Susanne M. Mehlisch

God introduced Susanne Marie (Maxfield) Mehlisch to his world on July 20, 1948 and Jesus our Lord and Savior escorted her home to God’s Heavenly house on May 31, 2013. Sue was born in Marshalltown, Iowa and graduated from Marshalltown Senior High in 1966 and Marshalltown Community College in 1969, receiving numerous academic awards.

In 1970, she married Mike Mehlisch and became a military wife residing in Germany 6 years and living in 11 other states before residing in San Antonio Texas area after the military wife tour was over. Along the way she had a son (Sean) and received numerous awards for her implementation of family and soldier support programs in each area her husband was assigned. She is without a doubt the most selfless, caring, and get it done regardless, person I have ever known. She was also an avid activist against animal abuse.

Sue is preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Darlene Maxfield and her son, Sean. She is survived by her husband, Mike Mehlisch, her brother, Pastor David Maxfield, her sister, Sandra Johnson, and several cousins and nieces.
