    Our sincere sympathy is extended to Sue’s family. I (Paulette) worked with her at TJSCH for many years and over the last five years have seen her at Diversicare where my mother is a resident, also. Sue always had a smile and a quick hello for me as we met in the halls. She was such a sweet lady.

    Sue may have had struggles with serious health problems over the past few years, but she always had a smile when talking about her granddaughters! Family was special to her, including her mother-in-law. Her enthusiasm for UK basketball was great, as well.
    I will miss her.
