Susanna M. Flanagan, 61, of Wyocena, passed away peacefully to the other side Friday. August 21, 2020 at her home at the Columbia Healthcare Center. She was born August 20, 1959 to Urban “Tiny” and Margaret Renz in Chicago. IL.
She joined the family as the baby and often got away with more than her siblings, but to hear her tell it she was an angel. Susie attended school in Chicago. She spent her life loving and serving others, waitressing, being a CNA, babysitting, being a foster mom, and homemaker. To know Susie was to love her. Her sense of humor, strength and love will far surpass her years on earth. She loved funny banter, her own opinion and being her unapologetically self. She loved her boys, family, friends, and adored her grandbabies.
Survivors include her two sons Nick (CalleyMae) Flanagan and Jon (Heidi) Flanagan; beloved grandchildren Mikey, Hannah, Hunter, A.J., Ashlynn, Jaedyn, Elise, Gwyneth, and Myles; siblings Ron Clark, Kay Wisecup, Al (Laima) Renz, Patricia Keepes; sister-in-law Helena (Larry) Huddleston, and many nieces, nephews, their children, friends, neighbors, in-laws, and her family at the Healthcare Center. Susie joins her family in heaven, her true love and husband Mike Flanagan, her parents; brothers Leland and Gerald Renz; sister and brother-in-law Darlene and Truman Fahrenholz; sister-in-law Birtha Clark; brother-in-law Tony Keepes; nephew Jerome Renz, and family and friends too numerous to count. If it is possible to raise a little hell in heaven, these guys will get it done.
A memorial visitation with social distancing and mask mandate will be held Thursday, August 27 from 9 to 11 AM at Grasse Funeral Home, 119 Industrial Drive, Pardeeville. Interment will follow at Pardeeville Cemetery. The family would like to thank Rachel Booth for expert care. Also everyone at the Columbia Healthcare Center.

There is a hole in our hearts and Susie please know we love you more.
