Susan C. Muenchow, age 59, of Horicon, died unexpectedly from complications of undiagnosed brain cancer on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at UW Hospital in Madison.
The former Susan Caro Geddes was born on March 25, 1954 in Waukesha, Wisconsin to James S. and Donna M. (Manicke) Geddes. On June 8, 1974 she was united in marriage with her high school sweetheart, Dan Muenchow, at St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Horicon.
