In Memory of Susan Fields

Susan Dorothy Fields, age 71 of New Richmond, Wisconsin, formerly of Houlton, passed away May 11, 2021 at her home surrounded by family.  Sue was born November 20, 1949 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Emil and Dorothy (Koke) Johnson. She graduated from Harding High School and continued her education by taking several nursing classes at 916.

Sue worked for many years as a telephone receptionist for St. Croix Orthopedics, now Twin Cities Orthopedics.

Sue loved her family and relished in spending time with her grandchildren. She bestowed on them the truest examples of unconditional love and selflessness. Sue was fond of playing slot machines, and her casino tours included stops in Danbury, Turtle Lake, and Hayward.

    • When you loose a special friend there is a emptiness in your heart. I will miss her so very, very much. Such a super woman. She loved Cardinals and am hoping that “When I see a cardinal appear in my yard, it is a visit from Susie from Heaven”. Perhaps that will help fill the emptiness that is there. Love you wonderful lady. Mary Jean
