Virginia Suszek

November 19, 1943 — December 19, 2021

Virginia Suszek, age 78, of Posen, Michigan passed away peacefully surrounded by family on December 19, 2021 at MyMichigan Medical Center in Midland, Michigan. In her truest nature she was brave, strong, sweet, and kind until the end. Virginia was born on November 19, 1943 to August and Julia (Skowron) Kapala on her family’s farm in Maple Ridge Twp. She married her childhood sweetheart Walter Suszek Jr. in 1962 at a private ceremony in California. They went on to raise their two children, Gary and Lisa.

Virginia was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who devoted her time to caring for her family and family farm. She was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church. She worked her whole life in agriculture and for many years as a dedicated CENA at Tendercare of Alpena. She loved spending her summers at Long Lake with friends and family. She gifted us with her humor, levelness, support, and great strength. She was quiet and the best listener. She loved her pets and listening to music; often singing along when she thought no one was listening. Virginia blessed her friends and family with the love and grace she gave so freely.

Virginia’s friends and family will deeply miss and forever love her. She is survived by her children Gary Suszek (Chrissy Smolinski), and Lisa (Mrs. Michael) Quinn and five grandchildren Dominik Suszek, Julia Quinn, Caitlin Quinn, Erin Quinn, and Michaela Quinn. She was preceded in death by her husband Walter on May 21, 1991, her parents, one brother Harry Kapala and Parent in-laws Walter and Lillian (Kasubowski) Suszek Sr., Brother in-law Martin Suszek, Sister in-laws Doris Misiak, and Margaret Greengtski and Gary’s late companion Peggy Kuchnicki-Dziuba

Per Virginia’s wishes, a private memorial service for her children and grandchildren was held on December 26th at Karpus-Hunter Funeral Home, officiated by Reverend Father Tyler Bischoff of All Saints Parish.  A “celebration of life gathering" will be scheduled for a later date.
