Sue possessed a warm, friendly, compassionate spirit that kindled instant and genuine fondness from the people she met. She adored her grandchildren, Mckenzie and Hunter, who were the light of her life. She enjoyed gardening, baking, decorating, and entertaining, often hosting elaborate, themed holiday events for the children of her family and friends. She enjoyed watching the wildlife that constantly ventured into her yard. For the past several years, she and Bruce have spent their winters in Las Vegas, Nev., enjoying the sunshine, entertainment, and each other’s company.

Sue was a very sweet and gentle person. She always had a kind word to say whenever she greeted you.
