My Aunt Sue was always the most supportive woman I could have asked for. She was my godmother and I always felt happy and loved with her.
Any achievement in my life she was among the first to know because I always loved knowing she was proud of me. From college to Navy to my wife, daughter and the news of my son she was in my corner and so happy for me that I felt even more joy in these.
I love you always Aunt Sue and I will miss you. Rest easy and thank you for everything

Joe, Larry and families - it was a shock when my sister, Jo, notified me of Sue's passing. I will always remember her as such a lively gal! The Rayners were always such good friends to Mom, Dad and our family. I am so sorry and saddened to know Sue has gone. Take care in the times ahead; it's a tough journey.

Dear Joe and Family
I will always remember Sue and our days together so long ago at the Campus North Parent-School Organization.
She made a fine Madame President and helped our school through those initial days when computers and the internet were just coming into vogue; her
decisions and leadership greatly benefited our students. She was always so inclusive and friendly toward everyone. And so organized !
Such a joy to know and work with her. I am sorry for your loss.

Sue was one of the best bosses I ever had. I worked with her at the UB bookstore for almost 2 years. I always looked forward to going to work because of her. We laughed about everything together, we gossiped, and we enjoyed working together. Sue reminded me of my grandmother who passed away a few years before I met her. I loved Sue very much, she will be missed greatly.

Dear Mr. Jowett, Mark and Becca, Larry and Theresa, Paul, Jennifer, and Julie -

I am so thankful for the chance I had to be known and loved by Mrs. Jowett for the past 15 years, ever since Mark and I started working together. She was always interested, supportive, kind, quick to remember details and share a laugh or a hug of encouragement. She taught me to appreciate so many little joys - a good book, time with loved ones - and she was truly so happy when anything good happened to anyone she, so generous. Her sudden passing has been so difficult, and you all are on my mind so much. You were all so completely loved by this completely wonderful woman! Thank you for sharing her with the rest of us who are now grieving right along with you.

Love Cindy
