Susan M. Coates, 60, of Rhinelander passed away on Thursday morning, Dec. 9, 2021 at her home with her husband, Troy, at her side and under the care of Compassus Northern Hospice.

Susan was born in Milwaukee on May 23, 1961 to Louis and Joanne (Gronik) Urette. She was raised in Bayside and was a 1979 graduate of Nicolet High School in Glendale. Susan moved to the Northwoods in the early '90s, living in Lake Tomahawk. She later attended Nicolet Technical College earning a degree as a Certified Medical Assistant. Upon graduating, she was employed at Marshfield Clinic in Minocqua. After relocating to Rhinelander, she started working for Allied 100 in Arbor Vitae as senior account manager/supervisor.
