I watch the 2 daughters I have and am reminded of the special bond between sisters. My mother, Nancy, younger sister to Aunt Sue, forever taught me that cherished moments often include times with siblings. I recognize that wholeheartedly today and celebrate all that is "Susan Brownie".
I have known Sue since 1952, when my oldest brother Doug and Sue fell in love and were married. It immediately seemed like Sue had always been part of our family. Although I have not lived in Marin for many decades, over the years, on trips back to Marin, I have always enjoyed Sue's company and visits around her kitchen table, sometimes with other family members. I remember family gatherings and swims in their wonderful pool. She has always been easy to be around. I agree that she was warm, gracious and forthright. I admire her for the way she handled her final illness, and Scott for taking such good care of her. I will miss her. Love to all, Ann Foster
Sue's and Doug's friendship was always very special to Jim and me, and we spent many happy hours together with the Sheehans and Fernbachers. She will be greatly missed by all.
Sue Ballinger a.k.a. Aunt Sue will be missed. A great person with a kind heart and a great laugh. I will miss the open-door policy that she always had if ever in the neighborhood. Say hi to uncle Doug for me...
Sue will truly be missed. Mrs. B was a great friend and a wonderful Mom to all of us - I will always have memories of swimming at the Ballingers, sleepovers and spending weekends up at Alpine. She was one of a kind.
