Age 87 Loved by her husband Dick for more than their 60 years of marriage. Dick tenderly and single handedly cared for Suzie throughout her Alzheimer's disease. Suzie will be missed by her children and grand children who will forever cherish all the skills and lessons she taught them. Children and grand children are Rick Floeder; Beth (Floeder) Schaffer, husband Dan, children John, Bill and wife Beth (Galloway), and Tom; Chris (Floeder) Williams, husband Rick, children Nick and Hannah; Jeff Floeder; Tim Floeder, wife Debra (Odebraski), children Rachel, Andrew and David; Mary Floeder; and, Karen Floeder and husband Peter Moody. Suzie was generous with her sewing and knitting gifts; everything from wedding dresses and Irish sweaters to Halloween costumes and Xmas stockings, and also afghans and dish cloths for church bazaars. If Suzie wasn't at home, she was likely at church for services, helping in the office, or cooking for a special event. Her bridge partners miss her mastery of the game and laughter when taking all the tricks. Suzie's rapport with children extended to her work at Sibley High School in the library. Suzie, the calm, quiet, fair, hard-working, beautiful, woman who always offered and provided will be missed by many. Think of her whenever you enjoy ice cream because Suzie loved her ice cream.
