I grew up with Sue on Scrabble Creek, Gauley Bridge. She was beautiful inside & out. She was special to so many of us at GBHS and she left her mark as a caring sincere friend. She’ll be missed. May she Rest In Peace!

I have so many fond memories of Sue. She was always so fun, caring and genuine. I’ll never forget all the Brookside memories, especially the Doublemint twins! I’ll also never forget how excited she was when those beautiful daughters were born; she was born to be a mama! Even though I haven’t seen her for several years, she holds a special place in my heart and will be missed. My condolences to her much loved family.

To the family,

My deepest condolences for your loss. I knew Sue through our work together with Xocai Healthy Chocolate. Besides being a wonderful mentor in the business to me, we became friends, had fun times, and studied the Bible together. Most of all I will remember Sue for how caring she was. She would always ask about how I was doing and sincerely want to know. She was genuine, and her love for her family and pets was evident. I would like to know about a memorial service please. I am praying for the family.

Mrs. Troyer was one of the most welcoming and caring individuals I know. I remember seeing her during my undergrad graduate where she gave me one of my most precious gifts: a framed picture of my beautiful fiancé that I had my eye on after seeing it at her house. I remember how she opened her home to me and my family as we moved across Indiana to Chicago. I remember the amazing quilt she made by hand for Mandy and me to share in our new home. I remember how she watched our pup, Dexter, when we were in a pinch. She was loving of both people and animals. I’m so happy to see these traits in her daughters and the impact she had on those around her will last for lifetimes.
