Sue Carol Mertig passed away at her home on Sept. 13, 2019. She was born on March 31, 1938 to Phyllis and Harold Kyler in Mosinee.
On March 21, 1959, Sue married Donald Mertig Sr. They were married 60 years and have four children.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents; brothers: Don and Howard, and sister Nancy.
In addition to raising her children and working on the family dairy, Sue invested time in the Glidden community. She invested time in the Glidden School Board, was involved in the Glidden Community Fair and taught religion classes. She enjoyed gardening in her own personal park, watching Jeopardy because she was wicked smart and doing crossword puzzles in pen. Sue was a life-long reader, a passion Don and Sue shared later in life.
Sue was and is deeply tied to her family, friends and faith. The close relationships Sue had with her husband and children will be held forever in their hearts.
A memorial service will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. Visitation will be one hour prior at the Assembly of God Church in Glidden.
