Obituary for Susan K. Coronado

June 1, 1947 - November 15, 2017
Spring Grove, Illinois | Age 70

Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother


Susan K. Coronado, age 70, of Spring Grove, passed away Wednesday, November 15, 2017. She was born June 1, 1947.
Susan had a long-varied and accomplished career. Ahead of her time, Susan was the only woman majoring in mechanical engineering at Northwestern University 1965-1969 and started her professional career at Bell & Howell. As her career progressed she changed gears and moved on to Abbott Labs in the finance department. While working full time at Abbott and raising her son as a single mother, Susan attended night school and earned an MBA from Northwestern University. She became a partner at a successful business brokerage (Bloom & Assoc.) and for 12 years was the CFO at Debes Corp in Rockford. She ended her career managing assisted care living facilities in Northern Illinois.
She loved Spring Grove and was active in the community. Susan was on the Board of Trustees and the 4th of July Committee. Most of all, she loved her family and took great delight in spoiling them whenever possible, and was loved, in turn, by them. She will be greatly missed.
Susan is survived by her loving son, Anthony (Katherine) Coronado; cherished grandchildren: Kelly (Nick) Mercurio, Kara Coronado, and Robert Coronado; and dear great-granddaughter, Marlee Mercurio.
She is preceded in death by her parents.
Visitation will be held from 12:00pm until 4:00pm on Saturday, November 18, 2017, at Colonial Funeral Home, 591 Ridgeview Drive, McHenry. Interment will be private.
