Suzanne was the daughter of Allen and Fern Beaumont of Burlingame, Calif., where Suzanne grew up. Suzanne was educated at Occidental College, and received her bachelor's and master's degrees from Stanford University. She was a teacher by training and worked in public schools and for IBM. She was a stay-at-home mom for Marc and Scott, but also volunteered her time in the schools, her church and other community organizations.
