Susanne Quade

Susanne Quade of New Berlin passed away peacefully on May 11, 2016, at the age of 53 years. She was born in Waukesha, the daughter of Joseph and Jean Richardson.

She was a people person and enjoyed outdoor music concerts, cooking and fresh flowers from her garden that she was very proud of. Susanne loved animals — she had many ferrets and fish. Most of all she loved spending time with family and friends.

Susanne will be sadly missed by her son, Christopher (Brittany) Dawson of Waukesha; grandchildren, Leah and Lucas; her parents, Joseph and Jean; and brother, Thomas Richardson. She is further survived by her husband and best friend, Joe Quade; close friends, Mandy and Jackie; her dog, Gypsy; and other relatives and many friends.

Susanne’s wishes were to have an outdoor gathering celebrating her life, which will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family would be appreciated in care of the Cesarz, Charapata & Zinnecker Funeral Home, 237 N. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, WI 53188.
