Obituary

Our prayers were answered as the angels came early in the morning on July 8, 2020, and gently took our dear mom, daughter and sister to heaven. During these past few years, as Sue’s health became more fragile, it was her continued faith and trust in God that sustained her, and all of us. Her faith and devotion to the Almighty Lord will be her legacy and the greatest lesson she shared with her family. We now have another angel in Heaven watching over us!

Sue was born to Raymond and Shirley (Robinson) Froehlich on July 28, 1953, in Missoula, Montana. She joined her big brother, Mike, and soon became the loving and caring big sister of Laurie, Leslie, Becky and Tracy. Sue grew up loving special family time, especially at Grandma’s cabin at Flathead Lake and camping at Rock Creek. She was crowned homecoming queen her senior year at Sacred Heart Academy. After graduation in 1971, Sue completed the legal secretary course at Missoula Vo-Tech which propelled her to many different positions in state government, including office manager and time chief at State Division of Forestry in Missoula, office manager at Water Rights Bureau in Helena, and eventually to the position of office manager at the Attorney General’s Office for Marc Racicot. Sue was an organizer and got things done! Her favorite memory was when she was time chief on big fires at the State Division of Forestry and wore her hardhat! She also got to ride in the helicopters to survey the fires, which she loved.

While Sue was working for the State Division of Forestry, she met Steve Huntington. They were married on March 21, 1981. Sue and Steve were blessed with two children, Jim and Mark. Sue and Steve later divorced but remained close.

Sue was an amazingly caring person who always saw the good in people. No one remained a stranger in Sue’s life as they quickly became a friend and she was willing to help them out in any way she could. When Sue was a housekeeper at St. James Hospital in Butte, she made it a point to stop and visit with every patient as she cleaned their rooms. She brightened their days and their lives as she brought them comfort and peace. Her smile would brighten up a room! Sue always held a special place in all of her aunts’ and uncles’ hearts.

Sue was very devoted to The Blessed Mother and had an incredible love for Our Lady of the Rockies, always making sure she had a perfect view of Our Lady from her window wherever she lived.

Sue was preceded in death by her father Raymond Froehlich and her former husband, Steve. She is survived by her two sons, Jim (Charlie Jo) and Mark (Arika), grandchildren Peyton, Karter, George and Oliver, mother Shirley Froehlich, brother and sister-in-law Mike and Janice Froehlich, sisters and brothers-in-law Laurie and Kris Wade, Leslie and Ed Wetherbee, Becky and Dirk Cloninger, and Tracy and Dale Thompson, and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Sue’s family would like to express their heartfelt thanks for the loving care she received from the amazing caregivers at Beehive Homes of Missoula, Hospice of Missoula and St. Patrick Hospital.

A vigil service will be held Wednesday, July 15th, at 7:00 pm at St. Francis Xavier Church, 420 W. Pine Street in Missoula. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, July 16th, at 10:30 am at St. Francis Xavier Church. A private interment will follow at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please have a mass said for Sue or make a donation in Sue’s name to St. Ann’s Church, 2100 Farragut Avenue, Butte, MT 59701.

I will always have special memories of Sue. I was fortunate enough to share a short time as roommates working together in California. We took several rode trips to the coast while there. When we came back to Montana our work took us to explore different paths but we remained friends. She was one of my special bridesmaids at our wedding. I regret we lost contact and closeness over the years. She was always a positive and beautiful person. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her surviving family.

Thank you Marilyn! I know those were special times for Sue and she always treasured your friendship. I remember when she came home at Christmas that year and had the coolest coat I had ever seen! That was a special time in her life and we talked about it in the last couple weeks of her life. It was one of her favorite memories! Leslie

Susie and I had so much fun together. We sang duets in state competition and always got a superior. The picture of her holding the boys as babies is at my parents home. I recognized it by the "Last Supper" on the wall. In high school she often stayed at my house in the summer when my parents were at the lake and I stayed home for my summer job. We lost touch a few years ago but she will always have a special place in my heart. Condolences to all her family. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I worked with Sue at the State Division of Forestry where we became great friends. One of my favorite memories is a road trip vacation we took to Seattle and Northern California. We visited the Redwood Forest, a winery, San Francisco and took a ferry ride across the San Francisco Bay. We had so much fun together and although our lives went in different directions and I have not seen her for many years I will always consider her one of my best friends and favorite people. Thank you Sue for being part of my life, I was blessed to know you.
