Susan A. Dassler

Susan A. Dassler, age 73 of Beaver Dam, passed away on Friday, May 13, 2022, at the Beaver Dam Remembrance Home.

Susan was born on July 6, 1948, in Horicon, the daughter of John & Eleanor (Bassett) Stankiewcz.  She graduated from Horicon High School.  Susan was united in marriage to Frederick Dassler on November 23, 1979.  She was a long-time employee at Richelieu Foods in Beaver Dam.  She loved spending time with family, especially around the holidays.  The 4th of July was her favorite celebration, where she enjoyed setting off fireworks in the driveway for the entire neighborhood to enjoy.  She was a “professional” shopper and was continually coming up with new ways to remodel each room in the house.  She relished the annual summer vacations to Door County which included golf & endless shopping.  After retirement, she cherished the opportunity to volunteer in a kindergarten classroom in the Beaver Dam School District and was an avid member of the Red Hat Society.  She also enjoyed gardening, word searches and watching HGTV.

Susan is survived by her husband, Frederick Dassler; daughter Nicole (Jim) Pitzlin; son Nate (Cara) Dassler; grandchildren, Natalie Krezinski, Ethan Krezinski, Breelyn Dassler, and Kenslie Dassler; sister Jill (Bob) Schumacher; brother Tom Stankiewcz; and further survived by other relatives and friends.

Susan was preceded in death by her parents, parents-in-law Arthur and Harriet Dassler; brother-in-law Dayton (Patricia) Mortenson and other relatives.
