I was saddened to hear of Sue's passing and just found out yesterday. Words cannot describe what a wonderful caring person she was. I have known Sue for many years and my Daughter Michelle also had the pleasure of knowing Sue. I worked with Sue at Creighton and went to Church with her at Reidsville Christian Church. The last time I saw Sue I was in a hurry but she asked if I would sit and talk with her and I am so glad that I took the time to be with her. As always, the first thing she asked about was my Daughter Michelle and the grandkids and also my husband Denny who has Parkinson's and is being cared for at Avante. Sue was always concerned for others and what a presence for doing God's work here on earth. She was always smiling and even though she had her own problems, she never let them show nor did she ever utter a negative word. God has taken her from us but we have been blessed to have known her. Such beauty, grace, and love! God's Angel is home now and has been reunited with Bob. You will not be forgotten as your love that you shared here on earth shall remain with us always. Much Love, Sarah Totten

Steve & Mark... So very sad to hear about Sue's death. I loved her dearly. She was always such a gracious lady. On the other hand so full of life and spunk... always ready for a little adventure. I know that you both along with the grandchildren have so many precious memories of Sue to carry with you. I will always cherish the times that I was able to spend with your parents - they were quite a couple. I will always remember her SMILE and her laughter. I will always remember the thrill when she talked about Steve's children... and the smiles when she told me about Mark's new ideas. You boys had absolutely THE BEST PARENTS that anyone could ever ask for. I am sure that some days will be harder than others and that you will miss your dear mother; however, please hold tight to your memories and smile every time that the wind ruffles your hair... because it might just be another kiss from your mother. all my love & prayers as you walk this next journey...

Our paths first crossed when I was a young girl attending the Church of Christ with my mother, Mabel Brown. Many years later our paths crossed again when Sue and her family moved to the Port McCoy Road neighborhood. We became not only neighbors but also friends, and eventually co-workers at RCC. One of the best conversationalists I have ever known, Sue, with her natural-born warmth and graciousness, could instantly engage a total stranger in an in-depth interesting conversation. She was also to be admired for her ability to always see the glass half-FULL. She could immediately find and focus on the "good" in any situation. Positive thoughts just seemed to flow naturally from her. Last, but certainly not least, she was to be admired for her abundant faith in God and her tremendous love and pride for her family and friends. We all have been blessed to have had her in our lives.
