Susan S. "Sue" Carlson Notice
Carlson, Susan S. "Sue" (Nee Smith ) 74, formerly of Whitefish Bay and Cedarburg, passed away on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, with all her children present to hold her hand and give her a kiss goodbye. Sue was born on November 21, 1939 in Schenectady, New York. In 1960, she married Richard John Carlson. They began their family and life adventures in many states, including South Carolina and rural Ohio, before moving to Wisconsin in 1980. Sue was an avid book reader and collector. You could often find her sitting on the floor in used bookstores, paging through fiction, biographies and art books to explore the limitless world around her. She was loved by so many for her fascinating stories, her passion for life, her endearing humor and her fierce independence. Sue is survived by her son Eric (Briget) Carlson of Milwaukee; Sven Carlson of Milwaukee; Kristina (Steve) Hanley of St. Louis, Missouri; and Monika (Randy) Roth of Shorewood; twelve grandchildren who will always love and miss her and one great-grandchild. Sue was preceded in death by her loving husband. She is further survived by other loving relatives and friends. Visitation will be held at the Funeral Home on Sunday, May 4, 2014, from 1 PM until 2:45 PM with Funeral Services beginning at 3PM. Private burial at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Cedar Grove. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to be made to The Milwaukee Public Library Foundation by visiting their donation page at:
