  1. So sorry to hear of Susan’s passing. She was a wonderful baby sitter for my children. We were neighbors in Gillett for many many years.

  2. My sympathy to Susan’s family. I worked with Sue for many years at the Social Security Admin in Green Bay, also one of her luncheon buddies monthly. Will miss her at our gatherings. So sorry for your loss.
