Charyln Suarez

Charlyn Jill Suarez, age 39, passed away early September 2nd, 2016. She battled with lung cancer for about three years. She leaves behind a husband Dan, her two beautiful daughters Isabella and Katelyn, brothers Bill, Ben, and Michael, her mother Fe, cousins, extended family, and devastated friends, college and beyond, lucky enough to be part of her chosen family.

As an undergrad at UC Davis, Charlyn was an active member of Mga Kapatid and Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity. She made numerous lifelong friends through these organizations and with others on campus. She was easy to speak with and had a warm open straightforward nature and was exceptionally talented -- she studied genetics, programming and statistics at the undergraduate and graduate level. She worked as a postgraduate researcher in the Genetics Department at UC Davis, as a bioinformatician at Incyte, and as a programmer at a survey consulting firm.

But Charlyn also enjoyed hanging out and having fun, developing long lasting friendships at work and in the community. She had beautiful eyes, beaming when she made a funny joke or playful taunt. She was proud of her Filipino heritage and liked to throw daylong parties for friends and family with lots of good food and time to talk.

After having kids, Charlyn devoted her energies to being a full-time mother. She wanted her daughters to have a fun childhood and a strong foundation in school. Most importantly, she wanted them to discover what made them happy and to choose their own path. Charlyn was an active volunteer at Isabella and Katelyn's schools: the Davis Parent Nursery School and Fairfield Elementary School, where she enjoyed working with the kids and building friendships with other parents.
