Obituary for Suzette Margaret Sproehlich (Whitler)

Suzette Margaret Sproehlich (nee Whitler), age 78, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 23, 2022 at the Froedtert of West Bend. She was born on June 9, 1944 in Milwaukee, WI to Everett and Marion (nee DeGray) Whitler. Suzette married her husband Francis Carl Sproehlich in December of 1963 and together they had 13 children. She was the mom that all the other neighborhood moms would go to for advice before taking their own to the Dr! She very much-loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She was defined by one thing in particular, unconditional love. She was kind, a great listener and very easy going but above all she always made you feel loved and you knew without a doubt that her love was unconditional.

Suzette loved animals and nature, the Packers, crocheting, reading, the casino-particularly flying to Vegas with her husband and friends. Her laughter and smile will forever be missed along with her positive outlook on life and her kind heart for all others.

Suzette is survived her husband of 58 years, Francis; 12 children, Lori (Gary) Rosenthal, Julie (Russell) Blish, Tony (Beth), Shelly Young, Frank (Tiffany), Jenny (Brad) Rosenbaum, Maggie (Adam) Landowski, Jacob (Desiree), Cindy (Kevin) Konitzer, Matthew (Ayla), Joel and Gerald; her true joy was her grandchildren, Amanda Noll, Stella and Avi Mayerhoff, Andrew Blish, Ryan and Thomas Sproehlich, Alexandria and Mackenzie Young, Jasmine Sproehlich, Ellison Rosenbaum, Bre and Wes Landowski, Anna, Madalyn, Regan, Payton, Brinlee, Jacob Jr. and Nehemiah Sproehlich, Devin and Riley Konitzer, Jadzia Sproehlich; 2 sisters Virginia Smerlinski and Margaret (Jacqueline) Smerlinski. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.
