"We will always remember all the miracles that seem to happen when you were near. For example, When St, Anthony's asked us to knit scarves for the homeless, I said we couldn't do it because we didn't have the yarn or the money to buy the yarn. That afternoon you received a call from a friend. She had heard about a yarn donation. Needless to say we made 2500 scarves for the homeless that yr."

"Although I hadn't seen Sue recently, she was a part of my extended family.  She was an integral part of my life for sixteen years, more like a sister than a mother-in-law and always made our holidays, family gatherings, outings etc. cheerful and special.  She was a wonderful "Grandma Susan" to the boys and will be missed forever.  What a sweet and giving soul.  We love you Susan,"

"Oh, what a wonderful lady and funny. I will sure miss seeing her quilt tops arrive with a note from her telling me what she would like on it, and always a "I Love You" at the end of every note. You have many friends and family that will miss you deeply. I will never forget you."

"OK- this site ought to let us post more :)  So, that was my low when Sue brought me up! There are so many other stories-another favorite is a Clearlake classic when I was questioned about my first hickey (that's all I will say about that, but Dena knows what I mean by a "double feature"). Sue did not say a word to embarrass me:)  Typical Sue fashion-so kind and forgiving! I will miss you!"

This tribute was added by Phaidra Garcia on 28th December 2012

"Sue - I have spent all day trying to figure out what is appropriate to post!  I already miss you so much.  You were such an inspiration to me, especially after we returned from Clearlake on June 7, 1981 and I learned my dad had passed away the day before.  You were immediately there for me and brought me back to Clearlake only 2 weeks later to help me get over such an awful event. TB Cont"
