Susan was born April 29, 1960 in Blue Earth, the daughter of Tom and Mimi (Murphy) Carr. She grew up on a farm in Pilot Grove Township. Susan was a member of the original class at the Faribault County Day Activity Center in Blue Earth. She was also one of the first students with special needs to attend Blue Earth Public Schools.
Susan was then employed at MRCI in Fairmont for 35 years. Susan retired in 2018 and currently attended St. Luke’s Adult Day Program.
Susan had many interests. She enjoyed bowling, puzzles, walking, pictures, cats, dogs, and diet coke. People that knew her well knew that purple was always her favorite color. Susan loved to listen to the radio and was KBEW’s biggest fan. Her favorite song was “Let There Be Peace on Earth”. Mass at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church was very important to her. Susan was easy to love and will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends.
Susan’s family would like to thank Elm Homes for the tremendous care given to Susan while she lived in their care.
