Susan A. Welniak


Of Milwaukee, passed away on September 8, 2022 at age 70. Loving mother of David (Cretia) Heinz and Carrie (Nakia) Robinson. Cherished grandmother of Zach, Tatiyanna, Gabrielle (aka Atlas), Corin, Mariah, Trent, Mia, and Ava. Great-grandmother of Kendall. Beloved sister of Dawn (Bob) Butler. Also survived by nieces, nephews, extended family, neighbors, and friends.

Preceded in death by her parents Edward and Jane Mageski, and her siblings Debbie and Steve Mageski.

Susan was incredibly hard working, employed as a Corrections Officer at Milwaukee County House of Corrections for 18 years. She was proud of her accomplishments, buying her home and car on her own and doing most of the remodeling herself. However, she was most proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild.

Susan was an animal lover, so much so that she would feed Oliver and Rocky treats in the heated bed at night. She loved to take Oliver on walks around the neighborhood to visit with everybody.

Susan also enjoyed quilting, and she was proud of all the pieces she created.



Interment at Forest Hill Memorial Park in Oak Creek at a later date.

    After living next door to Sue for the last 5 years. we grew close to her and her pets. We’ll always remember the funny conversations in the backyard and the way our dog would try to sneak into her house every time she was bringing in groceries.

    She was such a strong woman and is greatly missed.

    We were fortunate to have Sue as our neighbor for 12 years. She was friendly, kind, accepting, and a true pleasure to chat with across the fence. Sue always had a story to share about the history of her Bay View neighborhood, and enjoyed walking her Polish Prince (Oliver) everyday. She treated both Rocky & Oliver like royalty, frequently announcing “it’s snack time” for a mid-day treat. She will be very missed!

    Sue and I became friends in Germany. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing.

    I’m so sad to hear of her passing. Although I didn’t know her personally, I saw her every morning walking Oliver. I knew something happened when I hadn’t seen her for over a month. My condolences to the family.
