Biography:
Sue grew up in Chicago. She met her husband, Dan, when he was on a high school field trip to Chicago from Belle Plaine, IA. Sue’s mom instantly knew she met “someone” that day. Dan and Sue became pen pals while Dan was in the Navy and he stopped in Chicago every chance he was able. They were married on December 29, 1961. They have two children – Tim and Karen. Sue was a lifelong registered nurse – practicing floor nursing, teaching and then finding her passion with case management. She was Illinois’ Case Manager of the Year in 1996. She was very active in Berry Methodist Church (Chicago) in her youth, Luther Memorial Church (Chicago) in her adult life and for the past 12 years at St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church (Naperville). At Luther Memorial, she was very active in the church choir and handbell choirs. She was an unofficial parish nurse, always helping others in the congregation. For 25 years, she volunteered one week a summer at Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center as a camp nurse. LOMC held a very special place in her heart.

Sue was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, cousin, nurse and friend to whomever she met.
