My condolences to Sue's family. I worked with her at Wesselman's Cafeteria in North Park many years ago. We used to tease about the "two Sue's". Prayers for everyone.

To Toby, Brandon, Daniel and Leyette: I met Sue in the 1980's in Owensboro on the dance floor with her best friend, at that time, Shirley, at the executive Inn. We knew then, that, we were going to be life friends. She was very talented at her work as she asked me to work with her, after my ALCOA days. We got along great as long as she did not paint my outlets. We have kidded about that incident so much. She was very proud of her family even though, some of you gave her a hard time. I remember Daniel coming home from the army; Toby, I will never forget your foot going through the ceiling; Leyette helping paint my place in Haubstadt and Brandon. She was a hard worker as long as she had her cigarettes close by. We have such great memories of us going dancing, working and sometimes picnic. She had a big heart and would help anyone in need. She was so loved and appreciated by her clients and friends. May she rest in peace.

I will always remember Sue as the most generous and giving person I have ever known. She was like a mother to me at a time in my life when I desperately needed guidance and support... and she didn’t have to be. She did it because she had a huge heart and a natural instinct to help those in need. She was like a grandmother to my son and went above and beyond to show us love and support when others had let us down. I’m so very sorry to her children and grandchildren for your loss. I know for a fact that heaven has gained an angel and she will be protecting and watching over you always. Love and prayers from the Meier family
