Susan Olive Selin

BESSEMER, Mich. - Susan Olive "Sue" Selin, 74, of Bessemer, died peacefully at her home, surrounded by her loving family, on Saturday, Aug. 28, 2021.

Sue was born July 21, 1947, in Ironwood, daughter of the late Lloyd and Helvi (Nummi) Erickson. She attended and graduated from the J.E. Murphy High School in 1965, growing up in Gile, Wisconsin.

Sue was formerly employed at Simpson Electric and retired in 2010 from Grand View Hospital in Ironwood where she worked as a CNA, ward clerk and lastly in the food service department. She cherished the friendships she had with her former co-workers, especially Darlene, Sandy and Louise, and her special friend, Jan.

Sue was a die-hard Minnesota Vikings fan and adored Elvis Presley. She loved to bake for her family (the best were her peanut butter and her chocolate chip cookies), enjoyed playing in area dart ball leagues, doing fill-in puzzles and reading. In her younger days, she enjoyed riding her motorcycle "trike." Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the loves of her life. She never missed an event her grandchildren took part in, especially sports, and she was always there when they needed her, no matter the reason.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by two grandsons at birth, twins, Samuel and Benjamin Zacharkiw; an infant sister, June Marie; her sister and brother-in-law, Carol and John Nyman; and her brother, Milton.

Survivors include her two daughters, Tammy Selin, Ironwood, and Lori (Bill) Pedrin, Green Bay, Wisconsin; a son, Mark (Lisa), Bessemer; five grandsons, Steven (Jennifer) Selin, Bessemer, Aaron and Thomas Zacharkiw, both of Ironwood, and Scott Selin (Mya Holm) and Austin Hamm (Jamie Multhauf), both of Green Bay; three granddaughters, Heather Selin (Lee Kostopolus), Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Anna Zacharkiw, Ironwood, and Abigail Newman (Dillon Beschta), Appleton, Wisconsin; three great-granddaughters, Aubrie, Olivia and Hayden; and a great-grandson, Ayden.

Per Sue's wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be no services.

The family wishes to thank Regional Hospice Services and Jerald Rocco of Lakeside Memorial Chapel Inc., in Wakefield, for his care and compassion.
