Just read about Sue passing, very sad news. Graduated with her and fortunately got to meet with her again at our 45th class reunion. The same kind, pleasant, down to earth person I had known years ago. Will always remember her in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Susan’s passing, it was a shock to me although it has been so many years since we have seen each other. Growing up in our neighborhood (Bradford & Maple Street) left so many fun and crazy memories. Loved hanging out with Sue and Sherri...going to the beach, sleepovers, camping out, going to dances, walking up to Andy’s for candy and soda. I enjoyed all the pictures posted and send my sincere sympathy to your family!
Rest In Peace, Sue ❤️

Don, Chelsea, Aubrey & Family,

I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. There are no words to ease this pain. Only time, and a lot of prayers. Your mother was one of the kindest human beings I have ever known. She was the ONLY ONE that took me in when I was pregnant for Trevor and homeless. Trevor would not be the man he is today if it were not for her and all her years of sacrifice, in so many ways. She was the most amazing nurse and had such a strong faith in God. We know she is home in eternal rest, but this does not make it any easier for the ones who loved her most. Know you will see her again, and she will ALWAYS be with you.

I have so many wonderful memories of Susan so I’ll try to keep this a little short.
Susan was so much fun to be around. She had this ORA about her that was indescribable.
She was so funny. She could take a joke. I called her Suey.
She was extremely intelligent.
She loved her family.
She has a beautiful soul.
She was a great cook.
I met Susan working at Asheville Family Health.
She was a great nurse. I enjoyed working with her so much.
She always made us laugh. She was always in a good mood. Everyone loved her!
There will never be another Suey.
Heaven has gained a beautiful soul.
