She worked at Sears and later St. John’s Hospital as a unit clerk on the orthopedic ward led by Virginia Loftus. She enjoyed playing Euchre with her card club and was an accomplished nature photographer.
Sue was a kind and loving person, a devoted daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a lifelong Catholic, true in seeking a closer walk with God. She loved simple things and had a tender heart. Children gravitated to her smile and felt important in her presence.
