She was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on May 1, 1931.  Susie was the daughter of Carl and Marian Seifert, of Jefferson, Wisconsin.

Susie was preceded in death by her first husband, Robert Ian Perina, her brother, Carl John Seifert, and her second husband, George Philip Steinmetz, M.D.  She is survived by her two children, Anne (Tom O’Reilly) Perina of Mequon, Wisconsin, and Bob (Sarah) Perina of York, Pennsylvania; and her three grandchildren, Emily Perina, Laura Perina, and Carl Perina.  Susie is survived by two stepchildren, Susan (John) Gubner, George (Julia) Steinmetz, and one step grandchild, Joseph Ahrens.
