Prayers and Sympathy for the family. Sue was a very compassionate and special lady.
A dear sweet lady. One of the first to welcome us to First Baptist Church when we retired to this area. She surely heard "well done good and faithful servant". With deepest sympathies to her loved ones.
Aunt Sue was a wonderful homemaker and a gracious hostess. Our family loved her dearly and admired her for her wisdom and kindness. We will cherish her memory.We believe and trust all the promises of Jesus Christ our Savior!
Thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of loss
Many fond memories of my Aunt Sue. She was such a sweet lady. I’m so sorry for your loss. Prayers for all of you.
Dear Family, Sue was an icon in the community. She was my Sunday School teacher for years and was wonderful teacher. Her devotion to her family was very apparent. May God comfort as only He can during the coming days.

John and Daniel, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a sweet lady and she will always get extra points in my book for being able to handle Vane and his "Army "coffee" . Prayers for all of your family
