Susan Heide, 53, of McHenry, passed away peacefully at her home on April 11, 2020.
Susan was born on February 4, 1967 in Woodstock to Ernest and Lucia (Arnold) Heide.
She grew up in Johnsburg and played softball while she was a student at Johnsburg High School.
Over the years, she developed a love for cooking, playing bingo at the McHenry VFW (post 4600), yearly camping trips to the Baraboo Hills camping ground in Wisconsin, and she liked to keep up on politics, following President Trump and tuning in to the Fox news podcast.
Susan was also a very caring woman, doting on her Great-niece Angelina as well as her dog, Biggie. Susan took an enormous amount of pride, love, and joy caring for Angelina.
She is survived by her two sons, Michael and Zachary Heide, sisters Dorothy and Laura Heide, her nephew, Tim Heide Valdez, her great niece Angelina Heide, Ryan, Justin, Koda, Honor Goodbear, and many other nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Susan was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Steve and Scott, and her nieces Sara and Alex.
Susan’s family kindly requests any donations be made to a crowdfunding campaign that will be established in her honor in lieu of flowers. Proceeds will be distributed to charities to be determined at a later date.
Arrangements were entrusted to Justen Funeral Home & Crematory in McHenry. For information, please call the funeral home at 815-385-2400 or visit www.justenfh.com, where friends and love ones may share memories of Susan on her tribute wall.
