Susan Margaret Silbernagel (Wise) was born December 19, 1954 to Willys and Beverly Wise of Irricana, Alberta and passed away November 30, 2020.
Sue attended school at Irricana, Kathyrn and Beiseker, then night classes at the U of C and S.A.I.T while working for Alberta Social Services. In June 1977 she married Ray and moved to the farm north west of Beiseker and soon after went to work as Municipal Administrator for the Village of Irricana. In 1983 she started her home business, Sue Books, including tax preparation and bookkeeping for local businesses. Sue volunteered to do annual audits for several Community Service Clubs in the area.
Sue loved to travel, going on cruises, nights by the campfire, dressing up with friends for Halloween, Grey Cup parties, supporting the Calgary Stampeders, annual trips with the girls to Vegas, time in Radium and always up for a visit with friends, where you could be guaranteed laughs, food, and a card game.
