Sue and my mother Tamar, were colleagues in Ag Education for years.  Mom always spoke very Highly of Ssue, and that made my Mom's experiences than much fuller.  May she rest in well-deserved peace, and may her family always feel blessed by their memories of her.

Sue was a real sweetheart! She had that beautiful smile and always kind words whenever we met. She was from the old north side and lived just down Madison St from us. She and her sisters use to help my mother with us little kids back in the day. My sincere condolences to her family.
