For over 35 years Sue volunteered as a manager of rummage sales to benefit Martin Luther High School. For many years, she did personal catering, providing unique and delicious hors d’oeuvres to parties in private homes.
Sue lived her Christian faith in all that she did. She had a servant heart and regularly put the needs of others ahead of her own. She was fun-loving, outgoing, always cheerful, and seldom missed an opportunity to tease. She loved taking her grandchildren to shows and outings and is dearly loved by all of them. Her extended family and her many friends will miss her caring, her stories, her laugh, her spunk, and her quick wit.
If so desired memorials to the Lutheran High School Association of Greater Milwaukee.
