Susan “Sue” Janice (Hirschfeld) Meek, 73, passed away on April 28, 2018 in Cape Coral, Florida with her family at her side.  Sue was born to the late Alfred and Winifred Hirschfeld in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 25, 1944.  When Sue was 13 years old she moved with her family to Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  On September 10, 1966 she married the love of her life, Don Meek.  On August 14, 1968 Sue and Don were blessed with a daughter, Kathy.  While in Cedar Rapids, Sue enjoyed running her Diet Center franchises and in the mid-1990’s Sue was awarded the Distinguished Operations Award by Diet Center Corporate for the best owner-managed Diet Center within a region of 140 centers.  Sue moved to Cape Coral, Florida with her husband Don in 2005 and became members of the Faith Presbyterian Church of Cape Coral.  Our beloved Sue enjoyed her days with her husband Don in Cape Coral going out on their boat; enjoying cocktails out on their lanai; laughing together; taking care of their two Shih Tzu’s, Max and Mandy; and her daily phone calls with her daughter, Kathy.  Preceding her in death were her parents Al and Winnie Hirschfeld.  Sue is survived by her husband, Donald “Don” Meek of Cape Coral, Florida; her daughter Kathryn “Kathy” Sue (Peter) Marquis of Atlanta, Georgia; grandson Jack Marquis; and brothers Robert Hirschfeld (Maggie) of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Donald Hirschfeld (Debra) of Dallas, Texas.  A memorial service will be held at Faith Presbyterian Church, 4544 Coronado Pkwy, Cape Coral, FL 33904 on Saturday May 12 at 2:00 pm, followed by a reception.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Sue’s memory may be made to Faith Presbyterian Church.  Information about the church may be found at www.fpcfl.org.

    Don and Kathy,
    I was sorry to see of Susan's death. I recall with fondness your participation in St. Paul's Church. I deeply appreciated all the help you have been to me Don. Your willingness to assume chairmanship of the Administrative Board was much appreciated by me. You were most helpful. I can only imagine what an empty place this leaves in your life, but be assured that God's comfort and presence will be with you, especially in these difficult days as you adjust to this great loss.

    So saddened to see Sue's obit in the Gazette today. She always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face. I went to her Diet Center in Cedar Rapids off and on for a couple years. She helped me so much. I also worked for her for a short-time in her expanded store/smoothies shop. She had a laugh that would light up a room. I am so sorry to hear this. She always spoke of Don and her daughter Kathy. My heart goes out to family and friends.

    Even though Sue was a year behind me at Jefferson High School, I remember her smile and great personality. I know why Sue was awarded the Distinguished Operations Award, I'm sure her personality and friendliness made it real easy for her to communicate that with her customers at the Diet Center. So sorry for your loss, sending prayers for your family. God Bless.

    So sorry to hear this news. My daughter, Keely and Kathy, were good friends at WHS. I was a client of Sue’s at the Diet Center. Sue was a wonderful woman and full of life. She will be missed.

    So sorry to hear this. Sue and I were friends before she married Don. She called and asked how to make mashed potatoes as making supper for Don. Later called me in tears.
    They are brown she said. I said did you peel them? "You didn't tell me too" said Sue. She was great. Prayers to Don and all the family.
