Susie Marie Lind

April 17th, 1923 – March 16th, 2023

Susie Marie Lind, 99, peacefully passed away while watching the sunrise on Thursday, March 16, 2023. She was the third surviving child born to William and Mary Miller in Bader, IL on April 17, 1923. She married the nicest boy in Astoria, Donald ‘Don’ Lind on April 9, 1950 and, together, they raised three children in their home outside of Tremont.

Her brothers, David and Andrew Miller, both preceded her in death, as did her husband Don.

She is survived by her children: Nancy (and Jack) Beyer of Midland, MI, Ed (and Carol) Lind of Normal, IL, and John (and Kathy) Lind of Elgin, IL; five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

Susie was known for her baking: Thanksgiving pies, Christmas cookies and Don’s favorite, her outstanding strawberry shortcake. She was kind, volunteering with the Tremont Women’s Club to roll bandages for a Louisiana leper colony. She was also fearless, attempting a first unicycle ride while in her fifties; but more than anything, she was a loving, wise, thoughtful woman who will be sorely missed. Ninety-nine years may seem like a long time, but for those who loved her, it was not nearly long enough.

A graveside memorial will be held at 11 am on Friday, March 24, 2023 in the Astoria Cemetery in Astoria, IL, where Susie will be laid to rest next to her beloved Don. Shawgo Memorial Home is handling the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Fulton County 4-H.

We're all very sorry for your loss, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I enjoyed meeting Grandma Lind on the cruise to Alaska as well as the rest of the family. She sure sounded like an incredible lady, a unicycle at 50, amazing.
Love and hugs
