Susan J. (Daher) Petersen

Susan Joy Petersen, age 42, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 9, 2012, at her residence. She was born in Racine, January 23, 1970, daughter of Herbert and MaryAnn (Nee: Koss) Daher.

Susan graduated from Washington Park High School “Class of 1988.”  In 1995 she was united in marriage to Jon L. Petersen, who passed away this past June 23rd.  Susan’s love for children inspired her to open up Rainbow Corner Day Care, which she ran the past 10 years.  She also had a great love for her cats, but it was the time spent with her grandchildren that she treasured most.  She will be dearly missed.

Surviving are her daughter and son-in-law, Charlotte and Charlie Fernandez;  grandchildren, Savannah and Liam;  her mother, MaryAnn (Richard) Jacoby;  sister, Dawn (Steve) Vlach; brother, Troy (Mary) Halversen;  sister-in-law, Robin Petersen; aunt, Kathy (Don Riegleman) Rouse; nieces and nephews, Amber, Gina and Dan Vlach, Brandon Johnson;   other relatives and friends.  In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Dale Daher; and her father, Herbert Daher.

Funeral services will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, August 16, 2012, at 11 a.m. Interment will follow at Graceland Cemetery.  Relatives and friends may meet with the family Thursday at the funeral home from 9:30 a.m. until time of service.  In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family to be used for the grandchildren’s education have been suggested.
