Susan was born Oct. 13, 1960, daughter of Milo and Mary (Whitehead) Timmerman. She graduated from West Delaware High School in 1979 and later attended Hamilton Business College.

Susan was united in marriage to Steven Wulfekuhle, Sr., Sept. 15, 1979, at Saint Mary Catholic Church in Manchester. Born to this union were four sons: Steven Jr, Scott, David and Kevin. She worked several roles in her career, primarily focused as an Administrative Assistant. Most recently she was employed at Animal Health International in Manchester.

Susan will be remembered for always supporting those in need. She enjoyed making salsa for everyone with the produce from her garden, spending time outdoors, relaxing by the firepit, crocheting, playing cards, raising her chickens, all things colored pink and purple, a bowl of ice cream before bed and the movie, The Wizard of Oz. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandsons.

Susan is survived by her husband; her sons, Steven Jr. (Brooke), David (Alecia) and Kevin (Sherry); her grandsons Joseph and Kaleb; her mother-in-law, Helen Wulfekuhle; her siblings, Kathleen Timmerman (Rick Thomas), John (Becky) Timmerman, Wayne (Cathy) Timmerman, Lori (Bob) Madrick, Janeen (Delbert) Hettinger, James (Leticia) Timmerman and Amy (Jake) Reeves; in-laws, Ed (Marla) Wulfekuhle and Cheryl (Tom) Recker; many nieces and nephews; and her beloved dog, Beau.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Milo and Mary; her father-in-law, Floyd Wulfekuhle; her son, Scott (in infancy); her sister, Jean (Jeannie) Timmerman; her brother-in-law, Terrence Wulfekuhle (in infancy); a nephew, Mark Hettinger; and a niece, Jenna Reeves.
