She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.

Left to cherish Drusilla's memory are her daughter, Brenda Sugameli (Ronald Holt); grandchildren, Tyson, Edward, Leilani, Shane, Cody; 22 great-grandchildren and many extended friends and family.

Heaven gained a beautiful Angel. An Angel to add laughter, song, and love to an already glorious place. Sing on Ms. Sue, until we meet again on the other side.
