Susan Margaret Krumrey was born on October 24, 1947, in Bemidji, MN, to Dorothy (Baker) and Robert Krumrey. She grew up on a farm near Bemidji and went to the nearby country school. Later she moved to the Big Lake area where Susan earned her GED at Westonka School. On September 13, 1964, she was united in marriage to Jerome Edward Farr in Champlin by a Hennepin County Justice of the Peace. The two first made their home in Champlin and later moved to Anoka, Coon Rapids, Minneapolis, and Big Lake before settling in Villard in 2000. Susan worked for REO Plastics in Maple Grove for 18 years while the family lived in the Twin Cities.
Susan enjoyed canning the vegetables that Jerome grew in his garden, sewing, and making quilts. Her quilts were wonderful and she graciously shared them with her children and grandchildren. When her children were young she would make homemade bread and she taught her daughters how to cook. She liked to go fishing and often went with her son and grandkids. She was very helpful whenever her children or grandchildren needed anything. She also had a good sense of humor and could actually be quite funny and make people laugh. Her family will remember Susan as loving, caring and very special.
