Laura Sue Dansby
Laura Sue Dansby, of Fowlerville Michigan, passed away on September 21, 2021 at age 76. "Susie" was born in Lansing, Michigan in 1945 to Gerald and Laura Douglas. She grew up in Webberville on a dairy farm and graduated from Webberville High School. She married the love of her life, Bruce Dansby, in August 1963 and moved to Williamston where Bruce was a hired hand with his father on the Wil-Ru Farm. Then they moved to Mason to take a position at Lewvina Farm and raised their three sons there.
Bruce and Susie bought their own farm in Fowlerville Michigan in 1989, and with their sons, ran a beautiful purebred Holstein Dairy until 2009 when the farm switched over to crop farming. Susie worked on the farm and at Dart Bank and Lloyd Miller & Sons to help support the farm in addition to being a wife, mother, and grandmother.
She was very active in the Ladies Ministry and Children's Program at Vantown Community Church. She was married there, celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary there, and will have her funeral reception there. She loved children both at church and her own grandchildren, whom she helped raise, and was an unbelievably generous and loving Grandmother. She was the heart and soul of her family and the sweetest person that anyone could ever meet with the patience and compassion of a saint. She spent her life in the service of others.
Her memory is cherished by her loving husband Bruce Dansby of 58 years, her sons: Jeffrey (Bonnie) Dansby, Timothy (Deb) Dansby, and John (Janna) Dansby, her grandchildren: Savannaugh, Shailynn, Gage, Benjamin, and Nicholas, her step-grandchildren: Parker and Presley, great step-grandchild: Blakeleigh Rose, and her brothers: Don (Lorna) Douglas, Keith (Judy) Douglas, Kaye (Marilynn) Douglas, and Warren (Ida) Douglas.
