    Sue was an amazingly thoughtful and caring person with the purest heart. She made me 2 perfect children I couldn’t live without. Rest, you are loved and will be missed enormously.

    I met Sue at MVCC in Utica NY in 1987. We rode back and forth to college together with Julie, and went to each others houses on our breaks. We remained friends over the next 20 some years, went to each others weddings, visited each other on vacation, and our kids, even tho there was a big age difference, all played together at their camp. At camp, Sue set snacks on fire in the oven forgetting they were in there, spread condiments on the neighbor’s dog, and we talked and laughed for hours around the camp fire about what was new in our lives since the last time we saw each other. She always said what a great Mom I was but I feel she was an amazing Mom. She loved her kids and was very proud of them. I will miss her greatly, but now she has found much needed peace. Sue, I will remember and love you always..

    I love you, Susie, and will miss your sweet (yet slightly evil) giggle and the fun we have had over the years. I know you are in a good place, sitting at the Old Mill with Larry and Jo and Ba, having a laugh…. you were an amazing mother and sister-in-law. You are gone too soon, and I hope your soul is forever at peace.

    Sue was more than a sister in law to me, she was my friend and my family. We have shared so many special moments together, whether it was coloring Easter eggs, building ginger bread houses, playing games, or calling each other to rant, listen or laugh. There has just been so much through the years that we have shared. There was one time that still makes me laugh. Sue had invited me to be in their wedding. I was living in Utica near them and she offered to help perm my hair. So Sue rolled up my hair and when the time came, started taking the rollers out. About half way through, Sue struggled with one roller, tugging and pulling my hair. After a few minutes, she just stopped and said, let me go make you a drink. A short while later, all of the rollers were out, my hair was fried, and there were a few bald spots on my head. All we could was laugh. Thankfully for the wedding we wore hats.
    Sue was an amazing sister to me and an amazing mother to her children. I knew I could call her anytime and she would listen. We spent many weekends together for the kids and us. We shared so many moments through the years. Last New Year’s we spent it together with my daughter Taylor. We laughed and danced around her living room. It was so great to see her so happy. We said this year would be the year that we both found our peace. I hope she has found it now. I know her spirit is soaring through the Adirondacks, hanging out at the pine lake lodge, and resting by the lake with the loons.
    I will miss you Sue, rest easy now.

    Sue and Scott were one of the first couples Doug and I met back in 2001 when we first moved to Wilmington. We met at one of Chris Robert’s sushi parties and became fast friends. Over the years we raised kids together, celebrated our kids’ birthdays together, celebrated NYE, went on double dates, and had an annual Christmas shopping trip. I will miss her warm smile, generous heart, and her friendship. I know she is at peace now. Until we meet again, my friend, I will miss you and I love you.

    Sue worked with me for a couple of years at Davis. She was such a kind, sweet person. This was before she had children and she had a cat named Spunk. She gave me a tiny stuffed cat one time that still rides on the dashboard of my car. I think of her every time I’m in my car. Rest In Peace sweet Sue.
