Oh Shannon, Wes, and girls, we are so sorry to hear about Sue’s passing. She was like a second mom to me for a good part of my childhood, I will always remember and be grateful for all the nights she shared your hone - and literally her bed - so I had a safe place while my mom worked. I know that is just typical of her to give all she could to care for others. Please email me at eringberg at gmail dot com if you see this so we can see what your family needs and if there will be any more memorial activities once the stay-home order is over. Sending so much love - Erin and Sandy Berg, and family

My Dear Sweet Aunt Sue. Wow, I’m still trying to comprehend she’s gone to Heaven. Aunt Sue was also one of my Best Friends ever! A very key and important part of my growing up over the years. I will cherish all those Summer weekends I would stay with her and Uncle Joe on Collins St. Tommy would stay too sometimes. Those were some of my fondest child and teenage memories! Aunt Sue spent so much time with us Depungs and was always our FIRST choice for Babysitter. We laughed and talked about all the crazy stuff we did while Aunt Sue babysat us just last Summer. Shannon, thank-you for bringing your Mom out to my Dads pool so she could hang out with us all day and night! It was like 3 different times, just this past Summer, and something I cherish! We even did smores around the fire pit. Just like camping with Aunt Sue when we were kids. Aunt Sue, Roberta, and I would be the last 3 people every single year after the McGuire reunion. And Shannon too. We’d sit around the pool, drink a couple beers, and listen to stories about the McGuires. Aunt Sue and I were always very close and is something I will always cherish. All the softball games on VanAuken in our backyard, broken windows and all. Aunt Sue was there for me the night my Mom died too. Thank you Shannon for sharing your Mom with us all these years. We LOVE you and your Daughters and Wes so much!!! Thank-you Uncle Paul for all you did for your baby Sister too! She talked about you all the time and how you always checked on her! And Roberta I know how close you were with Aunt Sue too. All my Cousins, wow she loved us all huh. It’s hard. Let’s all remember the good times and the Values and Unconditional Love she gave all of us Depungs, Scheidels, Mcguires, Davis’, and Pawloskis. This is a little long I know. I could write for another two hours just thinking about all the great times with Aunt Sue! Love you Shannon! See you soon, and lets make more memories this Summer at Uncle Ron’s pool. And yes, I will grill. Lol
