JUNEAU -- Susan K. Stolzman, of Juneau, passed away Tuesday, July 3, 2018, at Rainbow Hospice in Johnson Creek at the age of 71 years.
She was born July 17, 1946, in Appleton, the daughter of Levi and Margaret (nee Abendroth) Schroeder.
Sue was the loving wife to Jerome for 47 years and one week. She worked for 20 years at Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam. She was a fantastic homemaker and cook. Most of all, though, Sue was devoted to her three children, their spouses and her 10 grandchildren -- Shelley (Michael) Zarling and their four daughters, Abigail (Brandon) Eschbach, Miriam, Lydia and Gabrielle; Rebecca (Aaron) David and their three sons, Andrew, Benjamin and Alexander; and Patrick (Natalie) Stolzman and their two daughters, Ruby and Matilda, and a baby on the way.
The family is grateful that the Lord of grace made Sue His child in Holy Baptism. He kept her in that saving Christian faith until He took her to the warm and comfortable home in heaven He had prepared for her. Although, she is still wearing a sweater.
Sue was preceded in death by her parents, Levi and Margaret (nee Abendroth) Schroeder, and her sisters, Karen (Ed) Kapitzke and Jane Humpage. She is survived by her brothers, Ronald (Gerri) Schroeder, Richard (Patricia) Schroeder and Ed Humpage, and many cousins.
Visitation is today from 5-7 p.m. at the Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home in Juneau and Friday from 10-11 a.m. at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Juneau. A funeral service will follow at 11 a.m. at St. John’s. The Rev. David Brandt will officiate. Interment will be at St. John’s Cemetery, Juneau.
Memorials will be going to St. John’s Lutheran Church in Juneau, where Sue and Jerry had been members for 39 years; to Lakeside Lutheran High School, where their three children graduated from; and Second Harvest Food Bank (www.secondharvestmadison.org), which feeds hungry people, like Sue always liked to do.
The Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home-Juneau is serving the family.
