July 11, 1939 ~ July 3, 2020

Suzanne Lee Michaud, 80, of Sturgeon Bay, died early Friday morning, July 3, 2020 at Anna’s Healthcare CBRF.

She was born July 11, 1939 in Laurium, MI, the daughter of Wilfred Raymond Johnson and Lila Agatha (Solmonson) Johnson. Suzanne graduated from Calumet High School in 1957 and went on to study education at Northern Michigan University in Marquette.

She taught various classes in middle school in Green Bay, WI until moving back to Calumet in 1977. Suzanne relocated to Door county in the mid 1980’s, to be closer to family. She was a member of Bay View Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay and donated time, reading to Dorchester Nursing Home residents. Suzanne returned to Laurium and remained active. She led a bible study group at church and founded a book lending program between the local library and hospital. When her health prevented her from living on her own, Suzanne returned to Sturgeon Bay, residing at Williamstown Bay Apartments, making good friends with other residents.

Her final years were spent at Anna’s Healthcare.

Suzanne enjoyed knitting and needlework and also liked gardening. She loved listening to Elvis Presley and Glen Campbell music.
