  1. I knew Susie quite well as hairdresser and friend.
    She was the most caring and fun lady I ever knew…
    Always a smile for everyone. Also, very good to my
    Sister Shirley and finding time for her. Thank you Susie!

  2. I was on a bowling team with Suzie and LOVED it! Especially when we went to state bowling together…such a good time! Suzie and Carol Melby Hestekin would ride the bus from Whitehall to Eau Claire for their nights out on the town and return to Whitehall on the same bus later the same night…Suzie told me it was the best way to get out and back home safe. (no drunk driving for these two girls!) I still remember when she told me about the guy driving the bus…Scott Morris…She said “I really like this guy!!” I will always cherish her for her dry humor and her upbeat style. So much fun!! It’s cruel her life was burdened by illness…she was so proud of her boys…I will miss her…All My Sympathy…Kay Boland.

  3. Susie was a very sweet gal. Her laugh was infectious and she was fun to be around. I knew who she was for many years but just got to know her the last five or so years. I wish I would have known her longer and spent more time with her. She is sadly missed.

  4. Her WHS Class of 1978 shares in your grief. Susie was a kind, sweet soul, with a laugh I will always remember. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone.
