Lucille M. Sutter, 100, of Dubuque, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at Manor Care Health Services, Dubuque.

Lucille, the daughter of Joseph and Margaret (Jaeger) Mai, was born on November 1, 1918. She married LaVerne Fischer and they raised three children on their family farm at Five Points. Several years after their divorce she married Tom Sutter, who owned and operated Sutter’s Bakery in Dubuque. Lucille worked beside Tom at the bakery every day until they retired. She enjoyed keeping her house clean, (she was lovingly called “Mrs. Clean” by friends and neighbors), cooking and baking, playing cards with family and friends, and going to Bingo with her mother. She and Tom enjoyed going to Minnesota on annual fishing trips with her parents and sometimes taking grandchildren. She was a wonderful, loving person and will be missed.

Lucille was preceded in death by her parents, brother Melvin Mai and his wife Bernice, LaVerne Fischer, their son Donald, and Tom Sutter. She is survived by her daughter Janet (Richard Tonnesen), son Dale (Marcy), numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Special thanks to her granddaughter, Shelly and husband Bob Berger who visited her every Sunday and looked after her needs.

At Lucille’s request private interment services will be held at Linwood Cemetery. The family requests no flowers. Memorials may be sent to Hospice of Dubuque or to charity of your choice. Her family would like to give special thanks to Hospice of Dubuque and to Manor Care staff for their loving care. Arrangements are entrusted to Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 John F. Kennedy Rd., Dubuque.

Dear Janet, Dale, and families,
I sent an email earlier but I mentioned Mr. and Mrs. Fisher as Mrs. Sutter's Folks, I meant Mr and Mrs. Mai. I got to know them when I worked at Sutter's. Again, take care and cherish your fond memories of this awesome lady who called people honey and meant it and treated her employees so very well. Cathy Klein
