A Celebration of Life
Sue Nicholson Foster
November 9, 1929- February 23, 2013
Sue was a loving Wife, devoted Mother, wonderful Nana, caring Sister and precious Friend. She was graceful, elegant, and regal. These were words that described her always calming presence. Sue loved her family and her life's work was creating a loving atmosphere in the many places she and Jerry called home. Sue embraced the military life and was the Air Force's perfect ambassador. She gallantly accepted the challenges imposed on career military families as they were stationed overseas 7 years. Sue traveled all over the world and loved every minute. Husband of 65 years Jerry a Retired Pilot with a ranking of LT. COL. in the Air force, daughter Susan, son in law Norm, grandchildren Joe and Katy were the focus of her life. The last 35 years Sue and Jerry lived here in the valley to be close to their daughter and grandchildren. They were active, caring grandparents. Sue and Jerry played tennis together winning doubles tournaments. They could also be found on the golf course with grandson Joe, and Sue could gracefully beat him on their local course in Ahwatukee. Sue's beautiful smile was contagious but she had a competitive side too. One such challenge was Championship Bridge, Sue loved to play bridge. Dedicated Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend, Sue's beauty was both inside and out. Sue will be greatly missed by us all but her graceful presence will remain in our hearts. We were blessed to have her in our lives. Private family service.
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
Hug your sorrow to you through the years
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
And I in return comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky
