  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family on the loss of Sue. We hope to attend the Celebration of Life at the Eagles Club on Sat. January 15. Dave & Rose Gottschalk

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. I know she has been ill for a while so at least her suffering is over but I also know that is little comfort.

  3. Sue will greatly be missed by her night shift work-family. She has shown kindness and generosity to those who have worked with her. She was also strong and brave when the time called for it, we can all agree to that! We will miss her photo sharing sessions of her grandkids, and her gabbing about the Vikings and Twins. And her love for PURPLE!

  4. Sue was an excellent Health Unit Coordinator and will be greatly missed by her co-workers. I send my thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

  5. Sue will be missed!!! I definitely will miss especially her playing with my hair and scaring me half to death on the nights shifts and the baby pictures of her grandchildren she always showed off. She was someone special that I will never forget.

  6. I am sorry for your Loss,I enjoyed working with Sue on nights,we would always share pictures of our grandchildren,she will be missed.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

  7. I miss her so much, she was my person. She was not only my aunt she was my God mother. Yesterday it was my birthday and every year at midnight on my birthday she would text me happy birthday, this was my second birthday without that text. She is my hero.
