Suzanne Marie ‘Suzie’ (Plutko) Jones
May 1, 1950 – Oct. 7, 2021
Suzanne Marie “Suzie” (Plutko) Jones, 71, Clayton, N.C., formerly of Altoona, passed away peacefully Thursday in Raleigh, N.C., after a brief battle with cancer. Suzanne was born in Altoona, daughter of the late Joseph G. and Rose M. (Pawlowski) Plutko.
She is survived by her loving husband of 23 years, Ronald Michael Jones; two sons and their wives, Matthew J. and Beth A. Quatrara of Charlottesville, Va., and Nicholas J. and Courtney L. Quatrara of Wake Forest, N.C.; along with five grandchildren: Lucas A. and Michael W. of Charlottesville, Va., and Anna Rose, Eleanor J. and Joseph R. of Wake Forest, N.C.
Suzanne was a graduate of Bishop Guilfoyle High School, class of 1968. She retired in 2015 after a lifelong career in banking/lending. Suzi enjoyed reading, puzzles, baking and crocheting, but nothing gave her more joy than being a wonderful and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and dog mom.
The family welcomes all to join for the graveside service to be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, at Alto-Reste Park Cemetery, 109 Alto-Reste Park, Altoona. Father Michael Scalzi will be officiating.
