Susan Renee Whitcomb was born on November 9, 1965 in Hutchinson, Minnesota, the daughter of Donavon and Esther M. (Wiehr) Bluhm. She grew up and received her education in Cosmos, graduating from Cosmos High School in 1984. She was baptized, confirmed and married at Peace Lutheran Church in Cosmos. On August 31, 1985, she was married to Steven Allen Whitcomb and they made their home in the Lake Lillian area. She worked for a short time making quilts in Litchfield and with Green Giant, but worked mostly with Steven, raising their children and working in the family business. Sue enjoyed helping in her community and helped with the fundraiser for playground equipment at the Cosmos School and for the past 15 years has been active with the community theater in Cosmos. She worked as a stage hand and had also been an assistant director. She loved being with her family, attending the children's school activities and just being involved in their lives. She even home schooled the oldest three children for their first years. Sue enjoyed gardening, she sold produce at the public markets in the area for a few years, canning, cooking and camping. The children said they will miss her smile, her good sense of humor and knowing that she was always there for them.
