In early 2012, Sue and her family learned that she had breast cancer. She fought valiently through surgeries, radiation and chemo, and enjoyed every minute with family and friends. But the disease progressed to her brain and spine and Sue lost her battle on Saturday, February 22. 2014.
Sue loved her children and motherhood, and was involved in all their activities, from baseball and soccer games, to assisting in their projects for the fair each summer. She taught in their Sabbath School classes, recorded their lives in videos, pictures and scrapbooks, and encouraged and supported their interests and hobbies.
