THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Susan R. Anderson
Susan Rae Anderson of Peshtigo, beloved wife of James N. Anderson, passed away on October 12, 2017 after a long and hard battle with multiple sclerosis.
Susan was born on August 13, 1948 in Marinette, WI, daughter of the late Selmer and Ruby (Goldsmith) Neverman. Susan was a graduate of Peshtigo High School, class of 1966. She attended Spencerian Business College and after graduation was employed by the Peshtigo State Bank. Shortly after, she was hired by the Peshtigo School District as secretary to the Superintendent.
As her disease progressed and it became difficult to continue full-time employment, she worked part-time as a secretary in the high school guidance office until her departure in 1989.
Susan married James N. Anderson of Coleman on June 19, 1971 at Zion Lutheran Church in Peshtigo. Together they raised two daughters, Angela Anderson of Berlin, Germany and Gretchen Anderson (Lucas Thornton) of Eureka, California.
She enjoyed camping, family gatherings, card games, playing scrabble and all of her daughters' activities.
Susan's family survives along with sisters, Juliet Noel, Vicki (Brian) Mylener and Lisa (Gary) Carlson; a sister-in-law, Nancy Anderson; a brother-in-law, Steven (Sharon) Anderson; step mother-in-law, Fern Anderson; a step-sister-in-law, Ruby Fisher, step-brothers-in-law, Wayne and Curt Galien; nieces, Sara, Megan, Elizabeth, Amanda, Jennifer and Shana; nephew Nicolai and their families, as well as many extended family members and friends.
Susan was preceded in death by her parents, Selmer and Ruby; father-in-law, Norman Anderson; mother-in-law, Lenore Smith; brothers-in-law, John Noel and Gerald Anderson and nephews, Curtis Noel and Cody Anderson.
A celebration of life will take place between close family and friends. The family requests any memorial gifts be given to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Berth and Rosenthal Funeral Home of Peshtigo is assisting the family.
