Susan J. Olsen, 83, of New Berlin, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2022.
Dear mother to her children Jay (Julie) Graupp, Julie (Brian) Roepke, Catherine (Mark) Henke, Cheryl Antony and step-son Bryan (Diane) Olsen. She is further survived by her cherished grandchildren Mitchell (Rita) Henke, Kelsey (Ryan) Cvecko, Sarah Rowley, Kate Roepke, Connor Henke, Heidi Graupp, Eryn Roepke, Taylor Antony and her first great-grandchild Piper Cvecko.
Born in Milwaukee, she graduated from Pius XI High School and became an art student at Mount Mary College. Her passion was pencil sketching, of which she left behind many beautiful pieces that reflect her talent. She loved nature photography, gardening and traveling to Florida and Jamaica with Rog. Sue was an avid photographer her entire adult life. She retired from both The Principal Financial Group and Advanced Health.
In her later years, she was diagnosed with dementia. Sue’s personality, sense of humor and sassiness shined all throughout her illness. The family would like to thank Linden Court – New Berlin and Heartland Hospice for the care they provided her in her final years.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Roger, her parents Charlotte and Walter Carroll Jr. and first husband Anthony Graupp Jr.
Visitation at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at Krause Funeral Home, 12401 West National Avenue, New Berlin, Wisconsin. Memorial service to follow at 4:00 PM.
“Mom, we know you’re at peace now, holding hands with your dear husband Rog. We will always love you and remember how you found beauty in everyone and everything.”
