Sue was spiritual, compassionate, funny and loved meeting and getting to know people – she had a truly positive and grateful nature. Her life was filled with faith, family, and volunteering and advocating for others. She was devoted to her church community at Sts. Peter & Paul in East Liberty, and later St. Charles Lwanga in Homewood. We will all truly miss her wise and loving spirit.

Our family would also like to express our sincere gratitude to the many caregivers at Harmar Village/Amber Woods who assisted us in filling her final years withcare, laughter, love, and dignity.
