I first met Sue at Grandview Church of God in 1984. She and Cecil became our family in every sense of the word. Through the years that we went to church together and visited in each other's homes, she taught me many wonderful skills. She taught me to garden, to can vegetables and how to make chow-chow. She shared many recipes with me and one that I still prepare today was a chicken tortilla casserole. She had the gift of hospitality and our family shared many meals with her, Cecil and Linda. She was also the very first person I ever allowed to baby sit my daughters. She was trustworthy, and there are not many people who have that trait! She was a woman of integrity, honest and bold, and if you didn't want her advice, you better not ask for it! She always spoke the truth, in love, and I loved that about her. She didn't coddle you and she had absolutely no patience for a disobedient child! She had a strong work ethic and expected you to work hard, too, if you were with her. She didn't tolerate laziness very well. I loved her like a Mother and I will be forever grateful for her influence in my life when I was a young Christian. She loved God above all, above Cecil, above her children and her grandchildren and she told me once that was how it should be...that Christ should always be our priority. She dearly loved the Word of God and loved to talk about it. And she also loved hymns and gospel music and some of my sweetest memories are of our times of singing and worshipping together. I am gratfeul that I am confident that I will be reunited with my dear friend in eternity. She was a genuine, lifetime friend. I loved her so much and I pray for comfort for you all. Debbie, Linda and Darrell, I know how much you will miss your dear Mother. She was a great Lady that I was honored to call my friend. Love always, Cathy

Sue was always kind when you met her. She was the same every time you met her. Her smile was sweet and kind. She will be missed deeply. May the peace of God be with her family during this time of sorrow!

I was so sorry to learn of Sue's passing. We haven't seen her for some time as Jim's health has prevented us from making the trip back to KC. We always tried to visit with her when we were in the city. Our love and sympathies to all the family. She was a wonderful loving person.
