Sue is a coworker, hilarious, genuine, kind, caring and always-always talked about her girls. I hope they know how proud their Mom is of them. She will be greatly missed by all.

We have lost an extraordinary person way to early. I had the good fortune to know Sue not only through our family activities but also in the classroom as one of her teachers at Northeast
Tech. She will be deeply missed but will be remembered fondly by us all. Although I will be unable to attend today's service I want to extend my condolences and prayers to her family and friends. Stay strong!

I am very sorry to hear of Sue's passing. I've worked with Sue for years at Verizon, and also went to High School (The Voke) with her. We often reminisced about our school years, and visited it together on a couple of occasions. She was a smart, funny, kind and creative person. I'll never forget and always treasure a special item she handmade for me when my family suffered a loss. I will truly miss her. May she rest in peace.

I met Sue years ago through Verizon. She was ALWAYS so positive and in great spirits even through difficult times. I'm going to miss talking to my friend. I never met her 2 girls... but they should know that she was the proudest mom. Always mentioning her happiness through their achievements.
Why do the good souls have to leave so early?
