Susan Holtman

April 9, 1958 — February 22, 2021


Susan Jane Holtman, 62, Merrill, passed away peacefully Monday, February 22, 2021 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Susan was born April 9, 1958 in Wausau to the late Robert James and Shirley Jane (Jaeks) Barrick.  She graduated from DC Everest high school and while working at federal mogul as an inspector she met Todd Holtman.  The couple began dating in November 1988 and on November 4, 1989 the couple married in Schofield.  They were blessed with two daughters; Melanie and Heather.

Susan was a very kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister.  She had a lot of love to share with family and friends and was very generous.  Despite her long journey with cancer, she was always positive and fought hard. One of Susan’s favorite times was vacationing in Kauai. She also enjoyed bobber fishing, crafting, gardening and garage sailing.

Susan is survived by her beloved husband of 31 years, Todd; daughters, Melanie (Brandon Marturano) Holtman and Heather (Brandon) Knoop; grandchildren, Aaron, Ashton and Audrinna; brothers, Joe (Patty) Barrick, Dave Barrick and Dan Barrick; and extended family and friends.

The family will have a private service at a later date for Susan.  Brainard Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at
