Prayers to the family and friends of Susan. I joined Royal Arch a few years after Steve passed away, and always enjoyed seeing her and catching up. She always asked how my kids were doing. Prayers and blessings!

I am so sorry for your loss. Sue was a pleasure to work with and one of many who helped me in my career. I also enjoyed our lab lunches together. She will be greatly missed.

Sue was a wonderful, caring person. We shared many pleasant memories and lots of laughter as we gathered for Masonic functions and family events. Her counted cross stitch, celebrating Warren's 33rd degree has a place of honor in our great room, as does the cross stitch she did for the opening of the Learning Center in Dayton.

My most sincere sympathy to you and your families. I met Susie when she first moved to St. Marys and started working at the hospital We did not see each other often as the years passed and we worked and raised our families. We both lost our husbands in 2010 and developed a special bond in our healing and sorrow. She taught me a great game of Dominoes and shared her special days of making noodles with the church group. Loved her laugh and sense of humor.
