Susie was born on October 19, 1932 in the Town of Hebron to Walter and Laura (Donnelly) Zimmerman. She graduated from Whitewater City High School in 1950. Susie married Raymond M. Welter on January 16, 1954. He preceded her in death on April 5, 2016. She worked at the American Legion in Whitewater as she coordinated the best Friday night fish fry! She supervised staff that were family or became family figuratively and literally. She later worked at Wal-Mart in retail and fabric. Susie shared her expertise and kindness with the Whitewater community. Susie enjoyed gardening, flowers, collecting owls, and salt and pepper shakers. She made each person comfortable at her table with dishes and desserts too many to count. She would say “What can I get you more of?” She sent cards regularly to her family. Susie added her ‘Grandma Welter love’ to each child that they will truly pass on to generations to come.
