Susan Mohler, 61

September 26, 2009

Susan Elizabeth Dowd Mohler, age 61, of Marion, died Thursday, September 24, 2009 at Pleasantview in Kalona. She fought lung cancer for two years and wanted everyone to know that it is not just a disease of smokers. A visitation for friends and family will be held at Kruse-Phillips Funeral Home, 209 E. 7th St., Tama on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 from 4 -- 6:30 PM, followed by a time for sharing memories at 6:30 PM. Private burial services will be held at a later date.


Susan was born March 12, 1948, in Toledo, the daughter of Irwin and Fern (Jolls) Dowd.

She was a nurse practitioner, most recently employed at the Lipid Research Center at UIHC.

Susan was a lifelong learner and particularly enjoyed teaching. Her special passion in life was helping her son Jon in his educational endeavors and traveling with him.

She was preceded in death by her father, Irwin Dowd; and a niece, Kris.

Sue is survived by two children, Sherilyn Kay Mohler (Roy Senft) and Jonathan David Mohler, both of Kalona; one granddaughter, Haley Graham of Kalona; one brother, Steven (Beth) Dowd of Coralville; her mother, Fern Dowd of Toledo; and her special dachshund friend Snickers.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts will be given to the Lung Cancer Alliance, an organization dedicated to eliminating lung cancer, and to Iowa City Hospice.
