Sue enjoyed years of work as a floral designer for Big Bear grocery, as an administrative assistant for Mid State Physical Therapy and perhaps most significantly, as a teacher’s aide for Laurelville School District. Her heart was profoundly touched by the students she worked with, and she thought of them fondly all of her days. Sue dearly enjoyed her friendships with Jami Moody Lowery and Ellen Roe. Sue’s family is deeply grateful for the compassion and exceptional care Sue received in the hands of Laurie, Lisa, Amber and Heidi with FairHope Hospice of Lancaster. The family encourages donations to FairHope in Sue’s memory.
