Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Sue for many years. She always had a smile on here face and love for everyone. The earths loss is heavens gain God Bless the family.

  2. Sue was like an angel always happy and bubbly I worked with her many years. One of the things I remember the most is when she wore a meter on her waist to see how many miles she walked between depts. in a day. She was always joking about it.

  3. To the friends & family of Sue Williams:
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I fondly remember Sue as a fun-loving, life-loving individual who truly enjoyed her time here on earth. Her energetic and enthusiastic outlook on life will be missed by the many people whose life she touched.

  4. Sue was a very close friend of mine for many years. We laughed together and shared both the good and the bad. Since I’m now in a nursing home and can’t get around alone I’ve had to depend on friends such as Sue to come see me. She did even though she was not well herself. I’m going to miss her terribly but I know she’s in Heaven with our friends and loved ones who’ve gone before. My thoughts and prayers to Mary Jane and Sue’s family.
