Susan Kay Boesche


Susan was born on Feb 10, 1951 at the Glencoe Hospital in McLeod Co Minnesota to parents Victor Martin and Laura Marie Boesche. Susan died peacefully at her home in Buffalo City, Wisconsin on February 24, 2022 in the presence of loved ones. 

Susan was baptized on March 4, 1951 by Rev Alfred Streufert and confirmed on May 23, 1965 by Rev L.E. Vogel, both at First Lutheran Church in Glencoe. She graduated from Glencoe High School June 2, 1969 and attended the University of Minnesota the following year.

Susan’s heart was devoted to her family and friends; she cherished the time they spent together. She also loved to travel, visiting new and familiar places. Susan found joy working with and flying hot air balloons with long-time friends and family. She participated in many hot air balloon festivals across the country over the years. She was very artistic and loved spending time creating beautiful stained glass designs, picture framing, sewing and so much more. She loved sending cards and giving gifts to family and friends, often something she hand crafted. Susan enjoyed collecting swans, a hobby that may have started from her amazing view of the river from her home in Buffalo City.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Victor and Laura Boesche, her sister JoAnn Eskelson, JoAnn’s husband Harvey and their son Scott, and Brother in-law Kyle Hegna.  

She is survived by brothers, Gerald (Nancy), Alan (Sheila), Mark (Christine), Kevin (Gayle), Robert (Nancy), sister Patricia Hegna, many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Susan was blessed to spend many years with her special friend Tom Jensen. They shared many joyous occasions and he was with her every step of the way through her long battle with cancer.  

The family will be having a celebration of life to honor Susan on April 22, 2022 from 4 to 8 PM with a prayer service at 7 PM at the Johnson McBride funeral home.
