseverance, including dealing with her daughter’s disability and her ongoing struggle with multiple sclerosis, which added to the complications of her recent illness. She is survived by her husband, Wesley Hagstrom; her son, John; her daughter, Kara; her brother, Rex (Kay) Mattson; and the many friends and relatives who will miss her always-present smile. She was preceded in death by her parents.

For those who are interested, as an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be made in Suzanne’s name to Cold Springs Community Church, 2600 Cold Springs Road, Placerville, CA 95667, or the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Northern California Chapter, 1700 Owens Street, Suite 190, San Francisco, CA 94158.

A celebration of Suzanne’s life and private family burial services have been held. Condolences may be left for the family at greenvalleymortuary.com.
