Suzanne White Feeney passed late Friday, February 21, 2020 with her sons by her side.
She was born March 7, 1953 in Rochester, New York, daughter of Richard and Janet White. She is predeceased by her parents and her brother, James Scott White.
She spent most of her life on Cape Cod, Massachusetts where she raised her two sons, married Brian Feeney, and cared for her aging parents and parents-in-law. There were easy years and hard years, but family always came first for Suzy. Through it all, even occasional homelessness, she always made sure her sons got to school on time (even if they didn’t want to). She never stopped bragging about them, even to the last hospice nurse she met.
After moving to Florida, Suzy felt she really came into her own. She loved Vero Beach and it’s community. She worked tirelessly on one community project after another. Suzy had a great talent for bringing the right people together to tackle a project, and was a visionary ahead of her time. How many grandmothers know what cryptocurrency is? Suzy knew 12 years ago.
She enjoyed taking walks on Round Island with her sons, and going to Disney character breakfasts with her grandchildren. Despite offers of plane tickets to come visit up north, she was adamant: “Uh-uh. I’m done with the cold! You come visit me.” With sunglasses and flip-flops, we obliged.
She is survived by her husband Brian Feeney; her son Brent Buddensee, daughter-in-law Melissa Buddensee, and grandchildren Brandelwyn and Arwyn Buddensee of Bethlehem, New Hampshire; her son Blake Buddensee, daughter-in-law Holly Buddensee, and grandchildren Daniel and Jacob Buddensee of Harwich, Massachusetts; and her nephew Jeremy White of Indiana.
In lieu of flowers, please donations may be sent in her memory to one of her beloved Vero Beach community projects:

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
