Obituary for Susan "Suzi" Marie Wurdeman

Susan “Suzi” Marie (Lesch) Wurdeman, age 61, was born on November 25, 1959, in Worthington, MN, the daughter of Loren and Mary Jean (Gehrls) Lesch. She graduated from Heron Lake High School in 1978. Suzi was united in marriage to Billy Wurdeman on August 11, 1979. She recently retired from Worthington ISD 518 Community Education after 27+ years of service and was previously employed at Community First National Bank, currently known as Bank of the West, for 12 years. She was a loving daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. Suzi passed away on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at her home in rural Lakefield, MN, surrounded by her family.
Suzi cherished spending time with family and friends, including Saturday morning coffee visits, evening bonfires, and annual vacations “Up North.” She enjoyed reading, picnics, and long phone conversations. Suzi, along with her husband, Bill, always made time for motorcycle rides and taking the convertible out for ice cream. She loved games and was often the Scrabble champion. Most of all, Suzi adored her grandchildren and always spoiled them with special treats and warm hugs.
Suzi will be greatly missed by her husband, Bill, of rural Lakefield, MN; children, Daniel (Brenda) Wurdeman of Shelby, IA, Megan (Brandon) Quade of Duluth, MN, and Bryan Wurdeman of Lakefield, MN; grandchildren, Laura, Paige, Miles, Ethan, Rory, and Penelope; mother, Jean Lesch of Spirit Lake, IA; siblings, Karen (Joe) VanderLaan of Spirit Lake, IA, Doug (Ann) Lesch of Lakefield, MN, Paula Dorn of Chandler, AZ, and Shelley (Scott) Barber of Worthington, MN; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Loren Lesch; brother, Dick Lesch; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Herb and Mary Ann Wurdeman; and brother-in-laws, Ricky Wurdeman and Eric Dorn.
Visitation will be held on Friday, August 20, 2021, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington, MN, and one hour prior to service at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Service will occur Saturday, August 21, 2021, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, rural Lakefield, MN, at 10:30 am with committal and lunch to follow.
