Susanne Eileen (Steinbach) Rotsch

March 20, 1946 — May 4, 2024

Susanne Eileen (Steinbach) Rotsch of Sun Lakes, AZ and Aitkin, MN was welcomed into her next adventure on May 4, 2024 after complications with diabetes, heart, and kidney failure.  As always, her loving husband, James, was at her side.  She was 78.  


Susanne was born in Wausau, Wisconsin on March 20, 1946.  Her early years were spent across many Wisconsin and Minnesota locations.  She graduated from Alexander Ramsey (Roseville) High School and W.R. Harper College in Chicago.  Previously she had been employed by Northwest Airlines as a flight attendant until her husband’s work brought the family to Chicago.  Susanne was a wonderful homemaker and mother.    


Susanne was a person of strong will and could always be depended on.  Attending the activities of her children and grandchildren were of great joy and importance to her.  She always wanted to be in on the action.  One of Susanne’s favorite accomplishments was acting in community theater productions while living in Grand Forks, ND and Rochester, MN.  She enjoyed living an active life, especially at their Lone Lake cabin where she swam, waterskied, golfed, and paddle boarded.  Yearly family ski trips to Vail are favorite memories.  Upon retirement, Susanne and Jim built a home in Sun Lakes, AZ, and enjoyed activities with friends for the past twenty winters.  


Susanne was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Penny Steinbach.  She is survived by her loving husband, Jim; sister: Carrie (Steinbach) Altintop; their three children: Michael (Joanne), Krysta (David) Farrell, and John (Tammy) Lawton; five grandchildren: Ava, Owen, Elle, Laura, Cal; two great-grandchildren: Johnny Rae, Blair Morgan.


A private family gathering will take place at a later date.
