Sue was such a sweet, caring person, always willing to lend a helping hand. In our 66 years together Sue wore many Hats. She was my co- worker, teacher, mentor, co conspirator, surrogate Mother, but most of all she was my very special Friend. I will miss her everyday. I don’t have to worry about her now because she’s in the “ Arms Of The Angels “

I only got to see Sue once after I left WF but I will always remember that smile on her face whenever she was laughing! Which was often

Sue was an exceptionally good individual. She was kind and loving smart and had a passion for doing things the right way. I don’t remember Sue ever greeting me with anything other than a big smile and a hug. I will truly miss her.
