Susan Flatter Obituary

Susan K. Flatter, 69, died Thursday, September 28, 2023, at her home.

She was born June 1, 1954, in Tomahawk. A short time after birth she was adopted by Frank and Rose (Fischer) Plano. On June 27, 1981, she married Christopher Flatter at St. Michael Catholic Church, Wausau.

She had an infectious laugh that would light up a room. When she laughed, you couldn’t help but laugh with her.  In addition to being a homemaker, organizer and all-around motivator, Sue was a swimming instructor and coach for many years at the YMCA as well as DC Everest.  She enjoyed watching her daughters at swim meets and freely offered them advice on how to go faster! She loved the Plano family cottage on North Turtle Lake and had many happy memories of time spent there - many of which were in the company of her best friend, since the age of 8, Carol Cumber. Most of all, Sue loved her family deeply. She will be missed so very much!

Survivors include her husband, Chris Flatter; daughters, Sarah (Jason) Lardinois and Amanda (Erik Bendickson) Flatter; mother, Rose Plano; brothers, Franklin (JoAnn) Plano and David (Patricia) Plano; and grandkitties, grandchickens.

Besides her father, she was preceded in death by an infant sister, Sally Plano.

Memorial services will be 3:00 p.m. Saturday, October 7, 2023, at Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Home, 1302 Sixth St., Wausau.  Rev. Joy Nelson-Jeffers will officiate.  Visitation will be Saturday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service all at the Sixth Street funeral home.
