Susan Grady (Wife of Carl Grady)
Grady, Susan Elizabeth (Motl)
Middleton: Susan Elizabeth (Motl) Grady, age 68, passed away surrounded by her loving husband Carl and cherished sons, Ryan and Casey on Thursday, December 17, 2015 at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg. Susan is also survived by sister and brothers-in-law; Sue E. (Bill) Fullmore, Richard M. Grady, and Timothy J. (Mary) Grady. She was preceded in death by her parents, James V. and Elizabeth "Betty" Jane Motl, and her brother Gregory (Rosanne) Motl.
Since I wrote my mother's, my father's, and my brother's obituaries, I felt it only fitting to write my own. I left this world on Thursday, December 17, 2015; but I will always be with my family and friends. I was preceded in death by my mother, my father, and brother, who passed away all too soon as have I.
I was born on November 25, 1947, raised in Madison and after college receiving a BA in English Education at St. Theresa's in Minnesota, returned to start my career. I taught 4 years in Marshall, and 41 years at Blessed Sacrament.
As of June 2015, I began my retirement, but soon became aware that I had cancer. This was not what I visualized as my retirement. But I guess God had plans for me. I know I will love seeing my family in heaven, but I will miss seeing my sons grow, and enjoying time with Carl. I leave behind my husband of 35 years, Carl, my sons Ryan (31), and Casey (29), as well as friends and relatives who have been with me over the years. My mantra for retirement was "It's Time," and the same applies to my death.
