On April 15, 2019, a great and loved woman, wife, mom (to many), teacher, granny, grandmother and best friend, Susan L. Koehler, 67, who was born on February 19, 1952 to the late Percy and Janet Patenaude, received her wings as God called her home. Though she will be greatly missed, especially those long talks, loving criticisms (when we needed it) and most amazing heartfelt hugs that always made you know everything was going to be okay, we know she is in a better place with no pain and tiredness and she is still here living within each of our hearts she touched and lives she helped mold with her love. Among those are her loving husband, Glenn Koehler (Papa to all); stepmother, Patricia Patenaude; sons, Rick, Robert, Doug and Bill; daughters, Joyann, Cindy, June, Karen and Teri; sister, Carla, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. It will be both interesting and fulfilling when we get there to see her again and see exactly what a true County Bumpkin looks like with wings. But until then we will feel the sunshine from her smile and be calling the phone in heaven each and every day. We hope they have multiple lines up there, they will be needing them.
A private family celebration of life will be held in lieu of a service. Thank you to everyone for all the love and prayers sent our way, and to all who knew and love her, let each day be filled with love and happy memories of what she left with you rather than saddened by what we are without.
