Susan Jane (Kulzer) Brummond was born in 1946 in rural North Dakota. She was the sixth (fourth surviving) child of Alphonse and Luella Kulzer. While growing up on the farm, she preferred being outside with her dad and brothers, and she developed a great love of horses. As a teenager, she attended St. Francis Academy where she was a stand-out student and promising saxophone player.
For most of her adulthood, Susan lived in Aberdeen, South Dakota where she and her husband Brad stayed very busy with their five children. Throughout her career, she held many different positions including personal banker, retail wholesale shopper, bookkeeper, real estate agent, and MLS secretary. She was smart and meticulous about everything she did.
Susan was on the school board and active with her church. She spent a great deal of time volunteering at a therapeutic horse-riding center, working directly with disabled children, and helping Alzheimer's patients.
She also prided herself on maintaining a beautiful home for her family. Susan was incredibly social and a very loyal friend. Her family loved watching her work the floor at the country club after church — even if it meant they had to wait an hour to eat because everyone wanted to talk with her.
In 2000, Susan and Brad moved to Monument, Colorado to retire. Susan had grown up visiting the state during her childhood and was excited to be closer to family. When her husband died unexpectedly, she said, "I guess I'll need to learn how to put the horse trailer on by myself." Even through great sadness, Susan continued to be a go-getter who never stopped.
In her 60's, she went on countless adventures with her horse Reba and even rode a mule to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. She also regularly traveled in her RV to see her grandchildren. She was a beacon of strength, discipline, and kindness to everyone who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, granddaughters Anjuli Kerlin and Layla Leffler, great-granddaughter Madeline Zoelle, and son-in-law Howard Parker. She is survived by her loving children Todd (Jamie) Brummond, Stephanie (Paul) Coughlin, Kari Brummond, Kristyn (Jade) Leffler, and Jon (Dreama) Brummond, nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
