Susan was born May 31, 1966, in Dubuque, Iowa, the daughter of Edward and Patricia (Nilles) Steinberg. She graduated from Wahlert Catholic High School in 1981. She worked at several Dubuque businesses including Nordstrom's and Sedwick before moving to Cedar Rapids.
She enjoyed being with her family, especially her cousins in the "Granny's Lunch Bunch." One of Susan's greatest loves in life were her many dogs, who are waiting for her at the rainbow bridge.
Susan was a caring individual. She will continue to live on in others by giving the gift of life by being an organ donor.
She is survived by her parents, Edward and Patricia Steinberg of Dubuque; one brother, Christopher (Julie) Steinberg of Cedar Rapids; her niece, Maggie; nephew, Thomas; along with aunts, uncles and many cousins.
Susan was preceded in death by her grandparents, Al and Lucille Nilles and Al and Leone Steinberg.
The family requests no flowers and they would like to thank St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics along with the Iowa Donor Network for all the care, kindness and compassion they gave.
