Sue’s love and passion for helping others was evident in the many different careers she held throughout her life. This was demonstrated not only by serving others working within the food industry but also by helping people find a home as a real estate agent. More recently, she was proud to become registered as a securities and financial advisor. She was looking forward to beginning a new chapter which also involved being in the service of others.
Sue was a social butterfly, enjoying camping, boating, golfing, riding motorcycle, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She loved God and served as children’s choir director, Sunday School and Catechism teacher, and was a member of the church choir. Sue will be remembered as someone who was always smiling and wore her heart on her sleeve. She often played the role of peacemaker and tried to find the positive in any situation. Those who knew Sue will remember her laughter, her smile, and her big heart. She had an overwhelming love for family and loved being a grandmother. She served many and was loved by all.
