Suzanna “Pete” Grigsby

Sunday, April 29, 2018, our Heavenly Father called Pete to trade in her earthly dance shoes for the perfect dance floor awaiting in Heaven. Always goofy and a joy to those around her, Suzanna couldn’t help but to give first to others whether it was a dinner she shared at the table with her brothers, a friend in need of makeup, or a homeless person on the streets of New York City. In her giving ways and spiritual maturity, she had the forethought to be an organ donor, and she will now be able to give her life to others that she will never meet. Suzanna was a member of MPHS Tiger Dolls and Raeven Dance Factory.
