Sue, one of the kindest people, will be missed by so many people. She spent much of her time doing things for others and I often met up with her when she visited my departed Mother in the Nursing Facility. My sincere sympathy to all of her family. Our world was a better place for Sue having been a part of it!
May memories comfort you at this difficult time. Sue was such a sweet lady who warmly welcomed us to Louisa United Methodist Church and the Louisa community. Keeping the family in our thoughts and prayers. Bill & Debbie Konecheck
