Suzanne L. Mueller, age 76, of Nelson, WI passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 17, 2019 at her home surrounded by her family after a brief illness.
She was born on August 15, 1942 a daughter of the late Willard J. and Lila (Halverson) Moy.
Sue attended Pepin schools and graduated from Pepin High School with the class of 1960. Following her graduation, Sue began working at St. Elizabeth Medical Center.
Sue was united in marriage to Daniel A. “Dan” Mueller on July 22, 1961 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Pepin. To this union, two children were born. Dan preceded Sue in death on January 21, 2019.
As Sue worked, in the many different departments it was then she realized her appreciation for the healthcare profession and her desire to further her abilities. So, in 1983 she began her studies at Minnesota State Southeast Technical College and in 1984 graduated and earned her Associate’s Degree in nursing. After passing her State boards, Sue was issued her LPN license. Her nursing career, one of which she was honored and proud of, started right where her inspiration for healthcare began, St. Elizabeth’s. Sue took great pride as she cared and was an advocate for the residents of the St. Anne’s memory care wing at St. Elizabeth’s Healthcare Center. Sue retired in 2007.
Sue was an active member and recent President of the American Legion Auxiliary, Post 50 and the VFW, Post 4086 Burkhardt-Roemer Post both of Wabasha, MN.
She was also a proud and giving member of the St. Elizabeth’s Auxiliary.
Sue will long be remembered for her selfless and giving heart along with her care for those in need. The most treasured memory and legacy Sue leaves behind is the joy and love for her family, especially her ability to spoil her grand and great grandchildren.
Sue will be sadly missed by her son, Jeff (Wendy) and daughter, Jodi both of Nelson; 4 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; sister, Pat Miller of Sparta; also by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Besides her parents and husband Dan, Sue was preceded in death by a sister, Becky; a brother, Bill; brother in law, Richard “Frog” Miller and her very special friend, Marilyn Markey.
A celebration of life for Sue will be held and announced at a later date.
