Susan was born on July 20, 1954, in Sioux City, to Arnold Norman and Jeanne Delores (Cronan) Frerichs. She attended Sioux City schools. She was a chef for numerous restaurants around Sioux City.

Susan enjoyed spending time at home with her soul mate, Larry, watching Law and Order and Special Victims Unit (The T.V. channel hasn’t been changed for five years). Susan was diehard Elvis Presley fan. She also enjoyed spending time with her close friends, Rhonda Spencer, Rhonda Bahr, Judy Roback, and Jeannine Corey, among many other friends. She also enjoyed playing cards, especially 31 and video poker games. She will be sorely missed by all whose lives she touched. Susan never knew a stranger, and everyone knew that her door was always open to whomever needed it.

Susan is survived by soul mate of 15 years, Larry Nicolls of Sioux City; special son, Christian Dean Bowder of Sioux City; brothers, Timothy (Janie) Frerichs of El Paso, Texas, and Richard A. (Terri) Frerichs of Augusta, Ga.; and one granddaughter, Chloe Brinkerhoff of Texas.

She was preceded by her parents; and a son, Daniel Joseph Frerichs-Brinkerhoff.
