Susan Marian Miller Poosch, 80, of Chesterfield MI passed away on January 20, 2024 with her family by her side.
Susan born on March 11, 1943 in Detroit, MI to her parents William and Gertrude Miller whom passed away when she was at a very young age. She was then raised by Otto and Margaret Boekle of Grosse Pointe MI as well as extended family and older brothers and sisters; the late William Miller (Mary Etta), Joan (Tom) Hyland , Barbara (Charles) Hansen and Robert Miller. Susan is survived by her younger, sister Joyce (Noel) Smith and sister-in-law, Sharon Poosch.

Susan attended Ferris State University as well as a small college in Missouri. She loved life and sharing good times with her family and friends every chance she could. In her earlier years, her family lived in Harrison Twp. among treasured neighbors whom became lifelong friends. She introduced her children to boating with Donald and also to her own passion of horses. They lived in Algonac, MI on a horse farm where she taught her children the value of hard work, resilience, independence and accomplishment all the while having fun. As a mother and grandmother, it was so important to her to provide unconditional love and support to her children and grandchildren. Susan was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. In her later years, she battled significant health issues and tapped into her strength, independence and resilience to be able to extend her time with her family to which they will forever be grateful for. She brought so much joy and love into this world and she will be greatly missed.
