Sue Ann Bucholz-Rice nee Fitzpatrick, age 77, of Huntley, IL, died on November 30, 2021, after a courageous battle with Dementia.
Sue was the beloved mother to Emily (Bill Lutz) and Sarah (Keith) Kazluski, dear grandmother to Billy and Allie Lutz, and Bella and Trina Kazluski. She is also survived by her much beloved dog, Fiona.
Sue was preceded in death by her parents William and Sarah Fitzpatrick, sisters Joan and Noel, son Eric Bucholz, and husbands Mark Jay Bucholz and Owen Rice.
Sue was born and raised in Elmhurst, IL. She was a legal secretary and went on to become a legislative aide to two state representatives. She served on school board of District 89 and was also the president for many years. She also ran a grief and loss group to help parents who lost children.
Sue was incredibly proud of her Irish heritage, enjoyed traveling to Ireland, and always took St. Patrick’s Day off to celebrate the holiday. She was a woman who enjoyed singing and dancing to Neil Diamond, loudly and proudly, could be found gardening in her spare time, and was an avid bocci ball enthusiast. For Sue, there was nothing better, though, than spending time surrounded by her family.
A Memorial Mass will be held at Christ the King Catholic Church, 1501 South Main Street, Lombard, on Thursday, December 30th, at 10:30 AM, with Interment to follow at Elm Lawn Cemetery, 401 E. Lake St Elmhurst, IL.
