Susan Lorene Krowech was born October 24, 1948, to Robert G. and Elsie (Larson) Krowech of Salol, Minnesota. Sue grew up on the family farm in Salol. She attended the Salol School, Roseau High School, and then Bemidji State University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Speech and German. At Bemidji, she also met the love of her life, Steve Woller. They were married on December 27, 1970. She later earned her Master’s degree in English from Saint Cloud State University. Sue taught English and German for 35 years until she retired in 2005.
Sue and Steve moved to Upsala, Minnesota in 1972. They raised their sons, Jay and Scott, on the farm. Sue was a member of the Community Covenant Church.
Sue devoted countless hours to volunteering with the food shelf, teaching English to Somali students, and serving in her local church. She had a love of antiques, garage sales, and great deals, which led to selling treasures at Dust and Rust in Upsala. She enjoyed travel, playing games, and reading, but her greatest passion was her family.
