Susanne L. Towne, age 67, of Eagle River, died on Nov. 28, 2021, at the Aspirus Rhinelander Hospital, in Rhinelander. She was born on Nov. 19, 1954 in Merrill, the daughter of Lloyd and Dorothy (Wilkinson) Dobbe.

Susanne's family moved to Eagle River when she was a child and she then attended schools there. She graduated from the Eagle River High School in 1972. On April 24, 1974 she married Mikel Towne in Rhinelander and they were blessed with nearly 48 years of marriage. They lived in Starks, then Eagle River, Star Lake and then back to Eagle River.

The most important thing in Susanne's life were her family, especially her grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She enjoyed baking, gardening, smoking meat, fishing and taking rides to see the fall colors. Earlier in life she enjoyed deer hunting and would butcher her own deer to "make sure it was done correctly". She was a member of the Congregational church in Eagle River.
