Not sure what to say?

Sue was a dear friend who will be missed. She was kind, thoughtful, never complained, and was always concerned about others. A group of us often played Upwords with her & we used to joke that we needed to “think like Sue” as she usually beat us! Good memories. Looking forward to the day we’ll meet again.

Her smile, her laugh. Always willing to help with that tough homework question. We look forward to walking with her someday. May Gods peace be with her family.

My condolences to the family. Sue was a beautiful caring person.

I also worked with Sue at the DDS. She was friendly and always had a smile. I admired her tenacity and grit to not let anything get her down. I never heard her complain which I think his a silent testimony to her faith. Sympathy to her family.

I have never met a more courageous person as Sue. She never was defined by her health conditions! She lived a full life on her terms.

Sue was one of my first childhood friends. Our families were farmers in the New Holland area. I remember playing board games at her house and trying to “cook” for her family. I reconnected with Sue and other friends several years ago at an alumni banquet. Recently we enjoyed visiting with House Party. I will always remember and admire Sue’s steadfast faith.

I have known Sue since childhood. I have memories of her at Zion Lutheran Church in New Holland and on through our high school years. God had a plan for Sue. She touched, challenged and inspired so many. Sue was kind, smart, funny, and hard-working. Her faith was strong. We reconnected a few years ago and enjoyed playing Upwords and sharing our faith. During covid lockdowns, six of us from high school got together on Houseparty. Sue was always a joy to be with. Dance with Jesus dear friend!...

I worked with Sue for many years. She was a great resource for the entire bureau. She shared her expertise with grace. I always admired her work ethic and her dedication to finding answers to difficult questions. Prayers for her family and loved ones.

Sue was a truly beautiful person! Although we were not close personal friends, her loving personality brought peace to all who have the privilege of working around her.
