Susan Detert

January 10, 1953 — September 19, 2022


Susan M. Detert, age 69, passed away on September 19, 2022, in Wausau, Wisconsin after fighting a long battle of dementia and cancer.

Susan was born on January 10, 1953, to the late Wally and Maryann (Haas) Detert. After completing high school, she went on to attend Northcentral Technical College and became an LPN for Aspirus for 20 years. Susan was a loving and caring mother and friend who is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Travis and Courtney Detert, and siblings Jeffrey Detert, Joann (Jodi) Siedel, Brian Detert, and Todd Detert. She is preceded in death by her parents and her niece, Siarra Detert.

Thank you, friends and family alike, for the out-pouring of love, support, and wonderful anecdotes about our beloved Sue; a very special thank you to the care team at Wausau Manor for keeping her comfortable even in the worst of her remaining days.
