I remember how welcoming Sue was to RRUMC when I started in 1999-2000. My husband George & I loved being part of the Pairables when Sue & Jim were in charged. Those were fond memories for both of us. She was a gracious, kind and sweet lady and her presence at Church will be greatly missed.

Sue was such a welcoming presence at RRUMC. I am a parishioner at St. Christopher Catholic Church, but as my husband is a member of RRUMC, I often accompany him to services & events there. I remember her warm smile & outgoing involvement. Sue IS "...all about the story..." Prayers to her & her family. Roberta T., Rocky River

Sue was a sweetheart, and worked @ RRCSD. She was in charge of arranging lunch dates for the 3 R's group & always very happy. We will miss her. I cannot attend her services as I came to Fla on the day she passed & will not return for 2 months. My condolences to Jim & Lynda.
