Suzanne was born to Ione Guinevere Campbell and Mr. Ahrens in Los Angeles, California on January 27, 1918. She had two brothers named Frank and Robert. Her parents got separated and she had to go to her grandmother in Los Angeles with her mother with brothers. Her elder brother Frank married a man named Guy Ridgway and they also adopted a child.
She got her early education in Los Angeles. However, she had to start working before even completing her education. She worked as an actress at a very young age of 15. She had to go alone to work in Hollywood while leaving her family back in Los Angeles.
Suzanne started working as an extra in various films. Her acting career wasn’t glamourous at all as she didn’t even get a chance for improvement for so many years in the start. She got the attention of the directors and the public just because of her beautiful features and appearance.
She was mostly cast in the roles of Mexican or Spanish girls due to which she faced difficulty in delivering dialogues. Despite being type-cast, she managed to work in some high-budget movies like “Calamity Jane”. She didn’t get much screen time in this but it helped her grow further. Eventually, she met a producer named Lindsley Parsons who got her a role in one great film “From Hell It Came.”
Finally, she got a proper role to play in “The Purple Gang” which was her husband’s film. She performed her character “Daisy” quite well. She was a girl who used to report fake crimes. So, when she finally saw a real crime happening in front of her eyes, nobody believed her.
The best thing about Suzanne is that she didn’t give up like many other actresses in Hollywood. She kept working and ended up performing different characters in more than 150 films. A few of her films include Suspicious, Cowboy, The Tijuana Story, Raintree Country, A Merry Mixup, Hollywood or Bust, Around the World in 80 days, Tension at Table Rock, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, Hot Stuff, The She-Creature, The Broken Star, Top Gun, The Fighting Chance, Sincerely Yours, and so many more.
Suzanne dated MGM comedian Rags Ragland. He was a former boxer by profession. They also had a child together. Soon, they decided to part ways in 1942.
Later, Suzanne married Jack Marquette, who was a cameraman and featured the Second World War. He also became the founder of Marquette Productions later. He directed the horror film ‘The Eye of the Satan’, ‘Teenage Monster’, and more. However, they decided to end their marriage in 1945.
Suzanne died at the age of 78 on May 6th, 1996 in Burbank, Los Angeles County, California, USA. She died of non-communicable disease.
Suzanne wasn’t active on any social media platform. The use of social media wasn’t common at that time which could be the reason for her inactivity on social media.
Suzanne was a very fine actress and model. She took the advantage of the opportunity she got to act in films. She had to face a lot of hurdles along the way. Still, she kept going and left a long-lasting legacy behind. Even after her death, she is ruling the hearts of countless fans for being the true and strong lady that she was.
