Obituary for Jessie Alice Susemichel

Jessie Alice Susemichel, 100, of Indianapolis, passed away peacefully in her home on November 3, 2018, surrounded by her family. She was born on November 24, 1918 in Indianapolis to the late John and Elizabeth Bisselberg.

She was a long-time member of Tapestry Church, formerly Southport Christian Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Robert M. Susemichel; sister, Dorothy Dorsett and brother, Carl Bisselberg.

Survivors include her sons, Robert C. (Toni) and Ronald J. (Nancy) Susemichel; grandchildren, Bob (Alice) Susemichel, Paul (Lisa) Susemichel, Mark (Raechelle) Susemichel, Peggy (Eric) Martin, Brian (Bridget) Susemichel, and Greg (Shaylee) Susemichel; great grandchildren Ben, Matt, Alexa, Roth, Nick, Avery, Leo, AJ, Hollyn, Claire, Lilah.

She was a lifelong member of Pi Omicron National Sorority Sigma Beta Chapter and a board member for the Indianapolis Women’s Bowling Association.

She would tell you her occupation in life was Wife, Mother, and Grandmother. Her family was her priority, and she was most happy surrounded by those she loved.

Hobbies included bowling, cooking for family and friends, travel, playing bridge, crossword puzzles, and watching the Game Show Network. The hobby she is probably most known for is crafts. While through the years there have been many different endeavors, such as pin cushions, knitted and crocheted washcloths and towels, she is commonly referred to as “the scrubbie lady”. All of the money raised by the craft items she created and sold went to charitable organizations, and in the last 4 years alone she donated $9,000 to Hunger, Inc. from the fruits of her labor – a labor of love.

All whom she came in contact with fell in love with her, and all were amazed by mind and spirit until the end. Her heart was tired from all the love she gave to others.

Grandma and Grandpa Susemichel as they were known by many, enjoyed entertaining at their house, and had an open door for friends of their children and grandchildren. As condolences begin to arrive following the news of her passing, the following comment sums up what she meant to so many: “I remember all of the time we spent with her, playing cards with her in the basement, talking about life, and just enjoying the safe and friendly space she always gave to us. She wasn’t officially my Grandma, but she sure made me feel loved like I was one of her own. She was one in a million, the likes of which don’t come along more than once in a lifetime. I’m just glad I was there for even just a small part of her life to benefit, grow and learn from one of the best.”

Visitation will be from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at G.H. Herrmann Madison Avenue Funeral Home, 5141 Madison Avenue. Funeral services will be conducted at 10:00 am on Wednesday, November 7 at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 445 E. Stop 11 Road, Indianapolis, with visitation from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service. She will be laid to rest at Greenwood Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Tapestry Church (formerly Southport Christian Church) 2801 Fairview Place, Suite M, Greenwood, Indiana 46142, or to the donor’s favorite charity.
