Sue and I got to know each other when she moved out to our Blaine office. We often shared a table in the lunch room and soon we discovered that we shared many likes and dislikes. She would always have her magazines with to read, but we found time to share current events, pop star happenings and much more. A friendship grew out of that.
Fast forward a few years and we were working in the same unit. At some point I started doing a trivia question at 11:00 everyday for the unit to answer for braggers rights and those expensive gifts from the dollar store. I know Sue probably knew most of the answers, but she always left it for the "workers" to answer.
She was a true wit, very smart, and loved her cat Tuna.

Susie Q was one of the first people I met when I started working at Anoka County in 1974. So began our friendship of almost 50 years. So many memories of great times spent together. Susie was one of the most avid readers I knew and in the past few years, we ventured to many independent book stores. She also kept me up on pop culture and great musicians I would not otherwise have known about. I am so going to miss our long lunches with great conversation and lots of laughs!! I'll think of her especially every time I go to Psycho Susie's - a favorite summer lunch spot. I can't believe she's gone!!

What can I say about my best friend other than she was an "Amazing Woman"! Enjoyed so many conversations, shared my woes with her, loved listening to all her knowledge and so much more! "See you later alligator" Love you my dear friend, forever in my heart <3

Sue was a wonderful person that I knew through work at Anoka County. The times we would sit next to each other were very happy times. Sue had such a gift for silly phrases and a keen sense of humor. She would come into work and talk about how her weekend was spent fighting with Tuna (Wendy) her cat. It always brought a well deserved laugh.
Scott you were so lucky to have such a dear sister. She did talk about you often and how lucky she was to have such a great brother. Remember the good times you both had and how much she loved you.

I remember Sue as being the sweetest person. I know that phrase is thrown around a lot without real meaning. I mean it in the sincerest, respectful way possible. Just a joy.
I worked with her for many years. Not always even on same floor or building but on shared cases. She had such a calming effect.
One of a kind.

Susan was a wonderful friend. We spent many Saturdays shopping together at downtown Daytons or at Rosedale Herbergers and then at HarMar Mall
Barnes and Noble. We searched for used CDs and went to concerts. Sue had many lunch pals and went to weekly lunches with each one. She and
Liz Martensen spent many times at Mil Lacs Casino always hoping to win.
Sue always talked about her brother Scott and bragged about his love for
cars. And Sue dearly loved her cat Maisey, "the best cat in Coon Rapids".
Sue will be greatly missed by many.
Her dear friend, Lynda Richardson

My condolences to you Scott. I worked with your sister Sue for many years. I am a cat lady like her and enjoyed hearing about Wendy and Maisey. I remember she had a good sense of humor and always had good magazines and knew the latest celebrity news. I wish she could have had a longer retirement after all those many years of hard work. She will be missed.
