Susan Ellen Carpenter was the 5th Child of 7 born in January 2nd, 1962 to Joe & Alberta Carpenter in Waukegan, Illinois.  Susan passed away Monday, January 17th, 2022.

Susan was a loving and devoted sister to Richard Winkler (Colette), Linda Prusinski (Jim), Nancy Mundschenk, Mark Carpenter, Patrick Carpenter (Linda), and Pamela Simonetti (Dan).  She was an adoring aunt to her 3 nieces and 14 nephews and was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Richard.

Susan’s love and devotion to dogs led to her involvement with The Great Pyrenees Rescue Mission and she leaves behind her two cherished furry babies Rocco and LaKota.  After a long day her favorite pastime was sitting under the tree with her dogs and a hot cup of tea.

She was very passionate and creative in her life’s work as a Master Gardener, Chef and Caregiver for the elderly.  Our sister promoted organic eating with a Farm to Table program and served in numerous soup kitchens.  Susan also enjoyed horseback riding, walking her dogs, cooking for others and being outdoors.

Susan’s faithfulness to her friends and family was outshined only by her generosity and hospitality to everyone.  Words cannot express our family’s deep sense of loss and sorrow with her passing.
