Susan (Sue) V. Mikulsky died December 21, 2020. Sue’s favorite time of the year was Christmas, surrounded by the friends and family she so dearly loved. It only seems fitting that she passed away the day the Bethlehem Star shined brightest. Sue is now celebrating Christmas (her Super Bowl) in Heaven with her Lord and Savior. She is at peace after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. We know she is watching over us, and we know she is cheering all of us on.
Sue lived her entire life in Green Bay and was a proud 1966 graduate of Green Bay West High School. Sue married Phillip Mikulsky on August 30, 1969 (over 51 years together). She died with her husband and two sons by her side. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She adored her two sons, Aaron and Jonathan, and her three grandchildren. Sue had a kind, warm soul and loved nothing more than spending time with family, especially during holidays, birthdays - or any occasion. Her favorite place was her cottage – playing cards overlooking the lake, telling stories around the campfire, drinking her morning coffee while watching the hummingbirds. Sue loved to decorate and shop, especially for other people. At her favorite stores, she knew many of the employees by name, and they always remembered her. She made friends wherever she went.
She always put others before herself - actively helping those in need. Sue was a strong woman of faith. She was a life-long member of First Presbyterian Church Green Bay serving as a Deacon for decades and in numerous other capacities. Sue loved to volunteer and help organize packing events for Feed My Starving Children. She was the Vice President of the HOPE Matters Foundation and a long-time member of PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization).
Survivors include her husband Phillip; her sons Aaron (Carrie) Mikulsky and Jonathan (Kimberly) Mikulsky; grandchildren Olivia, Ava, and Madelyn; brothers John (Connie) Early, Ross (Lyn) Early, and sister Connie Early; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She is preceeded in death by her parents, Donald and Roberta Early.
Private family services will be held on Tuesday, December 29, 2020. A livestream of her services will be available at 1:45 PM on her tribute page at www.lyndahl.com where expressions of sympathy may also be left for Sue’s family. A larger celebration of Susan’s life will be held at a later date (when we are able) to share wonderful memories together.
