Sue was a joy to be around. Her smile, her laugh, her humor brightened my day. Sue cared about people and made everyone feel welcomed in her home. It was a pleasure to play bridge with Sue. We had such good times. I will dearly miss her. My sympathy to you Bob and your family.

Sue was such a wonderful person and our family loved her SO much! We have so many wonderful memories of the fun times our families had together. Turtle Lake memories are absolutely the best.

So sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. She was a wonderful person with the most delightfully wicked sense of humor. We met playing Bridge when we both lived in Fargo. I live in Omaha now, but thankfully got to spend a morning with her when we were in Mesa last November. She couldn’t visit very long because she had to get to a Bridge game! She was so excited about the twins. She loved them even though she never got to meet them. She will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to Bob and all of her family.
