Susan King

SueKing_rgbSusan Alice King (nee Barc, Bialkowski), 62, of Reedsburg, was welcomed into the loving arms of her savior after living life to the fullest despite several years of poor health.

Sue was born Sept. 22, 1951, in Chicago, Ill., the daughter of Chester and Helen Barc. Sue spent her childhood keeping up with her brother, Steve, and his friends and caring for her sister, Christine. She was an excellent swimmer, tennis player and mathematician.

From her first marriage came Sue’s lifelong commitment and love for her three children. During their tender years Sue exposed her children to as many opportunities as she could with perhaps the most memorable being driving excursions to Lower Wacker Drive in Chicago on hot summer nights. In 1992, Sue brought her children to Wisconsin and worked in accounts payable/receivable positions at several local companies, such as Sysco, Seneca Foods and the former Phillip’s Pharmacy.

It was during these years she met the love of her life, Timothy D. King, whom she married on Dec. 13, 1997. Together the couple frequented car and military vehicle shows creating a network of friends that spans the globe. In 2003, Sue began to face what would become permanent medical challenges, and she met that challenge by using every moment possible to help others. She was instrumental in starting the St. Vincent De Paul store in Reedsburg, was a disaster relief chaplain and ran the benevolence program at Trinity Baptist Church in Reedsburg. Her volunteerism took her to help victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and flood victims in Duluth, Minn.

She is survived by her husband, Tim King, of Reedsburg; children, Joseph (Tasha) Bialkowski, Waunakee; Emily (Brady) Bialkowski,  Gays Mills, Wis.; and Walter (Kristin) Bialkowski, Germantown; grandchildren, Wrigley, Victoria, Sophie, Grant and Colin; father; brother; sister; various aunts, uncles, other family and a host of friends. She said she truly enjoyed her church, Trinity Baptist.
