Sue’s faith was evident in her love for people. She had a servant’s heart. She treated friends as family, comforted and encouraged others with scriptures and kind words. She shared her joy, her laugh, and her home with all who needed it. Her van was always the bus for her children’s sports teams and was full of grandchildren as the family grew. Her kitchen was always busy making brownies, chocolate pies, tea punch, and fudge for holidays, church functions, and gifts.
