Horrific car accident claims life of Eumundi Resident Suzi Latimer
Eumundi resident Suzi Latimer, 49 died at the intersection of Eumundi Noosa Rd and Don Napier Rd on August 24, 2016.
Suzi, a long term resident of Eumundi, tragically lost her life in an horrific road accident on Wednesday 24 August 2016 in Eumundi, Queensland. She was driving home from work on her way to pick up her family for dinner to celebrate her mother’s birthday.
A Go Fund Me page set up by her sister, Lizie with $21,085 already raised in 36 hours of $18k goal for the family (30/08/2016) 2.36pm
"Suzi was in her car waiting to turn into the street where she’d lived for 14 years, when a car hit her from behind and pushed her into the path of an oncoming 4WD. Although wearing her seatbelt, the impact ejected Suzi from her car and she was unable to be revived at the scene. Suzi left our world at just 49 years young, and leaves behind a devastated family who are struggling to comprehend a life without her shining light in their lives. Suzi’s husband, Toby, is at home and trying to focus on comforting and supporting their two beautiful young children through the unimaginable pain of losing their mother whilst also trying to grieve the loss of his best friend and longstanding partner.

Suzi worked for an Aboriginal community health organisation and was always the first one to offer whatever she could to help others, with the ability to make the lost feel found and give to those with little. Whatever she had she would share with others and always made time for her family, friends and community. Suzi loved to laugh and be surrounded by her friends and family. Suzi was the personification of generosity."
The Eumundi Community and from afar have been shaken with the awful news.
Many have taken to Facebook to express their grief.
We lost a beautiful friend last week. Suzi made me laugh so much with her wit and dry humour, we shared many deep philosophical raves and her wise words return to me often and guide me through the occasional darkness. I feel blessed to have known and spent some amazing times with her at Byron / Noosa, with an awesome group of Mama bears.
So much love to her family and close friends xxx.

I am so saddened to hear this dreadful news. My mother went to school with Suzi's Mum and then Suzi and I were friends at Abbotsleigh and had only recently friended each other on Fb. May Suzi be forever remembered and may she rest in peace
My darling Suzie. I only recently connected with Suzie from our long ago days in Singapore. I asked was she still "interesting and out there" as she had been whilst in Singapore. Gorgeous, creative, free spirited, boundary pusher and all round lovable. Suzie replied, "no I'm now just an ordinary boring Mum."These two words do not go together at the mention of her name and from all the beautiful comments it seemed nothing changed. Beautiful Suz. another angel in heaven certainly gone too soon.xxxx
Bodhi. My thoughts are with you all at this very sad time. It is such a tragedy. I have very fond memories of your gorgeous mum. You are doing her proud, get that message out there.
Oh bohd, she was an extremely strong and loving women. She's such a beautiful soul and will be missed dearly. Give my love to your dad and maya
Bodhi, Toby and Maya; I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember your mother as a bright spark, a shining individual who added to the world in a positive way. She loved you all. Her loss will shake all of us. Our thoughts are with you.
Oh my goodness Bohdi and Maya I'm so terribly sad for your loss. I went to school with your mum - she has stayed in my memory as someone who always made me laugh. Hoping she rests peacefully and you both rejoice in her love of you xx
