Suzanne Elizabeth (Wilden) Nadeau passed away on Friday, June 4, 2021. Suzanne was born February 26, 1948 in Hastings, NE to Robert F. and Norma M. Wilden.

She graduated from Hastings Senior High in 1966. Later in life she went back and achieved a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and Leadership. She worked a variety of jobs including phlebotomist, lab technician, administration, and as a business owner. She took a lot of pride in her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She had a variety of interests, especially traveling to the ocean, sewing beautiful dresses for brides, bridesmaids, children's dresses, and upholstery work, reading poetry, visiting museums, listening to music and going to concerts. Her choice of music ranged from Blues to Rock and Roll to her grandson's rap. Suzanne participated in the Red Hat Society. She was most passionate about her children and family speaking with them everyday.

Suzanne was the oldest of seven children. She is preceded in death by her parents and is survived by, Robert Wilden (Janelle), Dennis Wilden (Patty), M. Christine Forrester (Alan), Lillian Hollingsed (Dan), Patricia Wilden, Joseph Wilden; three daughters, Angela Brauner (Bruce Cooey), Christine Riffle (Randy Johannsen), Laura Farmer (Ronnie); 11 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren and many other family members.

At 73 years young, she was a feisty lady who lived life on her own terms. Beautiful inside and out, she had a tender heart for her loved ones, was an exceptional artist and genuine free spirit. We rejoice that she is no longer suffering and take comfort in the knowledge we will see her again.

Another vacation together. She always made fun of how Kat would only go to her when she was pouting.

Suzanne and her girls came into my life during my early teen years, she welcomed me into their lives with smiles, hugs, and a sense of belonging that was missing in my life at the time. I believe it made a huge positive impact on the way those years went for me and all the years since. I love Suzanne and her family I am grateful for them all. Farewell, for now, Suzanne, with much love and gratitude, Terri

To the Wilden family-I'm so very sorry for your loss. I worked with your dad in Hastings for 15 years, and heard many, many stories of Sue, Lill, Joe and the rest. All of Bob's kids were special to him, and he was so proud of all of you! I wish you peace and good memories of Suzanne. I'm so sorry. Lee Brown
