So sorry for Sue's family. She was a very special lady. I am sure those first minutes in heaven were, and always will be wonderful

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.

Patti (Collins)Persons on Mar 10, 2020

I agree with everything my sister, Candy, said about Sue. She was there to support and encourage our family so many times with her warm smile and encouraging words and was one of mom's best friends at the Aredale Church. I also remember what a wonderful singer she was and how she loved to praise the Lord with her solos or in trios or duets. And I remember how she chose to choose faith in her God in all of life's tests and trials - and was an inspiration to those of us who watched her.

Candy (Collins) and Dave Culp on Mar 10, 2020

I was shocked and terribly sad, as I read the notice of Sue's passing. I can't tell you how much she meant to me as a child, and into adulthood. I will forever think of her as one of the most special Aredale church ladies that shaped my future in such a positive way. Sue always always, had a compliment or an encouraging word for me, and I loved her dearly. I know I can speak for my entire family, as I know we all loved her. It saddens me also, that I wont be able to attend her funeral, as I am too far away, but to all of you, her children, please know that I love all of you, and would love to be there. You have all been so supportive of our family, and friends like you are priceless!

Robbi Stevens on Mar 10, 2020

Blessings to all who loved and are mourning the loss of this lovely lady. Sue was faith-filled and genuinely kind and sweet. Prayers for peace and comfort, as she will certainly be missed by many. - Fondly, Robbi Stevens
