Dear Tom, Matt and James, I am so sorry for your loss and hope that the comfort of your family and friends will help to ease your sorrow.
I have such fond memories of spending time with Sue, at school, out for lunch, or as a guest at your house.
Sue was the most gracious hostess, loyal friend, and fun loving companion. Always dressed so beautifully, full of laughter and stories, so proud of all of her family, Sue enjoyed life.
Thinking of you, and sending our deepest sympathy,
Evie, Alan and family

Sending my deepest condolences to Sue’s family & friends for your loss. Sue was so welcoming to me when I came to work for the Plymouth Public Schools. She was loved by so many colleagues at PCIS. I remember her wonderful retirement celebration at Plymouth Plantation & all the admiration of Sue shown in the many speeches made that special evening.
God Bless Sue! She touched so many children & teachers and will be missed by many!

Hi Matt,
Hope everyone is doing ok, I know this is an incredibly hard time. Since flying isn't an option for us right now, we are sad that we cannot be with you. We both have had colds and mine had me getting a Covid test Friday morning, fortunately negative, just a cold. Did want you all to know you are in our thoughts and it is hard being far away.
I will be gathering up some PCIS friends soon and will be planning a Parkinson's fundraiser on Sue's honor in the Spring. She touched so many and we want to celebrate her life and work. I will be lighting a candle for her Wednesday at St. Marys.

Love Kathy

It was always fun to watch Sue with her grandchildren. She loved them so much. They loved her special treats (and so did we) and love she shared. We will make sure they know she loved them dearly.

To Tom and the family,

My family and I will miss Mrs. Sue. As neighbors, we would always see Mrs. Sue and Tom walking around the neighborhood, enjoying themselves and waving at people. We will miss taking our boys to their house on Halloween for 'trick o treat ". And we will miss her sweets during Christmas at Rich and Jane house for the annual Christmas dinner.

Mrs. Sue was a nice person with a great, warm smile. She will definitely be missed.

I will always remember Sue as one of my fist friends after I had my son. We both joined mother’s morning out! We became good friends and our boys were always together. We shared many birthday s and Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve together. She was always ready to bake for any event.
Then we became part of a group of teachers and mothers. We went to each other s weddings , dinners, and many special events. She was always ready for fun.
We will miss your laughter ,kindness ,and friendship. Rest In Peace my wonderful friend. You have had a long road.

All my memories of my sister Susan are bound by the love of a treasured family life, championed by our loving and devoted mother and father. Rewarding memories include, to name just a few, a childhood riding wooden horses and playing in our doll house handcrafted by our father; family dinner together and Sunday dinner following mass with a delicious dessert baked by our loving Grandmother Gordon.

Without question, Susan's baking skills mirrored our Grandmother Gordon. And, her dinner parties our mother's recipes to include delicious beef stroganoff, roast beef dinner with round the roast potatoes, and tuna-ala-king on nights our father was on business travel.

Our memories with Susan are endless and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

With my dearest love for Susan, Evelyn

Susan was a special, warm loving sister. She was always planning exciting sites for us to enjoy in Plymouth like kitchen and holiday house tours, and having lunches with a glass of wine at the Mile Post and Daniel Webster Inn. Susan always had us on the go with shopping trips to Duxbury, Kingston, Norwell and Derby Street. She definitely gave definition to the phrase "Shop till you drop!" Susan will be missed dearly and loved always. Liz

Susan was a special sister to all of us. We were very blessed with her love and devotion to our family. We often referred to her as the Pilgrim mother. She was born on November 25th which coincides with Thanksgiving this year. A day to be grateful for all her caring and love that she shared with her friends and family. I will miss you and love you forever.
