Obituary

Sue Aldrich, 61 of Elk River, formerly of Cambridge, was on her way to Hawaii when God took her home to his eternal paradise on Sunday, February 21, 2021.

            Sue was born on January 7, 1960 in Minneapolis, MN, where she grew up with her parents and siblings. In 1977, she met her future husband, Rick Aldrich, they married on August 25, 1978. She dedicated her life to serving others; be it in a kitchen or raising her family.  Her biggest passion in life was making sure that everyone’s day was a little brighter.

            In 2012, Sue retired from catering with her mother. After retirement, she became a full-time grandma, which she very much loved and enjoyed. She felt her greatest accomplishment in life was being a wife, mother, and grandma.

            Besides spending time with family and friends, Sue loved to find a good bargain, go out to eat, drink Pepsi, wear sandals, play bingo, and go on family vacations. Her favorite place to vacation was Disney World to see her favorite rodent, Mickey Mouse.

            Mom was one of the strongest souls and fought till the very end to overcome all life’s troubles that faced her till God called her home to be with our dad.

            She was preceded in death by her loving husband Rick Aldrich of 41 years, father William Schuman, in-laws Connie & Orris Aldrich, brother John Schuman, brothers-in-laws Carmen Frarck and Curt Carlson, sister-in-law Darlene Schuman, nephew Zach Schuman, close family friend Lynn Norris. 

            Sue is survived by her son Lee (Inna) Aldrich, daughter Laura (Jason) Anthony, beloved grandchildren Danik, Victor and Mark Aldrich, mother Sheila Schuman, siblings Sheryl Carlson, Wayne (Sue) Schuman, David Schuman, Ronald (Kathy) Schuman, Kathy Schuman, Kurt (Jeanne) Schuman, and Leigh-Anne (David) Lighthall, best friend/soul sister Deb Norris-Wise, faithful companion Lucky, many of her children’s friends that called her mom, and other family and friends.
