Obituary for Susan M. Dumke

Susan M. Dumke, 60 passed away unexpectedly on Monday, Feb 2, 2014. Susie was born to the late Alvin Sr. & Ruby Wasurick on August 1, 1954. Sue married the love of her life, John Dumke on June 5, 1976. Sue most enjoyed spending time with family & friends. She was surrounded by many nieces & nephews that she loved to spoil, always making each one feel as if they were her favorite. Sue always had a kind smile & word for everyone. She also enjoyed birds & flowers and always looked forward to the yearly family & friends camping trip to Shakey Lakes, MI. One of Sue & John’s favorite past times were antique collecting & searching for just the right pieces to add to their collections. John was an avid member of the Oconto Elks Lodge 887 & Sue proudly supported their projects both before & after John’s passing. The Packers were her favorite team to watch & she was disappointed by this season’s outcome. Susie especially looked forward to outings with her dearest friends Debi Shufelt, Debbie Brennan & Jan Paluch. During John’s illness Susie’s friendship with her closest high school friends Jane Carlin, JoAnne Moody & Mary Skaggs was rekindled which gave her much comfort & joy. Sue was employed with her husband John & brother-in-law Rich at Dumke Brothers Farm Equipment Sales & Service as the office manager for the past 25 years. Sue really enjoyed visiting with customers & suppliers that came into their business. They were always considered friends. Sue was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Oconto. She loved the early Sunday morning service & visiting with her church family. Sue also enjoyed the weekly bible study she attended with her Christian friends. After the loss of her beloved husband John in 2013 Sue found comfort in knowing Jesus & reading her Bible daily.
Sue is survived by her loving companion Jase (her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel), sisters Judy (Ken) LaFortune, Donna Bushmaker & Janey Belongia all of Oconto & brother James (Dede) Wasurick of Green Bay. Father & Mother-in Law Leo & Carroll Dumke of Oconto, brothers & sisters-in-law Richard (Wendy) Dumke, Sandy (Vic) Heitzkey, Barbara (Jim) Shufelt & Darlene (Paul) Meagher. She is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews & God-children. Sue was preceded in death by her husband John of 37 years, beloved pet cat of 20 years Sassy, her parents Alvin Sr. & Ruby (Reed) Wasurick, siblings Elizabeth (Betty) Wasurick, Alvin Jr & Marge Wasurick, Roger Wasurick, Jean Belland, Mary & Buel Mills and nieces & nephews.
