Susan Kay Sperstad was born September 15th, 1971 in Madelia, MN to Donald and Marilyn (Nelson) Sperstad. Susan was a hard worker at a young age. She began waitressing at 15 years old at the Hometown Cafe in St. James and was a server, cook and bartender for over 25 years at Village Inn in LaSalle, MN.Susan graduated from Madelia High School. She had two beautiful children Vanessa and Tyler or as she lovingly called them "Noose" and "Tooty". They were her entire world. Susan's love for her 2 babies will follow them throughout their lives and although she is not here with them physically they both feel her presence and know she will be with them every step of the way.Susan loved to cook and NO ONE can or ever will compete with her lasagna. Her love was shown through cooking, baking and caring for those who were special to her. She would often be heard suggesting "lets go for a cruise", maybe to Jackpot Casino, a rummage sale, or someplace to get a plate of biscuits and gravy. The destination itself was not as important as the cruise and the time spent with others in the car. Family and friends were important to Susan. Her special friends Chasity, Dana and Chris became family and were loved as such. She loved working with flowers and plants and her 2 dogs Rico and BeBe. Susan was a fighter. She fought for 5 long years with cancer, of which she had the love and support of her family and friends along side of her to encourage and support.
Susan is survived by her daughter, Vanessa Raymond of Minneapolis; her son, Tyler Valladolid of Butterfield; brothers Mark Blekestad of Madelia and Rick (Barb) Blekestad of Duluth and Tim Sperstad of St. James; sister, Nancy Buckingham of Madelia; and father of Tyler, Lorenzo Valladolid of St. James. She is preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Marilyn Sperstad; brother Ron Blekestad; Vanessa's father, Jeff Raymond; and her friend, Lauren Tierney-Kleinschmidt.
