Susan has served on the Board for the last 2 ½ years. She was raised in De Pere with 11 siblings, so you may not know her, however you may know one of her sisters or brothers. Both of her parents Dr. GB and Francis C. Merline are buried at De Pere Greenwood Cemetery, and have an extra plot for a family member. Her career for the past 18 years has been in Broadcast TV as a sales executive developing sales and marketing strategies for her clients. She also wears many other hats. She is a mother to 3 incredible young adults, a grandmother to her grandson Austin and granddaughter Peyton. A hat she wears with extreme pride is that of Commander of the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. She has been in this position for the past 5 years. They help many veterans — young and old —with benefits, transportation, housing, nursing home/hospital visits, fundraising, funerals, etc.
After hearing about the issues and needs at hand in the De Pere Greenwood Cemetery, she has been an asset to the cemetery association board in persevering the dignity and legacy of our loved ones. Her help in the creating awareness of the Cemetery and its historical importance to the community is greatly appreciated.
