Susan Pfleeger ’64 Bolks

Susan Eileen (Pfleeger) Bolks, age 79, of Minocqua, Wisconsin died peacefully with family by her side and entered into the arms of her Abba Father on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 2:55 am. Susan was born in Geneva, Illinois on November 28, 1942 to George and Margaret (Andersen) Pfleeger. She grew up in Batavia, Illinois, with her parents and beloved brother Jim, spending summer days at the family cottage and waterskiing on Lake Geneva. School days found her playing clarinet in the marching band for Batavia High, volunteering at the local hospital and making lifelong friends. Upon graduation, she attended Hope College and graduated with a BS in Nursing from Swedish Covenant Hospital, Chicago, IL in 1965. While at Hope, Susan met her future husband, Ervin Bolks. They married in September 1965, raised two daughters in Tarzana, California and were blessed with 56 years together. Sue loved to laugh, spend time in Bible reading and prayer, take care of her family, play tennis, knit, nurture treasured friendships, disciple women, and create beautiful quilts, many as special gifts for others. Her enormous caring heart, genuine interest in the lives of friends, family, beloved grandchildren, and strangers along her path, were examples to emulate. Susan was preceded in death by her parents and husband Erv who passed away November 6th, only weeks before her. She is survived by her brother Jim (Donna) Pfleeger, daughters Heather Bolks ’88 Evenhouse (Charlie) and Cathy Bolks ’92 Muir (Bill ’91) and beloved grandchildren who called her Oma, Zach & Kadee, Connor, Justin, Henry, Abe, Ava, Jim, Rachael and Sara.
