Suzanne Kahn Franklin
December 26, 1944 - December 4, 2022


Suzanne Kahn Franklin,77, Born December 26, 1944 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Suzanne grew up in Tucson, Arizona before moving to Memphis, Tennessee with her life long spouse Dr. David Franklin. They met as teenagers never missing a day without each other.

Suzanne was active with family activities and worked as the business manager of their dental practice. She had a passion to read and do research on a wide variety of topics that was impressive to all. Suzanne was revered as the most kind and loving person. Everyone she came in contact recalls her being an absolute lady. Suzanne spent her entire life with her dog companions who brought her unconditional happiness and was always sure to give them an extra muffin here and there.

After 50 years of practice both Suzanne and David retired to Tampa, Florida. Moving to Florida put Suzanne closer to the beach, one of her favorite places. Suzanne is survived by her husband (David) and two dogs, Duke and Prince as well as children Barry (Joanne) & Gary (Yon) along with four grandchildren Avery (Taylor), Jordan, Samantha and Mitchell.

In lieu of flowers, Suzanne’s memory would be honored with a donation to the Humane Society Tampa Bay.
