Susan "Sue" A. Bliss

February 2, 1952 — June 14, 2023

Wausau

Susan (Sue) Bliss, age 71, also known as Sweet Sue, a loving and devoted wife, mother, aunt, sister and friend, passed away June 14, 2023.

Sue was born in Medford, WI to Wilfred and Elaine Kramer and grew up in Wausau, graduating from Wausau High School. Sue married John (Jack) Bliss on November 8, 1985 in Wausau.

For forty years Sue worked as a legal secretary and law office manager; she was the fastest typist in Wausau. After retirement she volunteered for many years at Aspirus Hospital, where she spread candy and cheer. She was an avid reader, loved singing with her sisters on holidays and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was known far and wide as Aunt Sue, a role she was very devoted to; her license plate even reads "Aunt Sue."

She was preceded in death by her parents Elaine and Wilfred Kramer, her brother Bill Kramer, brother-in-law Chuck Gehrke, and her father-in-law John Bliss.

Sue is survived by her husband, Jack Bliss of Wausau, her son Bob Bloch (Tami) of Aniwa, a daughter, Vanessa Bliss (Owen) of Baltimore, MD, three grandchildren, Garitt Bloch of Wausau, Caspar and August Gray, both of Baltimore, her sisters Debra Leitermann of Schofield and Diane Dalnodar (Mike) of Stevens Point, her brother Mike Kramer (Jody Schroeter) of Wausau, her sister-in law Pat Gehrke of Atlanta, Barbara Frey (Fred) of Door County, and her mother-in-law Patricia Bliss of Wausau, as well as many loved nieces and nephews.
