Susan Lynn Rose Lundberg, age 59, of 111 Jackson Avenue, Warren, died on Thursday, January 3, 2013 at the John & Orpha Blair Hospice Residence, in Warren. Sue displayed tremendous strength and courage as she fought cancer over the last year, inspiring people she touched every day.    
Born on July 20, 1953 in Kane Pennsylvania, Sue was the daughter of Norman and Marilyn (Jones) Rose.

Sue graduated from Kane Area Senior High in 1971 and married her high school sweetheart Patrick (Butch) Lundberg, on April 20th, 1974. She was a fun loving wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, neighbor and true friend to many and her quick wit and kind spirit will be remembered fondly by those who held her dear.
Sue became a Customer Service representative for Blair Corporation in Warren after her children were of school age.  

She loved traveling with her husband and children. In recent years she and Butch made a cross country trip to Oregon and Washington State that was a highlight of her life. At home she kept busy year round, making holiday gifts for others, especially handcrafted quilts, and decorations. Until becoming ill, Sue was active in the United Methodist Church, and for many years volunteered with the after-school LOGOS program for children.  
She was preceded in death by her father, Norman Rose and a niece, Sophie Rose, and two nephews, Brian McQueen and Michael Dunn.  

Surviving are her husband Butch, her mother Marilyn Rose of Kane, a daughter Sarah (Wesley) Johns in Puyallup, Washington, son Landon (Yolanda) in Fuquar-Varina, North Carolina, and grandchildren Liam, Katie, Maggie, and Lucas of Puyallup.  Also surviving are sisters Rebecca (Dennis) Harris, of Kane, Anita (JD) Marcoline, of Erie, Barbara Ackley (fiancé Henry Dahl) of Warren, and brothers Martin (Carol) Rose, Lake Norman, NC and Edward (Cheryl) Rose of Medford, OR., her many nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless caring friends,

Friends will be received at Peterson Blick Funeral Home Inc., 1003 Penna. Ave. E, Warren, PA, on Monday January 7th from 6 to 8 p.m., and in the Dunham Parlors at the First United Methodist Church, 200 Market Street, Warren, for one hour prior to a funeral to be held there at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Sterling, pastor, officiating.

My deep hearted condolences to you and the family. It was always a sheer delight to be in your and Sue’s company either here in NC or Pa. It was very evident why I have the best son-in-law a ‘father’ could ask for after meeting the two of you. You two are the greatest. With tears in my eyes, please understand that Sue will be missed by more than you have met. She was an exceptional Lady.

Butch, Sarah and Landon...
Your mom was such a great lady. I remember many fun times with her when we lived in Warren. I know she will be greatly missed by everyone. It was just in the last couple years we "re-connected" via Facebook. I am glad to have known such a person as Sue...truly inspirational.
Please accept our heartfel sympathy.

Butch and family, I worked with Sue for many years along with Michelle Booth. It was a true pleasure to know her. I lost my mom to the same cancer 2 years ago and know the tremenous strength Sue had in her fight for life. Remember all the years of knowing her children, grandchildren through her words. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

To Butch, Sarah, Landon, Marilyn, Becky, Barb and the Rose family,
I was saddened to hear of Sue's passing from my daughter Jessa. Sue shone with an inner light and peacefulness, yet her sense of purpose always kept her moving forward. I still can hear her melodic chuckle and wonderful sense of humor. Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your wife, mother, daughter, and sister.

Butch & Family,

Was terribly shocked and saddened to hear of Sue's passing. I never heard she was ill. We shared many good times with you quite a few years ago, and I can still remember Sue's sense of humor and the many laughs she gave us....along with that sparkle in her beautiful eyes! God bless her and may she now rest in peace. I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral home, but wanted you all to know that you have my heartfelt sympathy. May God give you the strength to carry you through the days ahead. She so loved her children & grandchildren, she was so proud! She will be missed by many.
Bless you all,
Nancy Maze

God saw Sue getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around her and whispered "Come with Me." Now is the time for Sue to rest for God only takes the best.

My and my family's heart felt sympathy reach out to you.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family with the loss of Sue. She touched the lives of more people than you will ever know. As the apostle Paul said near the end of his life: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Now there is laid for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me on that day: and not to me only, but unto all those that look forward to his coming."
