They celebrated 50 years of marriage and raised their seven children in Kingman. For five years, she and her husband owned and operated Esquerra's Sleep Boutique. Suzanne loved dancing and listening to music. Her hobbies included playing pool, dressmaking and baking cakes for family and friends.

Esquerra; children, Cledia (Robert Jensen) Esquerra-Jensen, Tina (Timothy Gunn) Esquerra, Edward Esquerra, Teresa (Manuel Sauceda) Esquerra, Anita (William Zwiers) Esquerra-Zwiers, Anthony Esquerra and daughter-in-law Kathryn Esquerra; and a brother, Darrel Kirk.
