She went above and beyond and always did the little things to brighten anyone's day. She loved to talk about her family and was so proud of them. I hope in time the memories are a comfort to you.

There are not enough words to express how I feel about Sue. So many great memories shared with her and the family over the years. I practically lived at their house as a teenager. She was always one that was easy to talk to and always had time to listen. I have seen over the years all of the love her and Dennis have given to the Riverton community, always willing to lend a helping hand when one was needed. I know that she will continue to serve as she walks among all of those who have gone before her. She will be missed by so many but the memories will continue as she is remembered in so many wonderful ways.
