Memories Timeline


  1. Miss Sue, you were a special lady and we will miss your spirit and twinkling eyes. At the next reunion, we’ll buy tickets in your honor.

  2. I’m sorry for the loss of your mother. She was truly a sweet person and will be remembered. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you Shelia.

  3. What a lovely lady! She and her husband were welcoming to all who entered their door. She was the best cook and her peanut butter fudge was world famous! Christmas was an extravaganza with two foot stockings and a Christmas village that should’ve earned its own zip code. They held family traditions tight! Their love for each other and their family was an example to all of us. Miss Sue’s kindness and love is instilled in her children. May all of you find comfort that only God can give you, the precious memories and love she had for all of you!

  4. I have such sweet memories of Sue. She cared so well for my daughter Lindsay while I lived up the street. And we attended Good News with her & her family.
    My prayers are with you all for God’s comfort and peace.

  5. Sheila; Ronnie and family; We are so sorry to hear of the family’s passing of your dear Mother and Mother in law; God’s grace is sufficient to carry you through these difficult days; Mom’s are never forgotten; just living away from the family for awhile . . . Prayers for all of you . . . Love to everyone ; David and Beth
