Sue Weiss (Betty Jeanne, nee Borchardt, Weiss) died on April 13, 2023 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was born to Helen V. (nee Meyer) and Albert A. Borchardt March 24, 1930 in West Bend, Wisconsin.
Susie married her true love Robert M. Weiss (deceased) on February 7, 1948. Sue is survived by one brother, A. David Borchardt of Elm Grove, WI; her children, Lynn (Bill) Overton, of Holts Summit, MO; Beth (Bob) McAllister of Middleville, MI; and Bob (Kim) Weiss, of Grand Rapids, MI, 2 granddaughters, 5 grandsons, 8 great-grandsons and 3 great-granddaughters, step grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Sue was an artist who never stopped painting, drawing, and taking lessons until her last years. Her painting was chosen for the stained-glass design on the doors to the Chapel of Beacon Hill Eastgate. They featured her watercolor paintings in several art shows, and several grace the homes of her family members.
Susie was loved by her many friends, was a wonderful cook and loved having friends and family for meals and celebrations of holidays and friendships. She took advantage of opportunities to travel to visit friends and family, and also see the great works of famous artists in Paris. She was preceded in death by many dear friends and loved ones and found that living into her 90’s without Bob and her friends was a daily test in finding her joy – which she did. Sue was a strong and true believer in Jesus and loved the comfort in knowing Him and his mother, Mary.
A funeral Mass will be held at St. Stephen Catholic Church on Tuesday, April 25 at 2:00 pm, followed by a private family celebration of her life. Sue will be buried beside her beloved husband at Holy Angels Cemetery, West Bend, Wisconsin.
