Sue’s passion for arts and crafts, painting, sewing, and gardening shone through in all she did.

However, above all her accomplishments and hobbies, Sue's proudest achievement was undoubtedly her family. As a devoted wife, Sue stood by her husband through thick and thin, embodying the true meaning of partnership and commitment. Together, they created a home filled with laughter, love, and unwavering support. Sue's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were the pride and joy of her life. She showered them with love, encouragement, and wisdom, guiding them along life's journey with grace and understanding. Sue cherished her sister, Michelle, dearly and held a special place in her heart for all her nieces and nephews. Her family was her greatest treasure, and she leaves behind beautiful memories that will live on in their hearts forever. Sue also shared deep connections with many lifelong friends whom she held dear to her heart.
