Faith “Sue” Ostrom age 79 passed away on Wednesday March 3, 2021 in West Bend. She was born on December 6, 1941 in Erie, Pennsylvania to Harold and Lucille Dawson. She was raised in North East, Pa and graduated from North East High School Class of 1959. On September 14, 1963 she married James R. Ostrom at The Baptist Church in North East Pa. and they began their family.

Sue loved reading, gardening, and English comedy shows. One of her favorite things to do was to have her grandchildren over, especially the “littles” – Zane and Teddy. She was a wonderful example of God’s love and forgiveness to everyone around her. She valued her family and friends and cared about their relationships with God, above everything else. She was a quiet giver, always offering to lend a hand or to help out financially. She was member of Calvary Church in West Bend and was very involved with the prayer team.

Sue is survived by her daughters Shelley (Anthony) Reading-Brown and Anne (Matthew) Rateau and son Jon; her grandchildren Noah, Allie, Simon, Zane and Teddy, her siblings; Ed Dawson, Sylvia Dawson and Jeff Dawson other relatives and friends.

A Memorial Service for Sue will be held at 1:30pm on Saturday March 13th at Calvary Assembly of God Church (1110 E. Decorah Rd West Bend, WI 53095) with Rev. Gerald J. Michaelson presiding. Visitation will be at the church from 1:00pm until the service.

Shelley, Annie and Jon, so very sorry for your loss. Sue was a wonderful cousin and someone I looked up to as a child, teenager ( when visiting Erie and North East) and adult. Always kind to me and a perfect example of a strong woman. I will miss our chats. She was what I think of as “salt of the earth” along with being a loving and loyal parent and grandparent. You are all so lucky to have had her as a mother and grandmother. God Bless you all. Pennie

I want to pay special tribute to a true friend and sister in Christ. Lifting me up when I was down, supporting me when I needed it and always reminding me that I was special, I belonged and that I was so loved. Sue I can see you and Jon dancing together in heaven, rejoicing your freedom from pain, their being together again, and the beauty of being in Heaven!!! I love you and miss you already! Ann from Florida

Remembering Sue as a woman of faith who loved the Lord, her family and friends. I enjoyed her quick mind, her enthusiasm for life, and her sense of humor. When we were younger, we used to practice for the church song service. Sue and I were not known as singers, but we made up for it with the sheer delight of worshipping the Lord. One day after practicing, Sue was so enthusiastic about our time singing, she blurted out: " Ya know, guys, we should go on the road!" We all laughed, but I still recall the joy in the room that day as friends, united by our love of our Lord and each other. Sue also was a great story teller: one of my sons would follow her around at church gatherings and beg her to tell him "real" stories. You see, Sue would tell him about her childhood and adventures she and her brother had as children. I will miss Sue, but one of the last things I told her was that she was a warrior. As she battled her illness, she never took her eyes off of Jesus. She was an overcomer and more than a conqueror. She ran her race well.
