Sue was best known as Grandma Sue and loved to spoil her grandchildren and any kids that came over. Not only was she a wife, she was a partner in life. She took on many hobbies over the years which included: ceramics, painting, knitting, camping, fishing, and quilling. Sue mostly enjoyed watching her birds, gardening; fruits, veggies and flowers. She spent many hours tending to her gardens and canning all the fruits of her labor in the fall. Everyone loved to gather at her house during holidays and hunting season. She would always make sure everyone left full. Now we will all be filled with her memories.
The family would like to thank the entire staff at Theda-Care, Appleton for the care given to Sue. Holly Funeral Home in Waupaca is assisting the family with arrangements.
