  • Sue was such a caring and giving person. She touched many lives of children who were in need. I will miss seeing her smile and our conversations about humanity.

  • Susan’s death “diminishes” so many – the neighborhood, the world -as a good human being , a wonderful spirit is no longer among us. As one who will miss Susan’s neighborliness, her kindnesses to me, I express my deepest condolences to Joe and her family. May they find consolation in that Susan has “wrapped the drapery of her couch about her and lay down to pleasant dreams”.

  • Susan, you will be missed very much always a welcoming and loving spirit. We will miss you.
    Our condolences to Joe & family.
