Anna Mae Marie Susor

May 6, 1931 — March 25, 2024

Neenah

Anna Mae Marie “Anna Mae” Seubert Susor, age 92, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2024. Anna Mae was born on May 6, 1931 to the late Leo and Manda (Linder) Seubert and grew up in Marathon, Wisconsin. She was married to Robert Paul “Bob” Susor and in 1950 they started their family in Wausau, Wisconsin. After moving to Iowa for a short time, they returned to Menasha to continue raising their family. They were married for almost 50 years and raised 8 children. Anna Mae had a strong connection with faith, family and food.

Faith played an important role throughout Anna Mae’s life. As a devout Catholic, she taught her children by her example and to have God be the center of their lives. She prayed the Rosary daily, gave of her time to those in need and volunteered at numerous activities at St. Mary’s and St. John’s in Menasha.

Anna Mae loved everything pertaining to food. Her delicious cooking and baking influenced her children to become great cooks also. She wrote recipes on whatever scrap of paper she could find, such as half-torn envelopes, photo albums and birthday cards. Up until she was in her 90’s, she thumbed through magazines, cookbooks, and watched food shows to gather ideas for her next creation. Her way of sharing what she was making was to shove food in your face saying ‘Here, just try a bite.’

Anna Mae made Christmas, birthdays, holidays and weekends up north with her children and grandchildren a special gathering time for family and eating. She loved to play cards, play slot machines, dance, gamble and garden as well as bowling and her weekly card club with her special friends.

‘WT’ was one of Anna Mae’s nicknames in the family which stood for ‘White Tornado’. It wasn’t just because of her white hair but also because she never sat down. She was a force to be reckoned with! Anna Mae put on a lot of miles as a waitress (and sometimes cook) in her 32 years at the Elks Club in Menasha and the Valley Inn in Neenah. Not only was she a top-notch waitress, she was always active; exercising, biking, and doing rummage sales and plant sales.

Gardening was Anna Mae’s passion. Whatever she grew in her garden became the marvel to all. Her green thumb created such beautiful plants that some referred to them as ‘Holy Hostas’. At 88, she started a garden at American Grand Assisted Living Facility. After harvesting her crops, she could be seen pruning bushes and pulling weeds at American Grand – to keep active and keep up her tan.

Anna Mae was a proud lady. She was a fashionista of her time. She told it like it was. She led by example; to have faith, to work hard, and to take care of one’s health. 

Being of service to others was a part of Anna Mae that stayed with her til the end. At 92, while at American Grand, she always made sure others were taken care of in the dining room; but this time when someone needed coffee she told her kids to go get it for them. Her kindness will not be forgotten.

She will be sadly missed by her children Linda (Robert) Gardinier, Mike (Brenda) Susor, Gene (Shelly) Susor, Rick Susor, Lisa (Pat) Haak, Jeff (Stacy) Susor and Scott (Sheila) Susor, 8 grandchildren Cory, Andy, Adam, Drew, Courtney, Sarah, Dustin, and Brianna and 7 great-grandchildren, her longtime companion Tom Woods as well as many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Robert Susor, son Patrick L Susor, and siblings Eileen (Arnold) Gassner, Lucille (Florian) Wisniewski, Lloyd Seubert and Harold (Phyllis) Seubert.

There will be a Memorial Mass on Saturday April 20, 2024 at 11:30 AM at St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish, 516 De Pere Street in Menasha with Fr. Larry Seidl officiating. There will be a visitation at the church preceding the Mass from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. There will be a gathering in celebration of her life at Holiday’s Pub and Grill, 1395 W American Drive in Neenah on from 1:00 to 4:00 PM
