In Loving Memory
Jean Suzanne Kallmeyer
Sue (Schwitzky) Kallmeyer was born in Minneapolis, MN on July 21, 1933. She grew up in Minneapolis and graduated from the University of Minnesota dental hygiene program in 1953. She joined her husband, Frank, in Heaven on May 22, 2021 after complications with pneumonia and sepsis.
After completing her first year of dental practice in Minneapolis, she took a vacation with a friend to Colorado Springs in the summer of 1954. She went on a Pikes Peak sightseeing tour and met her future husband who happened to be a tour guide while attending Colorado College. She subsequently moved to Colorado Springs in 1956, completed her Colorado Boards and resumed her dental hygiene career.
Sue and Frank married in February 1957 in Minneapolis, and he soon left to fulfill his military service in Bitburg, Germany. After the birth of her eldest son, Jeff, she joined her husband in Germany in 1958. Sue and family returned to the United States in 1959 and shortly thereafter settled in Overland Park, KS. Her family grew with the addition of sons, Frank and Bruce, followed by daughter, Joy.
She is preceded in death by her husband Frank, parents Ernest and Jean Schwitzky, sister Joan Schneider and brother John Schwitzky. She is survived by her sister Marlys Illsley (Minneapolis, MN), her three sons, Jeff (Tomball, TX), Frank (San Diego, CA), Bruce (Overland Park, KS) and daughter Joy Headley (Olathe, KS). Sue has six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Up until recently, she loved her daily walks, golf, bridge, rooting for the University of Kansas and singing in the church choir. She also loved her pet Schnauzers. Sue was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who always made herself available to others. She will be dearly missed.
A private memorial service will be held at Johnson County Funeral Chapel and Memorial Gardens where she will be reunited with her husband Frank.
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We are so glad we got to know your mom. She was a delight to be around and once she got to know us, was able to joke and kid around like she knew us forever.

Ms Jean will be missed.. It was a privilege to be able to care for Ms Jean while she was staying at Healthcare Resort Leawood.
What a wonderful lady! When I would visit KC Sue opened her home to me and made me feel so welcome. Condolences to Jeff and his family!
Some of us called this beautiful intelligent lady ” Moma Sue” She always was concerned for others well being and always tried to help anyone she knew need help, I know she will be truly missed. we love you, you never will be forgotten. You and your family will always be in my prayers.
To Sue’s Family, All my sympathy. Sue was a lovely, kind person and a dear friend. We went to kindergarten together and we graduated Minneapolis North High school together. She stayed with me when she came back for our 60th class reunion. We had the best time. My heart and prayers are with you as we grieve. Jackie Harlow
