She was 74 years old. Susan had been battling serious medical issues in recent years, and her courage in facing life's challenges with grace was an inspiration to all who knew her.
She was born on April 22, 1948, in Algoma, WI., Susan was the daughter of Melvin and Regina Stika. After graduating from Algoma High School in 1966, she began her career as a clerk in the Industrial Engineering Department of Charmin Paper. Susan married her childhood crush, Joseph Piette, on December 21, 1968, and together they started a family. Susan then became a full-time stay-at-home mom and housewife, dedicating herself to raising her children. She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, and tending to her yard. She also enjoyed spending time outdoors with her husband during hunting season and camping with their children during the summers. As they got older, they cherished their time together at their cabin.
