I will always have great memories of Sue! She was great with the kids and staff at Palo Verde. She would discipline her “kids” in a loving caring way! Oh by the way she was known by the kids as Ms. Chicle (chicle is gum in Spanish) No gum tolerance ? she was just great!! I personally loved it when I would work on Saturdays at Palo Verde open gym with her; she was always so active and exuberant!! She will truly be missed by so many of us!

We will miss Ms. Bruder. We had lots of fun with her at Palo Verde, especially when she took people's gum. We also had fun with her when she coached our basketball team. Our prayers are with the family.
