Susan Marie Keller

Susan Marie Keller, age 73, of Iron Ridge drifted into her eternal rest on August 30, 2020 at her home with her family by her side.

She was born the daughter of Elon ‘Zeke’ and Zatha Darlene (Welch) Walter in Stevens Point, Wisconsin on August 9, 1947. Sue’s father Zeke was relocated to Mayville for work in 1963. She was a 1965 graduate of Mayville High School.

Sue was united in marriage to William (Bill) Keller Jr. on August 14, 1965 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Iron Ridge, and she truly loved all of the 55 years of marriage to her loving husband Bill.

Sue had done many things over the years, but her passion was taking care of those who were ill and/or in failing health, and often went out of her way to do so. She did all of this from the goodness of her heart.

As a faithful member of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, another joy for Sue was being a member of the ladies aide group where she helped to plan, prep, and serve countless funeral luncheons and Holiday meals for her fellow parishioners.

Whatever the need, she was always there to lend a helping hand.

Sue loved her family, and especially loved taking care of her grandchildren, “adopted” grandchildren, and recent great grandchildren.

Sue is survived by her husband Bill Jr. of Iron Ridge. Her children William Keller III of Iron Ridge, Katheryn Merkes, of Horicon, and Dean Keller of Iron Ridge, her grandchildren Jason (fiancé Kelly) Keller, William ‘Chaz’ (special friend Ashley) Keller IV, and Kaleena (Sean) Baker, Rayna Merkes, David (fiancé Holly) Keller, Alyssa (special friend Michael) Keller, and John (special friend Lilly) Keller, and her great grandchildren Damien (8) and Oliver (1).

Her siblings Nancy (Walter) Peterson of Stevens Point, George (Anita) Walter of Stevens Point, Edward (Diana) Walter of Stevens Point, Marion ‘Salty’ (Aggie) Walter of Mayville, and Linda (Jack) Eickendorf  of Stevens Point.
