Sue enjoyed taking trips to Chicago, especially to watch the White Sox. She loved taking family vacations to Daytona Beach.
Sue absolutely loved being surrounded by her family. She was everyone's biggest fan; she was the loudest cheerleader at her kids' and grandkids' sporting events, and she supported everyone's accomplishments. Sue had the biggest heart and was the most generous and giving woman.
