    A wonderful sister who took it upon herself to fill in as Mother to the rest of us when ours passed in 1967 to worry & fret over us until last week, when I can only guess that she said to herself. if they don’t get it by now,
    Well Que Sera Sera what ever will be will be
    love you & already miss you

    I am so sorry about Sue. I worked with her many years ago at St. Francis. She was a sweet lady. Her family is in my thoughts and prays at this difficult time.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of Sue……she was a special lady. We went to the same high school, she being two grades higher than me. Fun memories working with Sue at my first job which was St. Ann 4 Screen Drive-In. After all these years I still think of her. My sincere condolences to the family. Nora Burcks Gragert
