Eunice M. Sulentich

Eunice M. Sulentich, 105 of Wabasha, passed away Monday, April 24, 2023, at Gundersen – St Elizabeth Health Care Center, Wabasha, MN.
Eunice Mae was born January 5, 1918, in Detroit, MI to Frederick and Henrietta (Baird) Gagnier. She graduated from Denby High School, Detroit MI in 1935 and, after graduating, attended The Business Institute and Wayne State University in Detroit. On April 12, 1943 she married Steve Sulentich and together they raised three children: Stephen, Joseph, and Laura.
In addition to raising a family, Eunice worked as an assistant buyer for Crowley's Department Store in Detroit MI, and as an office and store manager for Cluett Peabody & Company in Eveleth MN. She also served as city clerk for the City of Leonidas, MN. In her youth, Eunice enjoyed golf, swimming, horseback riding and tennis - especially tennis. She also was a member of the Detroit Equestrienne Club specializing in organized drill. In later years, she traveled; walked daily with friends; read everything she could get a hold of; and enjoyed every second spent with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
When asked by her physician for her secret for her long and healthy life, Eunice thought for a moment, and then answered, “Plenty of exercise when I was young.”
Eunice is survived by two children: Joseph Sulentich and Laura Fredrickson; two grandchildren:
Curt (Stacey) Dimberio and Angela (Jacob) Fahl; six great grandchildren: Cursta and Taran Dimberio; Avery, Julia, Jude, and Jonah Fahl; many nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews; and one terrific sister-in-law, our Aunt Shirley.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Steve; son Stephen; and sister Doris Farrell.
Graveside services will be at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Detroit, MI on a later date.
An avid reader and long life learner, Eunice would like memorials directed to: Wabasha Public Library in Wabasha MN and Gundersen St. Elizabeth Health Care Center in Wabasha MN. 
Services entrusted to Abbott Funeral Home & Crematory, Wabasha, MN.  Words of sympathy or remembrance may be left at
