Lucille S. Suennen, 91, of Wagner, Wis., passed away Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018, at Bay Area Medical Center, Marinette, Wis. She was born Dec. 15, 1926, in Forest Lake, Minn., to the late Franklin and Lilly (Anderson) Johnson.  
   At a young age, she worked at Munsing Wear as a seamstress and became floor supervisor. Lucille married Lavern Johnson June of 1944 in western Wisconsin; he died in 1945. She later married Raymond Suennen on Nov. 26, 1947, in Center City, Minn.; he preceded her in death Sept. 24, 2007. Lucille worked as a cook in a logging camp for a year. She later created and published The Handworker Helper Magazine which she published from home and grew to a subscription rate of over 2600. She eventually sold the magazine and later created a new one, The Country Crafter. Lucille was very artistic and able to teach herself by simply observing someone else doing a task. She began oil painting 10 years ago and quickly became very proficient. She enjoyed helping others learn and was a great teacher. She also enjoyed making crafts, quilts, dolls, teddy bears and dishtowels and sold them out of her home and at craft shows. She was a member of SS. Joseph and Edward Parish.
