    Aunt Sue was one of the funniest and most joyful people that I have ever come across. She will be missed! What a wonderful legacy she has left through her work and family.
    God bless all of you with peace.

  2. I bad the pleasure of meeting Sue on many occasions through my sister Barbara Schwarz. She was funny, spunky, and a genuine person. She always used to joke with me about our name's, with a hello Sue from each of us. She was a true friend and a blessing to all people she met. She will truly be missed.

    Precious little Sue, thank you and Barb for making such a difference in the lives of so many women. It was such an honor to know and love you!

  4. Dear family,
    Sue was a sweetheart. I was privileged to know her through Wally. Wally was my boss at Osborn Equipment Sales. I think it was when you could smoke a pipe in the office….He was my 3rd boss ever and Just the best. What a wonderful couple.

    I’m sad for you, but happy for them.

    God’s blessings,
