April Hall of Fame Resident of the Month

4/1/2021

Congratulations to the 2021 April Resident of the Month - Debbie Suvak!

I have been a proud Seven Hills Resident since I was 14 years old. 

I attended Hillside Junior High and graduated from Normandy in 1981. Always an avid artist, I was honored to be asked to paint a mural at both of these schools, including the Normandy Invader mural that graced the front hall of the high school. I was surprised to see both murals were still on the walls when my children attended the schools.

I met my husband, Jeff Suvak, also a Seven Hills resident, in those years. We married, built our home, and happily raised our family here. You could always find us on one sports field or another -- first playing co-ed softball at Valleywood, then coaching girls' basketball, volleyball, and softball, and ultimately in the bleachers cheering for our kids and their teams. We have made many friends and great memories along the way. 

When my children were older, I served on the Seven Hills Recreation Board for many years and I was also a member of the Seven Hills Hall of Fame Committee.

I still find ways to create. Those who know me know I love to cook. I have a deep passion for food and love making new dishes from scratch and sharing these meals with family, friends, and neighbors. I also love to create large appetizer platters. I recently participated in the Favorite Chef Competition where I took third in my group. 

During COVID, I channeled my creative energy into creating large balloon displays to help neighbors and little ones in our family celebrate birthdays and other special events from their front yards. My other interests include fishing, skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, gardening, running, and biking. We are a very active family.

Our children Jeff, Jessica, and Jamie have fond memories of being raised in this community. I am proud to be from Seven Hills and couldn't imagine a better community in which to live, play, and raise our family.
