Sue is survived by her daughter Caroline, son Ray and his wife Claudia, daughter Sherry and her husband Scott, daughter Robin and her husband Kevin. Also, granddaughter Lizbeth, granddaughter Collene and her husband Frank, grandson Scott and his wife Lana, grandson Randy and his wife Ashlee, and four great grandchildren; Austin, Avery, Juliette, and Abigail.
