Suzanne Elaine DeMond (nee Poole), 66, formerly of Beloit and Waukesha, passed away at her Green Bay home under hospice and family care Sunday, March 14, 2010, after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

Sue was born Feb. 8, 1944, in Beloit, the daughter of Bernard and Audrey Reuteler Poole.

Upon retiring in 2003, Sue and her husband moved to Green Bay to be with their family.

Sue was an active member in The Peoples Church in Beloit, St. Markís Lutheran Church in Waukesha and Union Congregational Church in Green Bay. She served her communities as a hospice volunteer and Sunday school teacher, and Sue enjoyed oil painting, horseback riding and spending time with her family.
