Sue was born on Sept. 16, 1948, to Glenn N. and Shirley M. (nee: Krohn) Olson in Racine. She grew up in Racine and graduated from William Horlick High School in 1966.
Sue lived in various group homes as an adult and had been a resident at Prospect Heights Community Care Center in Racine since 1998. Sue considered Prospect Heights to be her home. She had many friends, and excellent care by the staff of Prospect Heights. She felt safe there, and rarely left the facility. She enjoyed art and especially liked to play bingo.
Sue is survived by her sister-in-law, Rebecca Olson, and by several cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents, Glenn and Shirley; and by her brothers, Jonathan and David.
A celebration of Sue’s life will be held at 10 a.m. on June 22 at the Wilson Funeral Home with Pastor Ethan Davis officiating. Family and friends are invited to a time of visitation at the funeral home from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service. Interment will be at West Lawn Memorial Park.
