Mrs. Pelc was born on Jan. 16, 1945, at Salida, Colorado, the daughter of Kenneth J. and Leah A. (Crymbal) Thompson. She was united in marriage to Harlan J. Pelc on June 27, 1964, at Buena Vista, Colorado. He preceded her in death on Aug. 31, 2014. She is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, John and Kristin Pelc and Kenneth and Dorothy Pelc, all of St. Paul; one daughter and son-in-law, Marci and Brian Jordan of Burwell; and one brother and sister-in-law, Jim and Linda Foreman of Buena Vista, CO. She is also survived by 9 grandchildren, Tim Jordan, Bill Jordan, Haylee Jordan, Scott Jordan, DezeRay Pelc, Morgan Pelc, Lukas Pelc, Sarah Pelc and Artina Pelc; one great-granddaughter, Braelin Pelc; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Arnold and Jean Pelc of Spencer; sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Nola Miller of Cushing, Delores Nelson of Gregory, SD, Doris Kocian of Butte, and Roger Roth of Spencer. Susie grew up and received her education in Buena Vista. As a young girl she was active in the Rainbow Girls. She was a 1963 graduate of Buena Vista High School. After she and Harlan were married they lived in Buena Vista until 1966, when the couple moved to O'Neill, later living in Spencer and Butte. When living in Butte, the couple milked cows, did custom haying and she worked at the local nursing home. In 1980, they moved to Worms and she worked as a maid for Ramada Inn in Grand Island. In 1984, they moved to St. Paul and she worked at Heritage Living Center for the next 10 years. She then enjoyed retirement and being a grandma. Susie loved crocheting, sewing, cross stitch, gardening, and baking and decorating cakes. In addition to her husband, Harlan, she was preceded in death by her parents and an infant son, Thomas William Pelc. Memorials are suggested to the St. Paul Senior Center or to the family's choice.
To the family of Susie, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Susie will hold special memories in my heart of our school days and being neighbors kids, we shared many great times growing up. My Dad was the "Match Maker" he intruded Susie to Harlan, he thought they would make a great couple, he was right. She was a great friend and will be missed.

To the family of my Buena Vista friend, Susie Pelc, my heart aches for your loss. What a gentle, loving, kind and fun soul she was. I just can not drink a Pepsi without thinking of her; memories from 1963! She may be gone, but she will continue to live in the heart of each of you.
