Susan was a trailblazer for women like me. She was a strategic thinker and a great advisor. I hope you know how much she meant to so many.

Sue fought the good fight, faith strong to the end. "God´s got this," she would say. And she was right. Sue enjoyed life and pushed through every challenge. She will be missed.
