Susan C. Black (nee Schipper), age 77, of Dousman,passed away peacefully Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at Masonic Healthcare Center in Dousman.

Susan was born on June 29, 1943, to James and Beverly Schipper in Milwaukee.

She graduated Delavan Darien High School in 1962. She then went on to UW-Madison and graduated with a nursing degree in 1966. She started her rewarding nursing career at St. Joseph’s working in the mom/baby unit, which led to the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) at Sinai and West Allis. She loved going to various restaurants with her friends and then heading to The Rep to see a play.

Coaching her Brewers and Packers was a favorite pastime along with attending her Alma Mater in Madison to cheer the Badgers to victory! She enjoyed teaching Sunday school at Bridge Church, and her faith in Jesus has brought eternal life with Him. Her smile and laugh will be missed by everyone that knew and loved her.
